Just back from the Bolton show.

Kinda got carried away.....................................
And very Target heavy.

all 1/72nd scale.

From Thorvics stash.
Welsh modeles Boeing 737 7ES Wedgetail AEW.
Dragon Sturm Tiger.
Hasegawa M-24 Chaffee.
Airfix Ju-87B/R Stuka.
Cromwell models Conqueror mk1.
Cromwell models Tortoise heavy assault tank.

From Transport Models (raided yesterday)
Trumpeter Pz.SF. V "Sturer emil" 128mm SP anti tank gun.
Trumpeter Challenger II MBT.
Trumpeter C1 Ariete MBT.
Hobbyboss Zlin Z42M.

From the show itself.
Airfix Fairey Battle.
Italeri Ju 87D-5. (from Chrisnord)
Northwing BAe U-125A JASDF Air Rescue aircraft. (this beast cost an arm and a leg, those who where there know how much I shelled out for it)

And waiting at home from an Ebay buy.
Heller AMX 30 twin SP anti aircraft system.

I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Tamiya 1/700 Z-class destoyers - One will be HMS Nonsuch (Z-38) and the other i will look to do a Type 15 conversion.



Arggghh - that guy in front of the stage at Bolton with all the books and magazines had an old (yellow) Navy Newswith an article on Type 15s and a damn great diagram. Meant to mention it to you but forgot....sorry! :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:


I was restrained at the Bolton Show, not knowing where the next pay packet's coming from:

Airfix 1/72nd Skyvan, still sealed, for a very reasonable price right at the end of the day,

Plasticart 1/72nd Su-7, mostly for nostaligia value since I remember doing one as a kid, but of course, it has whiffing potential,

Some packs of white metal accessories from Wee Freinds: 1/76th steering wheels, 1/72nd 0.50 cal ammo boxes and 1/72nd 0.30 cal ammo boxes.


The rest of it was tools and supplies: thick CYA, canopy glue, Tamiya tape, clear plasticard, sanding sticks, sculpting tools and paint brushes (inc. two 10 x 0.... :blink:)

Total less than 40: not bad given that I could have walked away with a couple of hundred quid's worth of books alone... :rolleyes:

Splashed out 2.95 on this ,great wiffing fodder . Didnt even have to break in the white fiver.

The look I got off Martin ....................well best described as pitying. Mind you he had just spent a kings ransom on ......................just about the whole shop. ( see above post)




The only downside I see on these re releases is the absence of the display stand.
Im pink therefore Im Spam...and not allowed out without an adult

Airfix/JB Models 1/76 Alvis Saladin, Monk Bar Models in York.  First of the year! :party:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Got an ebay win in the post today: AZ Models Spitfire Mk.18. :wub: Looks lovely on the sprues. I'll probably do it in either a desert or arctic scheme. Or maybe USAF.

Best of luck cleaning up the bits that make up the rotorhead assemblies.  I gave up on mine.

The ESCI BMW M1 I won on ebay has arrived from the US.  I've a feeling I bought that Provence Moulage Aston Martin DB7 from the same guy last year and that took about six weeks.

Club night and I was given two spitfires.  One was the Italeri abortion of a mk IX, so that was donated to a mate who likes Spitfires and isn't quite as picky - he'll reduce it to spares.  The other was the 70s snapfit Mk Ia so that's me happy.
