My stash just grew again (2012).
« on: December 31, 2011, 04:24:19 pm »
Here we go again, another year a new stash thread.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Well not "stash" as such, but the idea is that they'll end up in a diorama one day....

To-day I was being the loyal taxi to the sales driver and as I was near to Glasgow MZ, I had a quick look.

One Academy IL-2 Stromovik for £8.99.

It would have been rude to refuse as I needed another one anyway.

Picked up the PM Mirage IIIA/ Dagger 'cos it was cheap.
After looking inside the box I know WHY it was cheap.
Definitely WHIF-fodder because it would take more work to get an acceptable Mirage out of it.
What if... I had a brain?

A big box arrived from Model Hobbies:

1/35th Emhar Mark IV tank.....
1/35th Emhar WW1 British Infantry.......expect a steampunky Meerkat thing..... ;D

1/72nd Viking figures....a few ideas spring to mind.....

HobbyBoss 1/72nd Su-47 Berkut
2 x HobbyBoss 1/72nd F-22 Raptors
2 x Italeri Su-34 Flankers
2 x Zvezda Sukhoi T-50s....those new Russian stealthy things.

I feel China needs new and more equipment, as does India and Pakistan......etc.... ;)

Having been provoked since early September by the bloody thing sitting on my hobby shops uppermost shelf, I finally brought the future Bombcorde home yesterday. Only some equivalent 20 quid, but the size of the thing made my shelfspace planning obsolete in a whif(f)..
