He means Skyfox

Lost something in the translation maybe?  ;D



No not really. It is more likely a slight synaptic failure. Possibly caused by the couple of doses of fermented, red, muscle relaxant that I had after the drive to and from Perth. The return trip being partly through some really heavy hail showers.

From the Melbourne Hobby Shop that appears incapable of reconciling it's physical stock with what it's website thinks is on it's shelves, a second 1/25 AMT Meyers Manx.  This one the Elvis version.  Moulded in a gaudy yellow (unlike the first one I bought which is moulded in a gaudy translucent metalflake purple).
One will be done in camo (Gorillaz album cover).  The other might be done as Speed Buggy.

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

I will choose a path that's clear, I will choose free will.

Won off eBay 1/72 M & E Spitfire two seat conversion T8/9 and Matchbox Spitfire .
Thinking of using the conversion with a Revell 1/72 Sea Hurricane, just need to find a pair of floats.

You got that one?  Spotted it but didn't bother as I thought the price was too high for what it is.  That and I've about half a dozen anyway...

There's a few Spitfire conversion kits on eBay.
Raided the local Pound Shop and got some 2 inch clamps, 3 inch clamps and snap-bladed knives, also a nail file set as there wasn't any wet and dry paper sold.
Might try Wilko next door.

Won on ebay:

Four kits plus a Falcon vacform canopy set.  RAF naturally.
Kits? 
Ye olde Revell Tempest and F4U Corsair
Airfix old tool Spitfire mkIa
Airfix old tool Hurricane mkI

Oddly, it was the Hurricane and the canopies I was more interested in.

Ye olde Revell Tempest and F4U Corsair

Go on Lee, cross-kit them.  Bent-winged Tempest and a straight-winged Corsair.  They're not fit for much else to be honest!

Latest arrivals:

New Airfix 1/72 F-51 for a Post-War RNZAF version
Reboxed Airfix 1/72 Spitfire Vb, the old kit is still quite nice and the new transfers are even nicer

Bandai 1/72 X-Wing - smaller than I thought (it's only about as big as a Spitfire) and has 2-3 layers of parts assembled over a central 'Keel'...
overcomplicated and more parts than are required, if you ask me... oh, well :-\

Care Package from a friend with:
Tasca Panzer II Luchs
Tamiya M3 Lee and replacement turret, wheels and track
Verlinden M5 interior and turret for my M3A3 Recce conversion
Formations Late Sherman Plain Wheels and Tamiya Duckbill track, for my M36B1 conversion
the Figures from Tamiya's Sherman Assault or Frontline Breakthrough - not sure which (great; I wasn't sure how I was going to get them, without buying an unneeded Sherman)  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

And all this when I'm trying to cut down on acquisitions... now where/when have I heard that before? ;D :rolleyes: :banghead:

Cheers

I'll try and sell them for a quid each at the Northern Show in a few weeks.  I've far better Tempests and I've done the only Corsair I actually want to do.

An Italeri F4U-7, primarily for the decals, but there's always a good use for a Corsair with spare parts. And the kit is pretty good, too.

Airfix 1987 issue Banshee (Blue Print boxing) arrived via ebay today, decals are yellowed but can fix that with direct sunlight hopefully. If not may what if it.

I'll take both off you at Telford, if I may, Lee.
