Ideally, you need someone who lives here but occasionally travels to Sweden. A PM to Kitbasher may be of some use.

Yeah, that is a thought. 
That said - SWMBO does have some comments on me adding to the stashTM more rapidly than building from it..  :rolleyes:

Had a parcel arrive on Christmas Eve, all 1/72:

PM Sea Fury - to be Allison-turboprop-powered, inspiration from Dizzy
Yak 23 Flora, to be DB-603 powered (or maybe RR Griffon...), inspiration from Jorel
A4 fuselage, to be mated to a Sukhoi-21 rear fuselage and (stop reading here, Kit!) cut-down 707-style wings- again, inspiration from Jorel.

(I am also working on an F4U Corsair with Allison turboprop, again inspiration from Dizzy,  but I already had that in the stash)

Decals my @r$e!

A Begemot decal set ordered a couple of days ago at an Ukrainian model shop arrived today, together with the GOFFY T-34 conversion set from ev!lbay. Probably the last addition(s) to The Stash(es)™ for this year. But who knows...?  :rolleyes:

........ (stop reading here, Kit!) cut-down 707-style wings- again........


But you'll have the chopped off bits to add on to something else.  ;D :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

And, last night i just couldn't sleep so i sat at the pc and got on the AK interactive site... ended up ordering the 1/48 Modelsvit P-51H and a couple of washes... :rolleyes: ;D

Delivered yesterday...



Well, although i'm still waiting for a couple of orders, these are certainly the last items added to my stash in 2021 cause i'm pretty sure the rest won't be delivered this week. See y'all in the 2022 thread. ;D :mellow:

Recently arrived, as in less than half an hour ago... from eBay

1 x 1/72 Xtrakit Hunter T.7 to be an Institute of Aviation Medicine aircraft and so will be real world so I can pinch the two seat part from a Matchbox Hunter for something else

From the Whirlybird sale

2 x 1/72 Whirlybird Hawker P.1121. I enjoyed the first one I built years ago, the undercarriage looks as if its resin now and not white metal.

1 x 1/72 Whirlybird RAF Puma update set.

Word to the wise - the fit on that Xtrakit Hunter is poor, especially the wing/fuselage as there's a weird block thing in the well that impedes fit.  If you've got the Freightdog P.1083 Hunter wing conversion, use the resulting spare Revell wings on the Xtrakit - the kit ones look to be too narrow in chord compared to the Revell - although that odd block thing needs to come out and you'd need to grout out .

I may have some spare Hunter T-bird front ends, resin ones copied direct from a built up Matchbox one (I still have the mould too).  Not sure where the spines are, but I'll pass some along at some point.

It's really annoying that there isn't an available decent Hunter T-bird in 72nd off the shelf.  The PJ conversion is hard to find but very nice and builds up easily and the Odds and Ordnance one looks good too, but these add an extra £15-20 on top of the eyes and sockets charged for the Revell kit these days.

Odds and Ordnance were taken over by AlleyCat. Their items are only available in the UK through Models for Sale who have very limited stock.
