From the 'Big H'...


3 1/72 Airfix RAF Phantom FGR2. Looks a lovely kit and has even more weapons than the 'Senior Service' variant.

Also got some EB and resin as well.

(Edited so that it didnt read like the resin & etch were included in the kit  ;) G)

Any chance of a video of it in action?

Please and thank you.

You realise you've made me a Youtuber now, right? Couple of hundred videos of me sitting in my bedroom talking about my anxiety, introversion and geekiness incoming.... ;)

Fantastic.  Worth popping your U-Tube cherry for.
Thank you.
Now, how about some videos of you playing Kerbal with your talking head in the corner?  ;D

Regrettably, since my PC has slightly less computing power than the real Apollo guidance computer, it hasn't been able to even run KSP stably, let alone run it while recording both the game and my ugly mug, since the days when Jebediah Kermin still believed Werner Von Kermin's promises... :angry:

Brad, the Iskra looks a cute lil thing, too.  :thumbsup:

I only read a review of that kit this morning and it was very favourable  :thumbsup:

Meanwhile I received a small package from our own Chris Hall this morning which contained rather a lot of mainly WWII style bombs from various nationalities, including some nice early War shapes which I was particularly after.

Thanks Chris  :thumbsup:

Yeah.. it looks really good! I'd been waiting on one of these to appear for a decent price and this one showed up. It was cheaper than the run of the mill version. This one comes with a slew of decal options, PE, resin parts and all that good stuff. I have to admit the box art drew me in, too. Is this the computer-ey stuff? Looks like it to me. CGI? If so, it's some of the better CGI and the nice colors and how cool the plane looks...   caught my eye. I think it's a very cool looking jet, even if it ain't got much "teeth."

Oh and a quick glance at the innards had them looking very nice, as well.  :thumbsup:

Just got my hands on a Heller 1/72 L-749 Constellation. Given that I usually gravitate to 1/144 kits... this one looks like a monster!
Dude it's Monster-ish, isn't it? I have the USN boxing with the radar hump on the top. I used to sit it up on the cupboard as decoration but I knocked it over once and twice and that was the end of that. Too damn big to put anywhere else so off into "cold storage" she went. (under the bed)   ;D


You going to build that one any time soon? I'd love to follow allong that.

 ;D ;D ;D   That would be awesome.  ;D   


I used to watch Robbaz when he played it. I'd love to get the game myself but if I did, I may as well huck all my models into the dumpster.

Received from the big yellow H today

2 x 1/72 Airfix FGR.2 Phantoms which cost me only 4.18 in total, I have another on back order so should receive another one soon.

The cost was greatly reduced by a voucher from the other half for Christmas  ;D

Scouring my local Home Bargains (UK Only) for 1kg of winegums for 1.99 when I came across 1:48 Revell F-105D T-Stick II Thuds for 4.99 each.  I couldn't resist :thumbsup:

From a clearance sale at Squadron, 1/48 HB Hawk T.67...

Likely to be built as on of the 18 built for Iraq in the late 80s, but then left undelivered following the 1990 invasion of Kuwait.  After sitting in limbo for a year they were diverted to the RAF to form two RAuxAF squadrons. 
So I got that going for me...which is nice....

Is that a "Mk.67/T-59" AD ?

My father sent me money unexpectedly for the new year, in case this is his last year (or mine) :-\
I ordered at Unicraft the Kogiken III twin-fuselage and the Mitsubishi Zero twin-boomer (radial Fokker D-XXIII), then a 1/144 F-16 to complete (I will turn it into a tail-sitter), and there was still a little money remaining: a Zwezda Ju-87 1/144. Thanks Daddy! ;D
