...Arii Mitsubishi L3M1 Nell...

Having now grokked what is in the box it seems that on this, the latest (unarmed ) reissue, Arii have opened up all the gates on the sprues and have thus included lots of extra parts for my parts box like torpedoes, bombs, machine guns and glazing for cupolas etc.

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.

A 1/72 Imai YS-11 airliner that I gave to a modelling friend DECADES ago on the grounds that I was unlikely to build it. He's slowing his modelling rate down now and he gave it back to me!

I'm thinking it would look good with a rotodome on its roof, or maybe with some Harpoons and things under the wings. Of course I could always just turn it into an Andover/748 by giving it a new paint job!  ;D

Well as it goes for about 70 now you could probably trade it in for a S&M HS-748  :thumbsup:

Which makes the one for $30 I missed by a few seconds at Expo even more galling.
Grrrrrrrrr.

The Eastern Express P-63s arrived, and I must say that I am positively surprised. Nicely detailed, just very fine, raised panel lines. Cannot say much about fit, but even that does not look bad at all!

Not in Newcastle - the Hornby concession in Fenwicks didn't have them today.

Two airfix swifts from halifax modlers world via ebay. One more on the way from the same sourse and another three coming direct from airfix.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

From AJ's (son of TAHS) this afternoon - all 1/72:
  • Hobbyboss A-7P Corsair II
  • Italeri MC.202 Folgore
  • Airfix Hs129
All for real-world builds.  The Hs129 was a steal at 1.99, and AJ's are running a 25% off counter sale discount on all Italeri kits, so it seemed rude not to get something!

Coming soon Arrived in less than 24 hours from eBay - Meng Fiat G.91 (essentially half-price).
Coming soon from Hannants - Xtradecal Fiat G.91 sheet

Isn't that a bit excessive?
