I got a plastic kit.... in my Christmas cracker! Tiny little plane like a P-26 Peashooter about the size of a penny!

Those Lightnings must be selling like hot cakes!  :thumbsup:

I just noticed that the clear sprue has two unused parts, like rounded off  Firestreak nose cones. I can't IMAGINE what they're for.......  ;)
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Mrs z gave me a piece of paper with "coming soon" and this picture on it.

Woo hoo!

Plus I treated myself to A Trumpeter 1/72 Wyvern to add to my PDRV airforce.

- 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.

take off and nuke the site form orbit, nope, time for the real thing, CAM and gridfire, call special circumstances. 
wow, its like freefalling into the Geofront

Waiting patiently for the F.6 now.  Expect to see mountains of cheap second=hand Hasegawa F.6s when it comes out.

Have noticed Lightnings, Blenhiems and Dornier 17s pop up on eBay in the last few days....

The Airfix F.6 Lightning is due out about July 2014

I got ANOTHER two Airfix Lightning F2As today for my Christmas and birthday pressies, total count now four.  :lol:

My #1 daughter, who works in the model dept. of 'A major Oxford department store' said they ordered a box of 48, and had 26 pre-orders. They'd sold ALL of them by the end of the first day! I said they'd never make enough of them.

Surely a conversion to an F6 isn't THAT difficult? One could use bits from the Frog/Hasegawa/Revell kit, like the Red Tops and the tanks and Bob's your uncle.
