JAG Collective USS Virginia (from the wife)
Skywave Iwo Jima Landing
Skywave D-Day landing
Skywave Secret German Base
Skywave Naval Base (the new one that comes with ww2 torpedo boats)

A friend and I went through to Whitley Bay today to see Frank at Kit Box, ended up getting a Classic Airframes Defiant Mk.1 and a Hobbycraft Dornier Do17Z both in 1/48 scale plus a 1/35 Zvezda L4500R Maultier.  :thumbsup:
Must visit there more this year  ;D

Ps, Frank's got a 1/72 Airfix TSR2 in for 25 if anyone wants one  ;D

First kit for 2010 - Airfix Typhoon 1b from my local newsagents of all places. Now all I need to do is to get to the local MZ and I can stock up on Hunters and some other stuff.

Really nice isn't it Geof. Painting the interior may be a bugger though, although you can't see much of it once finished I suppose ?

That'd be because the Lightning isn't as discounted as the other "9.99 kits for 4.99" items. Funny isn't it? It's still discounted, but because it isn't as discounted as the others, you tend to reject it as poorer value for money.... :huh:

Well i liked the look and feel of the first kit i thought i really should get another so i can do a 60's and a 70's version.

(Plus it helps Ali put and may encourage futher kits in this line  ;D)

Didn't see any in the Hull shop, I might have got one if I had.  I'll keep a look out next time I go in, how much are they going for Tim?
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.
