1/48th Zvezda La-5FN from Aeroventure. Looks good in the box. :o Wondering if I should do it as OOB, or as a Brit version of the Normandie Neimen with the VVS, I think there was an artwork of that here recently?

I like that idea Geoff  :mellow:

Picked up today for the grand total of £10, all 72nd:

Master Craft Su-17M4
Master Craft Su-17/22UM-3K
Master Craft Su-22M4/R
Master Craft Su-20/R

Just got to work out what to do with them now!




Today I picked up one of those kits I've wanted for ages;  a 1/72 Tamiya F4D Skyray.  This is one of my favorite USN aircraft, so it may end up as a real-world build.

...but then again I have those Aeronavale decals...hmmm....?
So I got that going for me...which is nice....


Lovely kit AD - and Aeronvale - yesssss  :wub:
Decals my @r$e!

Two Pavla Lightning F6 resin cockpit detail sets

Lee, do you think these cockpits could be modified into a two seater for the T.4/5/55.  I need some cockpit details in my Lightning trainers

My order from Squadron Mail Order arrived at my home the other day.

1/32 scale Hasegawa Fw 190D-9

1/32 scale Hasegawa Fw 190A-8

1/48 scale Dragon Ta 154/Fw 190 Mistel

1/48 scale Tamiya Fw 190A-3

The 1/32 scale Fw 190A-8 will be made into a what-if, I will be making this into a plane that has the big tail from a Ta 152 fitted to it.



Over the last few days:
1/72 Hasegawa F-4E, no decals - will go with whif markings. and AV-8A/Harrier GR.1 - not sure what I'll do with this one
1/144 LS MiG-25 - backup parts source for Tu-26MP bits
1/144 Revell MiG-31 - might be built as part of a team with the Tu-26MP using datalinked radar and firecontrol.

Just arrrived from Lone Wulf, a 1/72 Classic Plane/Luedemann resin Junkers EF-140B/R. This was the Soviet development of the Ju-287, with two underwing Mikulin engines, remotely controlled barbettes above and below the fuselage and wing tip fuel tanks. I've never had a kit from this manufacturer before but the resin parts are nicely detailed, although they'll need more cleaning and trimming along their mating surfaces than, say, a Planet Models kit.

Also got two Revell Tu-22 Blinders from Modelzone. Don't really need them, but they were in the sale for only £7.99 each - - - -


From Monk Bar Models in York:

Airfix 1/76 Bristol Bloodhound
Revell 1/72 MiG 1.44.  I'd never realised how big this girl was!  I was thinking about swapping parts with a Tiffie, no chance of that, the MiG looks a 1/48 kit up against it!
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.
