After you safely secure one for yourself, tell us where you found it.  ;D 


I wonder if there is a "Croc" in 1/144 scale?

That ANT-7 is very 'Fokker-like' isn't it? I wonder if a 'Southern Cross' might be a suitable conversion source too?
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! :)

I remember something similar - but larger - on a Bird Dog in Vietnam...

Found it!

"At'saGoodBoyDen!"

IIRC it was a marking option in someone's 1/48 kit...

Now those would come in handy.

But I can't help thinking that whatever you went to put them on they wouldn't quite fit...

My concern as well but who knows!  Twice now I've forced oddball mouthes onto kits they don't belong and they've both worked but I was probably just lucky. Good thing is the sheet comes with a ton of different sizes. I think it would be worth rolling the dice. I think I might snag one.  I've been wanting to "try" Aliexpress anyway.

I must say I've ordered about half a dozen things from Ali and all have arrived safely.
There was one that didn't get shipped, but the site was on the ball and reversed the transaction without me having to do anything.

Mainly cheap figures, and if you can score 'free shipping', it makes the deal even sweeter.

Found on dA.  Probably should be in Whiffs found on DeviantArt, but the title just lends itself here:
