Heard it half an hour ago on Britmodeller.  I'll be checking MZ and Fenwicks on my way home, although I want to check out the rum counter in the latter too.

It's the wrong side of bleedin' payday!  Although Wor Lass owes me a few bob....

I only got the newsletter 30 mins ago..............
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! :)

You would be better asking Steve  to hold some for you, as the Wooksta will minesweep any Spits 22s that make it to Newcastle this week !!!

I doubt it.  I'll only be getting four at most this week, because I'll be getting a dozen from Uncle Frank anyway.  The first one will be ready for Monday...

And quite oddly, I want to do about 6 real ones - Egypt, Hong Kong, Rhodesian and three 603 Sqn ones - mainly as I already have the decals.

I'm actually visiting his place of employment today  ;D

Will only get one or two up here, don't want to carry to much home and besides you should "support your local model shop" whereever possible  :thumbsup:
