It's alright, though I'd rather be back by the sea. I really miss it. But means to an end, etc. I spend half my time in Leicester anyway, as that's where all my placements are. Will very likely move back down to the coast when I qualify.
Some of my models can be found on my Flickr album >>>HERE<<<

Very generous Jon.

I can remember those old Heller sailing ships from years ago. Fond memories of dad trying to help me with the rigging  :thumbsup:

Was that perhaps on Ebay? I just sold one from my stash there...

Who the devil are 'Orange Model'?

I can't find them anywhere and Google just buries me in sites about a Canadian fashion model agency.....
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! :)

Orange model F-35C kit

Follow the link Kit, thats where mine and Geoff's examples came from
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Never heard of them before but it sure looks good. LOVE the little tug thingie.  :thumbsup:

Were you stung by the UK Border Agency bastards with it?

Hi Kit, this is their site http://www.orangehobby.com/  I bought it from daiyee_cn1 ebay seller from china. A bit expensive at 35€, they said it was free shipping but i think the price covers it. It was actually cheap as a Tamiya 1/72 F-16CJ costs around 37€ here in Portugal and i'm pretty sure that this one would/will cost more than that. After all this is the only kit of the F-35C in 1/72 that i know of and it is my favourite version of this airplane so i had to make the effort...  :wacko:

hmm, much to my surprise airfix have re-popped their ancient 1/72 Halifax BIII with new decals and naturally I have a copy added to my stash.  ;D
