Four new Airfix Jet Provost T-3's direct from Hornby arrived today.

And one Airfix USAAF bomber support set via Mr Models ebay sales.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Is the JP3 a new mould kit? I'd never heard of it if it is.
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! :)

Renwall Voisin Biplane and Antoinette

I couldn't resist because I remembered its shape appearing in early 20th century paintings

And the USAAF set?  I like the look of the tanker.

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Italeri 1/48 TR-1A/B

which is actually a U2 (which should make PR19_kit envious), with a two-seats version looking charmingly funny

I might try to smoothly remove the wing pods, to make them look even longer
