Via Ebay, and it arrived under 24 hours after purchase.

I always hope for the best.
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

From Spruebrothers a 1/72nd Cyberhobby Sea Vixen FAW1 which Daryl point ed out was in their sale last weekend !!

Less than a week from the US to UK in Christmas Week and the cost was way cheaper than the list price here even with the postage  :thumbsup:

From the only shop in town which stocks models

1 x 1/76 Airfix Saracen A.P.C.

I know it's in a book I have around here somewhere....


From the Modelzone sale in the Trafford Centre:

All Revell, all 1/72nd:

F9F-4/5 Panther ('cos I want the Blue Angels Decals)
Beaufighter TF.X ('cos I want the engines)
Norseman (for the spare skis/floats)
Do.28 Skyservant (several projects and only one in the stash)

Also: Pegasus 1/72nd ISU-122/152 Assault gun twin-pack. (To make PW armour, and for the DShKs)

Couple of points for folk visiting the Manchester Modelzones:

1. The City Centre branch and the Trafford Centre branch have very different sale stock. For instance, there are NO F-89 Scopions at the Trafford Centre one but there are loads at Deansgate.

2. A lot of the stuff in the Trafford Centre branch is price ticketed wrongly, at prices higher than the ones shown on the website. However they do come up correctly when they scan them, so CHALLENGE THE PRICE if it seems wrong. For instance, the Grumman Panthers are ticketed up at £5.99, but they're actually £3.99.

Went to Chestermoor with a friend this morning and got a 1/35 MiniArt Mercedes-Benz Type 170V Personenwagen, looks a cracking kit plus you get their WWII German Civilians with it which includes two female and one male civilian, one Polizei and one Hitler Youth figure. My friend the other day got the Italeri boxing of the 1/48 Academy Hunter and he kindly gave me the Dutch, Indian and Singaporean transfers from it so now I'm thinking should I do the A400m Indian instead of RAE....hmm........ ;D
