Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

It certainly does, thanks, it's a sight closer than Antics in Gloucester, which is 20+ miles from me.  :thumbsup:

From the Airfix Last Chance sale:

2 x 1/76th Bedford QLT & QLD trucks
1 x 1/144th Boeing 727
1 x 1/144th Boeing 737

No definite plans, but the nice Britannia Airways logo in the 737 has got me thinking about Brits In Space....

Fleabay was hit a bit hard over the festives. Been lurking here for a little while and whiffing is calling:
Revell's 1/72 Rafale, NH90 Italieri's Gripen & OA4, Airfix Hawk & Tucano.

Rafale & Skyhawk will be in RN colours, the latter for the Cold War GB.
The others wil follow on from my Scottish Independence "yes vote" back-story, posted elsewhere on this site.

From Evil-Bay (broke my golden rule and bought from S.Korea).
Tamiya 1/72 Jaguar GR-1.  Made in Italy which makes me think it's a reboxed Italeri kit.
This is another plane I built (and wrecked) as a kid.  In this case an Airfix Jag but I can't find one of them as cheap as this.
No idea what to do with it but it has the nose moulded separately which is always useful when whiffing.

- 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.

You are correct in that thinking. Italeri have a re boxing arrangement with Tamiya that allows easier access for Italeri to the Japanese market for some of its 1/72nd aircraft kits. It also allows Tamiya to fill gaps cheaply in its own line up.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.
