Oh great.......I picked up one of those for a silly price when MZ closed down.....it's the boxing with 'Gleed's' markings.....clipped wing.......think there are three options in it.......my son Max is obsessed at the moment with Red tail mustangs after watching the film.....I missed out on the 1/24 Airfix boxing for 30 on their black friday sale........but he has a 1/72 one to build......
BODY,BODY....HEAD..!!!!

Mine is in 303 Sqdn markings, one of the Polish fighter squadrons, and it's AB910, still flying with the BoB Memorial Flight to this day.

Oddly enough I'd already built the same aircraft in 1/72 years and years ago.  ;D
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! :)

the last kit I bought before xmas was....

the new 1/35 roadblock set and modern [gulf war 2] US soldiers by italeri, though the figures are a re-pop of a MB set I already have.

mind you my brother in law did get me a china mug with the artwork for the 1/48 airfix spitfire XII on it and bizarrely it has an original
airfix logo at the bottom of the mug on the inside!!!!!!!  :rolleyes:

There was a great show on BBC2 last night about Barry Sheene, hosted by Vic Reeves aka Jim Moir. Great telling of his story and the 1979 race with Kenny Roberts where Barry 'waved' with two fingers at Kenny while racing at 100mph!

quite possibly the last kits to arrive here before the new year.

a pair of new tool Airfix Bristol Blenheim IVF via an Ebay trader in Frome.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Last delivery of the year.  A Hobby Boss 1/35 AAVR-7A1 Assault Amphibian Vehicle Recovery.
I will be robbing it of its crane & winch which will be donated to the Meng D9 Armoured Dozer i am whiffing.  The rest will go on the "awaiting whiffinsperation" pile.
