The CSS Merrimac looks like a steampunk Seashadow.  <_<

Two more Lindberg 1/144th B-1s from Home Bargains.

Neo: How can that be?

lol too true Chris ! And nowt wrong with the scale, other than it's not 72nd, but I thought it would look rather lovely parked beside a few airfix examples. Have any of you guys seen the kit ? The box is tiny ! Excellent box art as well

I didn't mean to do it, really! I just went to Neighbor Hobby on the weekend intending to grab a single bottle of Tamiya Acrylic and walked out with both the new tooling of Airfix's DH.82a Tiger Moth AND the Revell boxing of Heller's Arado Ar 196 A-3.

I don't know how it happened... But now I've got two more Tintin-themed builds in the works. I should stay away from the Internet... It fills my head with ideas and empties my wallet.
Thanks!
