From Hannants:

Hasegawa 1/72nd F-106A Delta Dart (discounted to 8)
Pavla 1/72nd MB Mk.8 ejector seat
Montex 1/72nd cockpit mask for the Hobbyboss Sea Hawk

The bang seat is going in the Sea Hawk too, since it's one that got upgraded in the late 1970s.

From Uncle Frank:

AZ NA P51C Mustang (RAF boxing)

What's it like Lee ?


Very nice.  Could do with locator pins but probably the nicest B/C yet.  Although something about the tail bothers me.  Can't put me finger on it.

From Airfix's VE Day sale:

2 x 1/72nd LCVP
2 x 1/72nd LCM + Sherman

Some if not all of those for sci-fi projects.

Also got a bunch of other stuff, but that's for buy-to-sell.

Won on eBAY,
1/72 Mig-23PD this is the one with two lift jets , Mig-21 style wings and shock cone air intakes. Looks more Mirage than a Mig.

That sounds good. Who makes it please?

I'm tracking a delivery of some Evil-Bay purchases via the Aus Post website.  Strange thing is they seem to be getting further away from me...

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.

I was after the 1/72 Grumman Tracker on eBay but lost out so I got the winning bid on the Lockheed Neptune instead. I'll see if the Neptune is a better fit with the Hawkeye Rotodome on the upper fuselage.

Encore Models 1/72 Pfalz D.III "Blue Max" - the Roden kit with Cartograf-printed decals to replicate the two machines in the 1966 film. I bought it for the decals as I already have another kit well underway, but will probably build it anyway.

And picked up yesterday, as the postie left a card saying it couldn't be delivered for "postal security reasons" even though I was watching from the lounge: Revell 1/72 Fokker D.VII (the absolutely lovely, fun and cheap old tool) and the 1/48 Fokker Dr.I (which is actually the Eduard kit so will be outstanding). All three will be NZ-registered machines, although the Fokkers will be at earlier points in their life than today.
With warm regards from Whanganui, New Zealand

I've got a couple of those: it looks like a nice kit. At least one of them might become a Fairey Delta <something> with a bigger, tailless wing and the lift jets deleted, the idea being that it's a straight fighter development of the FD.2.

Glad to know it's not just here: Royal Mail did that to me on Saturday. Heard the letterbox go, looked down the hall and saw only letters. Went to pick them up ten mins later and there's a "sorry you were out" card in the middle. No knock and no bell (checked it: it works). Got an apology today after a complaint e-mail and three very public tweets... :wacko:
