A cheap Revell 1:144 B-2 in a damaged box arrived yesterday - donation fodder for a Frankenstein creation...  :wacko:

Vie eBay, an Aeroclub 1/72 Mosquito B.35 bulged bomb bay. Cheap and it arrived quicker from Australia than many items I've bought from within NZ!

Not so much a stash addition as more space to put the stash: 9 m of shelf space in the form of Lundia modular shelving. High time, as my bookcase has double rows of books on most shelves and I ran out of space to put, well, anything. Stuff, including new stash additions has been accumulating on the floor for a while now.

I've also ordered a new set of drawers to put all my tools etc.

From Uncle Frank:

KP Spitfire Mk 9: Prague issue - 3 x AZ Spit 9s, decals for 21(!) Czech aircraft.  All for the same price as the AZ Spit 9 Joypack, plus 3 new sprues (guns, wingtips and slipper tank).  Result!  Need to stash a few more of these.

Shed loads of Model/Xtradecal RAF Markings and codes.  Black, Sky, MSG.

Looked at some cabinets a few weeks back.  Nice glass fronts, shelves, cabinet at the base.  Need to check the sizes and then I'll nab them.

Just shot a pair of Dragon 1:72 Soviet aircraft weapon sets for EUR 5,-. You never know, and the Cold War GB is coming soon...  :rolleyes:

Found an Aoshima 1:72 Ki-100 and could persuade the seller to let it go for just EUR 12,-.
Might receive a new engine (yes, a Jumo 213 with an annular radiator).

Might be easier to convert the Hasegawa Ki 61.  Better base kit if the Aoshima one is the nasty 60s tooling.

I succumbed and picked up a 1/72 Italeri Mig 37 Ferret today.
I don't like the nose so a spot of rhinoplasty will be in order.

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

Off eBay all in 1/72 scale;
Revell EH-101 Merlin HM.1
Revell Sea King Mk41
Fujimi Kaman YSH-2E LAMPS Mk2
Starfix HH-3 Jolly Green Giant

I'm going to use the Sea King Mk41 as a donor for the Sea King ASaC.7/AEW using Airfix parts and FreightDog resin radome.

The Jolly Green Giant to get tiger stripes and the Royal Navy make over.

1/72 Modelsvit Tupolev Tu-91 'Boot' yes it's ugly but that's what appeals to me.

The Tu-91 has alot of appeal and whiff potential, and i'll certainly get one although i decided to wait for it to come into stock in the UK in the new year.
