A PM Hawker Sea Fury T20.  I only wanted it for the engine cowling but I think I can do it as a Sabre engine version.

Well, don't know, seems to be a polish reedition of one of the two kits you mention. Maybe seeing the boxart will help you ?
The box was open when I bought it, so I've checked its parts two times. Fortunately nothing was missing, and the seller was honest!



 
The Frog kit comes with the pylon tanks so I think it must be one of those knock off kits from those moulds

How is the Orion Jason?  John's Toy and Hobby in Gastonia has had one forever at a reasonable price and I almost bought it last week, but went with a B-57 instead.  If it's a decent kit  I may break down and get it one of these days.

I got a 1/72 Slingsby T.67.M / T.3A Firefly today, I got it because CanMilAir have a set of decals for a Canadian operated one on their list and I'm trying to put together as many aircraft operated by the RCAF/CAF/or any operated for them by others (like the Northern Lights Hunter or Top Aces Consulting Alpha Jet)

Hi Evan,

Is that an aftermarket set or something out of someones spares box.

I'm looking for four tanks which are similar to 1/72 F-15 600 gal. tanks.

Is they anything in there that would work?

It looks like bits from someone's spares box.  I'll have to check on the tank shapes compared to the 600 gal F-15 tank, but they look to be very much of an Aero 2B streamlined shape, similar to most US bombs.

1/48 F-111E from Kitech.  Yeah I know, Academy rip off repop with poor fit, but for $5 I couldn't complain!

A surprise from Rollmodels:

2 Airfix Hawks, one Red Arrows, one Black Canadian.   They'd been ordered long enough ago that I'd completely forgotten about it.

HI ALL!

I dunno what scale it is (looks smaller than 1:200), but a snap-tite model of Silverbolt, Aerialbot commander.

Yup, that's right - a Transformers kit! 1984, transforms from robot into Concorde! Should be fun
