From Freightdog a pair of the Hurricane Mk I 20mm cannon pod sets (which come with some nice resin wheels with correct hubs). I know what I'm doing with one set but I've still to decide with the other.

I had a look at their website but couldn't find those listed Chris, any idea where they might be shown ?

1/72nd scale.
Airfix Lockheed F-80 shootingstar.
Heller Lockheed T-33 shootingstar.
Heller Lockheed F-94B Starfire.


Look out for something Lockheed based from OGL towers soon.  ;D :lol:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Today via the German Post, a Revell A400M Grizzly/Atlas in 1/72  :party:
Have you seen the size of the box? :o :o its huge!
You're not going to smuggle this one past SWMBO ;D oh no, how ever
If you rearrange the contents inside it might feasibly help you smuggle a couple
Of smaller kits :thumbsup:
Now what you do with this kit is March proudly up to the house (in true Hunter/Gatherer mode)
With your 'Trophy' dragging behind :thumbsup:
pausing only to let SWMBO admire the magnificent specimen that you've 'captured' you then retire to the Hobby room/Man cave to enjoy the fruits of your Hunting :cheers:

The British have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved". Soon though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross". Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the Blitz in 1940 when tea supplies ran out for three weeks

In Scotland, all in 1/72:

Revell RF-4E Phantom
PM Models TA-183 Huckebein
Italeri BAE Hawk

And from Whitby toy shop, a pot of Games Workshop Trollslayer Blood Orange, this to try out as replacement for the awful Humbrol Fluorescent Orange muck.

Colin only had a couple left which he dug out and put on the site last week because he knew I was after some. Maybe I got the last 2 ? Drop him a line

Shame on you for raiding the traders stands before the rest of us have a chance.  :blink:

hmm, OGL must have some canny scots ancestry in him somewhere. still to be in charge of the IPMS [UK] What if SIG does take a certain amount of unobtainium armour methinks. OGL has to put up with rather a lot at times,  :bow: and besides which he has to mount the odd recce mission to check on how the north Britons are doing.....  :wacko:

glad you all had a good weekend north of the border.

meanwhile well south of it, I wonder how they got on at Milton Keynes?  :tornado: :tornado:

nothing added to the stash apart from a rather good airshow ticket for ummmmmmm 13/06/2015 in north west London hard by the M40!  :wub:

Won a Revell Douglas AD-5 Skyraider auction for EUR 1,-. Hard to say no, and there's even (already) a plan for it, including major surgery and transplantations...  :wacko:

I have one, and you're dead right, it's ENORMOUS! But the best way to get one is to follow my system and get SWMBO to buy it for you as a Christmas or Birthday pressie.  :thumbsup:

As for stash increasing from the MK Show, it has to be said that a certain amount of such activity was noted on the parts of some of us manning the SIG table. One young gentleman even got a kit that was almost as big as HIM!  :o

Then there were those who bought kits after declaiming strongly that they were not going to do so, and there were those, like me, who don't buy ANYTHING.
