Does yesterday count?
Me, I have sworn off new kits (and second hand as well) since Christmas, on the basis I will not live long enough to build what I already have and need to have a good clearout.
OK there are a few things coming out I would want and I have allowed myself to "lapse" if I go to a show lol.
This nearly lasted 4 days when I made the mistake of going into MZ at Meadowhell to see RevD Sabredogs at 6;99, managed to get out safe - - but the craving was there :-(.
Now I find out RevD have a Raketenjager being released this month - - OY!

From a mate at 1:45AM, Warhammer 40,000 Eldar Grav Tank and my resolution to not buy any new kits lasted one hour forty-five minutes!

It was yesterday but I did wander into ModelZone at Lakeside whereupon I brought home a Revell 1/72 Flitzer. Swiss, Bulgarian, Italian.... who knows?  ;D

Also found the remains of Woolworths and came home with lots of Dr Who mini-figures. I plan to swap these with my mate for a Dalek/Cybermen pest control diorama! :lol:

A wife-ferrying trip to Chepstow produced a Revell 1/72 Gannet and 1/144 scale Harrier GR7, much to my amazement. We went to the local art shop and one wall was STUFFED with Revell, a few Airfix and even an Italeri or two.

I got the immortal question 'Would you like paint and glue for them sir?' They got the usual reply as well, 'No thanks, I almost certainly have more than you do already......' :)
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Regards

Accurate Miniatures 1/72 RQ-1 Predator.  HobbyLobby had 30% off plastic so I don't feel too bad spending $15 for it........

1st 2009 purchases:   Airfix 1/48 Canberra PR.9 (I just *love* these Canberras!!) along with a metal landing gear   and for the USS Monitor Landship, the 1/72 Pegasus Hobbies Porsche Tank.     

And that may well be most of my 2009 kit purchasing for some time, save for the B-57B when it comes out.

Daryl J., pretty excited about this Canberra series.

Swiss sounds really good Nick.

My local Woolies closed a day early - wanted to have a look at the fixtures and fittings to see if there was any storage possibilities available  :banghead:

Went into Croydon MZ - nothing of interest - BUT, by the look of it Revell Lancasters (the new tool one) will be in the Managers sale this week  :wub:

so far this year 2x resin figure kits from evilbay (in my defence they're not for me tho!) and lots of books from Finland ...

'Punatahdesta hakaristiin', Atso Haapanen, Apali, a book on Soviet aircraft captured by the Fin's (inc. Il.2, R.10, Yak 7, 9D, Mig3)
'Lentajan Nakokulma II' Jukka Raunio, Forssan, the fighters volume in a series covering Finnish aircraft development (inc. He.112)
'Venalaiset Havittajat #7' K. Keskinen & K. Stenman, captured Soviet fighter aircraft in Finnish service (Lagg3, I.16, etc.)
'Venalaiset Havittajat #9' K. Keskinen & K. Stenman, captured Soviet fbomber aircraft in Finnish service (Pe.2, DB.3, etc.)
'IL.28 in Finnish service #4', Jyrki Laukkanen, Apali, an excellent volume also covering other Finnish mapping, target towing types

one of my resolutions is to cut down on kit purchases (doesnt apply to books tho!) and to get some more stuff completed in the stash!

cheers, Joe

U feeling all right joe?  I could have sworn u said thinning out the build pile.

(tounge firmly in cheek :)  )
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.
