From the Big H a 1/72 RS Models Me 509. Thinking Hungarian

Really belong in last years thread but ...

For Christmas:
1/48 Revell B-25J Mitchell

Pre-31 Dec 2016:
1/72 Airfix Me.262A/dH Mosquito FB.V1 Dogfight Double box - only the Mossie in it as a full kit, the pilot (glued into his seat) & canopy were all that remained of the Me.262
1/72 Airfix Spitfire Mk.IIa/Eurofighter Typhoon Then & Now Double boxing - appears to be all there

The latter 2 were bought by Mrs Wombat from one of the local op shops & far be it from me to discourage her, so only a gentle nudge in the direction of 1/48 for future buys was given. ;)

True that, at least she's thinking along the correct lines...  :thumbsup:

AFAIAC she was spot on with the scale...
;D

January 3rd.  Not bought anything yet this year.  I'm doing well...
The fact I don't get paid again for 4 weeks helps.

- 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.

At last a 1/72 PB-2Y Coronado the Mach2 kit. The reviews that I have read indicate either the -3 or -5.
Got an idea to change the engines and build a freighter variant.

Picked up the Revell 1/72nd CL 415 fire bomber last night. The kit is good but needs better looking props. Any replacements out there?
I'll meet you on the dark side of the moon.

Luvlyjubly :wub:

First unexpected ebay win: a Hasegawa 1:72 IAI Kfir C2 for just EUR 7,-. A good kit (better fit than the Italeri offering) with lots of whiffing potential.  ;D

The Wooksta!

My first Spitfire of the year!

Popped into Fenwicks to see what they had left.  Quite a bit, but not much for me.  Spotted a single mk IIa/Va and decided it looked lonely, so bought it and brought it home to sit happily with it's other brethren.

Re the whiffing potential, got an Italeri Kfir in The Stash - according to The Plan it will be a Finnish bird in the Swedish "Fields & Meadows" splniter camo with edges of wings and canards painted black so that they would appear just as shadows of the wing, in order to make the plane look like a Finnish Air Force Viggen in any aerial photographs. ;)

No, my whiffverse doesn't make a lot of sense, it's just an excuse to have the Finnish Air Force in the middle of Extra Freezing Cold Cold War be equipped with as (if not even more) varied collection as in OTL WW2.

Bought on Monday and finished last night, one Imperial Star Destroyer from Metal Earth. Very impressed with the outcome despite it being rather fiddly. Photos to follow.

Snuck into the house today:

1/72 Revell Panavia Tornado GR.1 - to be done as an Australian Army Air Corps CAS bird.
1/48 Tamiya Beaufighter VI - to be done as a navalised version for the RAM Air Arm (may take some time while I figure out just how to do that).

(May have to get a 1/48 Tamiya Beaufighter TF.Mk.X to do up as a navalised version for the RAN FAA, too.)

This was just delivered:



Laputa: Castle in the Sky Tiger Moth

No idea where it comes from. Probably some Japanese TV show but I couldn't resist.

Not to decide what scheme to paint it.....
