two special hobby Douglas Digby 1's and a revell Gloster Meteor F4 arrive from hannants. All three were on special offer over the weekend, so went for em.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Received this week:-

Italeri 1/72nd AC-47A Chinook
Ram Model 1/72 British Phantoms F-4K/F-4M - The Prototypes, development aircraft and training flight  :thumbsup:

Excellent new sheet from Ram that replaces the markings for the Early British Phantoms replacing those iffy ones in the Fujimi Yellow Bird Boxing plus the markings from the original Hasegawa kit. No stencils as yet but a sheet is in development for the Naval Phantoms  :thumbsup:. Additional sheets are expected that will cover 892 squadron and various RAF units  ;D

South and Middle America are a great whiffing playground, esp. for warbirds with a second life...  :wacko:

Please tell us more, and where did you get them from? Big H shows nothing in a search.
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! :)

I wonder if those are resurrected Airways Vacuform kits, the variants shown in the list are exactly what you can build from them (looking at the kit I have anyway).  Might be worth keeping my eye on developments here, they're offering white metal u/c with these, which the Airways kits don't have.

Anyway, saved the link --- thanks Alastair for that   :thumbsup:

Just won an auction for a new Hasegawa 1/72 AV-8B+ Harrier II that's going to belong to the Portuguese navy or marines... :wacko:

I could be mistaken but I think the gent in question has joined this forum recently.

Cool idea.  :thumbsup:

Got myself a pair of 1:72 TOKO/Eastern Express P-63s. I saw pics of the kit's sprues, and these do not look as horrible as often described, I hope for the best. I already envision one in Middle American use... Honduras operated five of them in real life, so why not someone else? My bet is currently on Guatemala.  ;D

Would that be because of the "Little People"?
