The January edition of SAM dropped through the letter box yesterday and there are 3 WIF builds in there, all 1/72. Fantastic Plastic's Vickers Armstrong 559 : Anigrand's XF-103 Thunderwarrior and XF-108 Rapier.


.....and tomorrow the WORLD!  ;D ;)

Why wait ?  ;)


It's New Year's Day today, a public holiday.

World Domination will have to wait a few hours.  ;D
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! :)

Nice builds  :thumbsup:

Ah yes, the 559 that's produced by Special Hobby (according to the panel at the top of the article).  Same issue claims 35000 Grumman/General Motors Wildcats were built (actually 7885, so only 443% wrong!).

Yup and the article on the Cobra build is also in the Jan edition of MAM. I'm making no comment on that until I've read them both other than to wonder if the author was paid twice.

Still waiting for December's SAMI, which weren't sent out until Monday the 21st according to correspondence with them  :-X
Decals my @r$e!

Even if you do wait until the first working day of 2021, you will find World Domination a very much over rated  pastime............I do have the Boy Scout World Domination badge, but I gave it up years ago and took up Whiffery instead; it's much more fun!!
