Martin, don't even think of doing that K-12 in Spanish Republican markings!

Whats it worth?   ;D ;) :mellow: :wacko:

Not incurring my displeasure?

Anyhoo, I've taken delivery of a boxful of part started stuff won on ebay.  It included some ancient Airfix kits, the new tool Whitley, Lightning F2A, and Jet Provost T4 plus a pair of Spitfires.  There was also a Revell 72nd Seehund, Airfix Westland Scout and a Revell 48th Bristol fighter. 

I've passed along the stuff I'm not interested in along to some friends, but really need to have a proper dig through the box as there's a mixtrure of spared in there that could well be useful for other builds.

The Whitley I want to do as a real world aircraft, if I can get some info on the aircraft used for Operation Loyton in 1944.

I do not think that we (the collective forum) could come up with any suitable inducement to stop you, so I guess we will just have to accept that it will be Spanish Republican, SIGH.

I've built one of them.  IIRC the moulds were originally by Panda.
Clear parts are rather thick and the crew figures are meant for another kit and so need a spot of work to fit.
However, I enjoyed throwing it together.

Amazingly my order for bits for my Bullied Baltic tank engine was posted the day after Boxing Day and was through my door when I got home today!  :o

MOST impressed with RT Models service.  :thumbsup:

Tamiya f-84G. This thing is impressive. I picked it up to fill in a hole in my Thunderbirds collection. I'm going to build all I can of the Thunderbirds including support, public relations, and what if craft. I'm not lacking much, now. Oddly enough I'm missing the F-16 though. 





NMF so shiny even the box has glare!  ;D
