Got a box full of desktop travel agent airliners, 9 in total 1/144 scale or smaller. It's a mixture of modern day airliners with the exception of a 1/300 scale An-124 with Heavy Lift-VolgaDnepr. This feels to me that the decals were sprayed on.
I'll find stands for them and convert some into AEW platforms.

Unfortunately, one of the large cardboard boxes holding my stash in the garage has accumulated a great deal of condensation, so I've had to discard soggy boxes.  No plastic parts or decals/transfers were damaged (hurrah) but it is a salutary lesson in keeping a check on stash items in longer term storage.

That's why, if storing kits in places prone to condensation, it can be worthwhile storing transfers etc in a separate, dryer place, suitably labelled of course.

You were very lucky not to suffer damage to the transfers  :thumbsup:

First purchase of the year arrived. Revell 1/48 Tornado F.3 from Mr. Bezos.  It will be whiffed into a USAF F-24 Tornado Wild Weasel. 

Nice looking kit with a lot of detail, but I'm very surprised by the amount of flash on most of the trees.
So I got that going for me...which is nice....

Having just shifted a mountain of stuff to accommodate some new shelving, I've discovered a box of Mosquitoes that was rotten through and solid with mould.  The plastic is okay and cleaned up, but everything else has gone in the incinerator.

I know of people who use large plastic storage boxes with some silica bags to absorb any moisture that occurs. I keep my spare decals in a ring binder on top of my bookshelf.
If it gets wet up there they'll be the second lot of things I move, the first will be my Discworld collection.  :thumbsup:

I should probably de-stash all my kits and do a check for nests (ants and/or rodents).  They all look fine from the front but who knows what could be going on at the back of those cupboards.

New to my stash today.  All from various denizens of the Bay of Evil.

The box art on this one sucked me in - Roden can really put up some great art.

This one they sent the wrong boxing.  The one I thought I was buying was the (ERTL IIRC) release I remember building in the eighties.  Still, this is a restored mould and has all the parts including AMTs gorgeous chrome reverse wheels with baby moons (my favourite model car wheels).  It's just not moulded in dark blue.

- 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.

Found a good deal on eBay last month that arrived today...

Airfix 1/48 Sea Fury with resin cowling and Print Scale Canadian decal sheet. 

Likely to end up either RW Canadian or WHIF USMC.

So I got that going for me...which is nice....
