No Tonka, but I came out with Revell Hunter FGA.9 for a fiver & a Revell Victor for eight quid!

Eight quid for a Victor? :blink: Damn, anyone willing to pick one up for me? There's no Modelzone anywhere near me, and it's not listed on the website...

they aren't in the sale sectionn but take a look through modelzones list of non-reduced 1/72 and you should find it, thats where i did!
KEEP THE VULCAN FLYING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Modelzone raid:

1 x Victor (couldn't carry two, so I'll go back for another one if Pyro wants this one)
1 x Hunter FGA.9
1 x Hunter F.6 (thinking about those Silver Cloud conversions.....)
1 x Frogfoot
1 x 1/76th Wespe SPG (possible WWII APC?)
1 x 1/72nd M60 A1 w/ERA

Called in Hobbycraft on the way home: not very impressive to be honest, and they're trying to sell that same 1/32nd Phanton for full RRP: that'll go well..........

Just received a package of kits I ordered from another modeler on ARC.

Italeri RF-84F
Airfix  FW.189
Airfix Fairey Battle
Supermodel Aermacchi MB-326K (single seat attacker)
Primere EMB.312 Tucano
Lo Models AT-3 Tsu-Chang

I haven't decided which will be RW and which will get WHIFFED.

We don't just embrace insanity here.  We feel it up, french kiss it and then buy it a drink.


Went to the Modelzone sale yesterday got a Hasegawa B-26 F/G Marauder with some vouchers I got for Xmas.

To be honest most of the sale stuff is either kits of wrong period, ones I have loads of (Hunters) or wrong scale !

Still after deliberating I may go back and get the Revell 1/32 Me 109K and Ju 87, at the price on offer it would be rude not to  :thumbsup:
Decals my @r$e!


Today via Pat Postino, from the bay of evil, an Airfix 1/72nd scale Mig-23, minus its instructions, but I should still have some from the last one I built.
3 quid plus £1.41 postage. The box is near immaculate, and the kit is also in spot on nick. Not the best of kits I know but at that kind of money it will do.

If you cant eat it hump it or fight it,
Pee on it and walk away!!


From the LMS, the 1/35 AFV Club Night Fight Group 3 in 1 set which includes a 7.5cm Pak40, a 251/22 Ausf.D Pakwagen and a 251/1Ausf. D falke plus a shed load of IR night sights and IR lamps. The night sights and lamps will get used on a E10, E25 and a E100 while the 251/1ausf will be built captured by the Russians, the gun and the other half-track will go on two diorama's made to look burnt out and all for £35.  ;D :thumbsup:
