First stash addition this year, another Airfix Focke-Wulf 190 A-8 and a tin of Humbrol matt black.

Thought that I made a bargain with a reasonbly priced Hasegawa 1:72 Wirbelwind tank from evilbay, but it turned out that the Flak turret was completely missing (bag with sprues nicely sliced open...). The rest was/is complete, though, and the seller refunded almost 50% of what I paid for the kit.
But now I have "only" a Panzer IV... maybe I turn it into a whiffy late war variant, with a new, sloped glacis plate and a different turret.

I had one expected and one unexpected package waiting for me yesterday.

1/72 Mach 2 Vickers Viscount. Would love to do something like an Australian MPA or AEW with this but I've heard Mach 2 kits can be a bit tricky and I'm pretty much only just back to modelling after 30 years or so.

1/72 Airfix Rotodyne. This was a completely unexpected gift from a friend who knows how much I love the aircraft. Makes 3 in my collection now. I have to do something with them :)

From a charity shop near me, I picked up an Airfix  Fokker troop ship, I already have one of these, but I think I paid more than 2.50 for it. The box is a bit scruffy, but the contents are all there and good. The box is dated 1979

Great find.  :thumbsup: On ev!lbay these tend to go for insane prices, and the Fokker 27 has a lot of whiffing potential.

Cheers, both will be wiffed into Honduran airforce service, one a maritime patrol a/c armed with either sea skuas, or penguins and a cannon. The other an ELINT  bird, or just a transport.

OK, now you got me thinking about a build featuring the penguins from Madagascar...

I have to go to the LHS today to pick up glue, tape and styrene stock.  Can I do so without buying another kit?

Correct.  Although technically I didn't buy another kit.  I bought two.
1/72 Hasegawa Sd.kfz 7 half track to be mated with a fuel tank from an Airfix AEC.
1/24 Revell Fiat 131 Rally car for the Theme Build (Italian) at the Ballarat NNL in May.  It may be rebadged as a Lada.

Looking forward to that. I have one in the stash, too (was lucky to stumble upon a cheap one on ebay, and immediately snatched it... :rolleyes:), but with no serious plan. Maritime patrol / Middle America sounds nice.  :thumbsup:

From ebay:
CMR Spitfire mk IXe - the Czech boxing with oodles of Czech/Isreali markings

From Uncle Frank

Airfix junkers Ju 87 B Stuka - the old Series 2 one - in exactly the same boxing as the one that was my third ever aircraft model. Post war Spanish for this one, probably in the rather fetching blue that the Buchons wore.
