Just won on ebay - some Italian kit (don't know the manufacturer) of the Lotus Esprit Turbo.  I've a feeling it's in 43rd scale, so it'll go nicely with the Aston Martin DB7s I have inthat scale.

Airfix Spitfire XII (2) and XVIIc pre-ordered...it's gotta be that way in The U.S. of Yankia yet.
Hobby Boss Ta-152C
Kinetic S-2F

None to be rw.
 
Spitty:  USMC Korea in a P.R. role, overall gloss sea blue
Focke Wulf:  USAF SEA, role unknown
Stoof:  Israeli  or some African off-beat ground attack.   

And that's about enough purchasing for 2011.  Key word:  About
