Just got the other two sets of 8 x F-35B in 1/700 scale, so decided to remove a pair to see what they are like. They are great, the one in STOVL mode has its vtol doors open and the engine pointed down and they have the weapons on the wing Pylons on some of them, whilst others are clean.

Just need to remove the other 22, wash them and prime them so i can see them !, and then paint them up  :blink:

I always liked the Airfix Hampden. Built it when it first came out and it was state of the art the. Obviously shows its age now now but I still have one in the stash that's slated to be Polish if I ever get around to it.

Lucky lad Zac. Looking forward to your opinion on what is reported to be a stunner. So will she be real world ?

Well as for me there was one largish box from Humbrol (via a very nice lady  ;D) which once I'd worked my way through all the foam bubbles contained, all in 1/72 -

He III
Beaufighter
Typhoon - the "PROPer" one

As I have real world builds of these kits either done or planned they will all be wiffed. Current thinking (I haven't had a drink yet !) is Italian for the He III, USN, in the Atlantic scheme, or French Indo China for the Beau, and RNZAF, instead of Corsairs, for the Typhoon

Kitbasher  a simple answer would be "full of kits"    its packed floor to ceiling, plenty of scales, manufacturers, and subjects, plus paint ( 4 possibly 5 types maybe more) plastruct, decals, aftermarket parts, and if they haven't got it in, theyre very good at getting it.   My one warning is if you suffer claustrophobia, it may be a store you visit, and ask for stuff from the door way.  It is my "go to" for things as they are released, and they have a extensive selection of older boxes
the café between it and the railway / tram station is top notch as well, the prices are low, the plates are full, and theve won multiple awards for the quality  :thumbsup:

Chris,  The closest station is Jewellery Quarter  ( either Tram or BR main line)   as you come out of the station, turn Left, and  its a couple of hundred yards along the road,   (  google maps attachment  https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Parabellumn/@52.4909727,-1.9114167,127m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!3m1!1s0x0000000000000000:0xa446eee0e5d5240b!6m1!1e1?hl=en  )  on the same side as the station,   hope it helps.  :thumbsup:
I will add there  open Thursday  Friday Saturday   11:00  -  17:30  so be aware of which day you intend to visit

From my eldest daughter (not the RAF's Best Air Traffic etc etc.) for my birthday (today.......... ;D :lol:, the Revell British Legends gift set, containing a BI/III Lancaster, a Hurricane IIc and a Spitfire Vb, all in 1/72.

I'm most impressed by the Lanc, I've never looked at the Revell one that closely before, but it has lots of detail and it's nicely moulded without the mega complications of the Airfix kit.
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! :)
