Crewe was my first show this year.

Found a pair of under table bargins.
Matchbox Hp Victor for less that 15 quid.
Italeri F-15E strike eagle.

And located by a joint effort of Weaver and Army of one.
Old tool airfix Lightning F3 with lots of Aeroclub white metel extras. For less than a fiver.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

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! :)

Oh WOW.....my 7yr old son Max would love your Star Wars stash..........

My intentions of attending the Crewe show to get some tools lasted all of about 90 seconds.......started with a 1/72 hobbyboss box stating two kits of a P39 (3) an Airfix ADV F3 Tornado (5) and P38 started (2)........then after a conversation with Weaver an me moaning about how much people were wanting for Airfix Bulldogs, the side by side monoplane he finds one for 5.....got that.....and a (5) for a P80 from H as well, that was sorted months ago.......got some Trumpeter tools......a handle with 3 blades, a scribbing tool and a riveting tool.......then as I was about to leave i found the only kit i really wanted.......an Airfix Grumman Duck for 5......
BODY,BODY....HEAD..!!!!

Opps, sorry Weaver, edited now.  :banghead:

REDUCING wing span? That's HERESY!  :wacko: :unsure:

Bought on ebay:

Revell Shackleton AEW2

This may well look rather different...

That's okay Kip, I just assumed you did it deliberately to have a go at me!  ;D

Rest assured that if the U2 is improved out of all recognition by making it faster and more maneuverable, that ridiculous original wing will find a new home. Already got a tentative idea..... :wacko:

Nope..... ;)

The Vautour/262 hybrid I was discussing involves a 1/100th Vautour and a 1/72nd Me 262.

I'd like to build a U2 with Starfighter wings and vice versa.

What scale is the Starfury The Chaos?

Fred

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.
