A friend and I went through to Whitley Bay today to see Frank at Kit Box, ended up getting a Classic Airframes Defiant Mk.1 and a Hobbycraft Dornier Do17Z both in 1/48 scale plus a 1/35 Zvezda L4500R Maultier.  :thumbsup:
Must visit there more this year  ;D

Ps, Frank's got a 1/72 Airfix TSR2 in for £25 if anyone wants one  ;D

First kit for 2010 - Airfix Typhoon 1b from my local newsagents of all places. Now all I need to do is to get to the local MZ and I can stock up on Hunters and some other stuff.

Really nice isn't it Geof. Painting the interior may be a bugger though, although you can't see much of it once finished I suppose ?

That'd be because the Lightning isn't as discounted as the other "£9.99 kits for £4.99" items. Funny isn't it? It's still discounted, but because it isn't as discounted as the others, you tend to reject it as poorer value for money.... :huh:

I got me one of they Revell Hunter F.Mk.6 from ModelZone. Has anyone else spotted how the MZ logo is the same as that TV show, Bargain Hunt?! :rolleyes:

Was looking for the new Airfix Harrier kits but no sign of them in Holborn MZ.

Didn't see any in the Hull shop, I might have got one if I had.  I'll keep a look out next time I go in, how much are they going for Tim?
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.

When I went to MZ the other day they had a load of M60's with the ERA on them, stooooooopid me didn't get any of them and now I have a job for one or two, involving M-1 Abrams and a Merkava turret. Now I can't go anywhere.
