Popped into Plastic Pastimes today. Whoops! Came away with the following:

Airfix Viggen (To be either German, or Swedish Imperial Navy)
PM Mirage III/Dagger (Argentine markings for my Skyraider, maybe a U-2 style spyplane from the kit)
Matchbox Skyhawk (Dunno yet, but I've never built a Skyhawk and they're cool. And TINY! Maybe a fighter version with radar and Sidewinders)

All 1:72 of course.

Received from Hannants today

all 1/72 bits for some FW 190's

2x Ta 152 Tails for FW 190's
1x LTF 5b torpedo

still need to get another Ta 152 tail or possibly a Ta152C to enable me to make a D-14 as well.

Airwaves did a Ta 152C engine, don't know if it's still available.  I *might* have a spare one somewhere or possibly the DB603 cowling from a Dragon 152C.  I'll have a look.

Not such an easy conversion so you might be better off with a Hobbyboss 190D as the plastic is thick and quite soft, so sanding will be easier.  Failing that, the Airfix 190D is a nice basis to work with, once you thin the u/c doors, detail the cockpit a little and replace the canopy.

Thanks for the offer Lee. I have an Academy Fw190 D-9 in my stash to use as the basis for the D-14 or I could buy a Dragon Ta 152C and swap the engine with the Academy kit and confuse the h**l out of the JMN's

Found that Sprue Brothers is having a 50% sale on Dragon kits so I have ordered a Ta152 C to replace my stash item which I will use for the D-14. Thanks for the idea Lee.

I got the Academy 1/35 M2 Bradley. Based on the low price, I expected the kit to be pretty basic, but it has a full interior and looks well designed. It's an earlier Bradley, but I was going to use the turret for something else.

Be careful.  Scooters grow on you.  I've got 8 of them in my stash, of various makes and variants.
