From the Heiden show:

- Revell 1:24 Bentley 4.5 litre blower
(to be fitted with a Merlin, of course)


I just found an Airfix 1:24 Mustang for a reasonable price on an auction site, so that's going to serve as an engine donor.

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.

Direct from Anigrand.

1/72nd scale Lockheed C-140 Jetstar.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

The nice post lady delivered this to me today:





Canuck Models recently made a package offer of one of their two sets of 1/72 CF-100 decal sheets to go with a limited run of the Astra vac form Clunk kit.

Needless to say, my resistance was next to nil for an offer like that. Due to the rarity of the kit and that nature of the offer (decals thrown in) I'll be going real world with this.

I'll probably also try to get my hands on the resin upgrade set Obscureco made for the Hobbycraft kits to save myself some scratchbuilding.

Keep forgetting to do this!

You see, i bought a couple of kits of a nice old gent, who lives in Poland, reducing his stash, and a change of interest and medium.
My polish is non existent, his English, not much better, but emails have been passing back and forth now for the last year, mostly about life in general.(thanks to google translate!)
Anyhow, the result is every 4-5 weeks, a parcel arrives. I never know what's going to be in it, but have received some nice wee gems,
and always costs the same, 20!(Including postage :thumbsup:)
So, this morning my '20 lucky bag' arrived, containing...

1/100 VEB Plasticart Tupolev Tu-20 
Novo Mustang-Night Fighter
1/72 Blackburn Buccaneer...(I assume its an eastern european repop of the frog kit?)

At some stage i should put a complete list of what he has sent me.

Cheers... Ray
