FWIW IMO the Hasegawa 1/72 accessory set with the crew van, pilots and ground crew is worth getting for the 3 seated pilot figures alone.

Size (of the stash) matters.

And a good show it was too, albeit ENORMOUS these days. Not as big as Telford of course, but it's easily the second largest of the shows that I go to. I managed to get away with not buying any more kits, but I was given two for free  :thumbsup: Thanks to darthspud and my mate Dave Slater.  ;D

Lots of very good club and SIG stands there, and traders by the bucket load. But none of them had any Revell Hunters.  :banghead:

Come on Revell, re-pop it before Airfix come along and steal your thunder with an even better, but more expensive one.

Hm, I can't see the album there OGL, it tells me there's 63 images there, but I can't open the album. Do you need to 'Share' them?
