From the IPMS meeting last night;

an Academy 1/72 Bronco - for an idea on the discussion thread here - another to come, for another idea... well, you get the idea (groan)

a set of RNZAF WW2 Pacific roundels for the A-4 commemorative scheme model
(now I only have to get the things to conform over all those little spikes on the wings...)

Some Vallejo Acrylic paints - lovely to work with; brush smoothly, level out well and dry quickly. The second coat was more to touch up various thin spots, rather than a required overall coverage.
I will be investigating more of these in future...

Cheers

Won on ebay:

AKI Blackburn Firebrand.  Finally got one!

That's a good price, And I like the margin by which you won it with.  ;D

I take it you were bidding on it too?  Sorry about that - the last one that popped up was won by another member of this parish, Bungle - and he outbid me, so hopefully you'll get the next one!

Not sure how much the current CMR Firebrand is but it's not far off what I paid for the AKI one.


I did not bid on it (I didn't know it there won one on auction) but I am please that you got it for a great price and you that you won one it by such a small margin. If I do get one, it will most likely be one of the two CMR kits. I just have not got a good solid idea yet on how to WHIF it.

Awwwwww man I want to see THAT!

For me the Tamiya 1/35 Velociraptors arrived, enough bits supplied for six differently-posed dinos. Now all I need is the motorcycle.

Zac - PM me and I'll e-mail you a couple shots when I finish it. (don't have a Bucket-type account - and don't want one)

Have you seen the old tank model where the guy used 'Raptor heads on 1/35 bodies? Quite different!

Cheers

I think I have! Slightly less disturbing than the "Velociraptor pinups" I found on Etsy last night  :blink: ....the things that titillate some folks are beyond me! These little guys will remain as traditional raptors.

I think that's a wise choice.

Been looking for this one for some time, Revell 1/72 Northrop F-5B from Racer's Heaven in the U.S. Very nice kit, they should do an E/N and F variant with this quality. :thumbsup:

Some of the my shopping frenzy arrived today, from the UK shop Model Hobbies, 1/72 AZ Shenyang F.5 and Revell F-4F Phantom, from Skyblue Hobby, in Japan, the Tamiya 1/72 F-16CJ with weapons. Also from the UK, this one from a private seller comes a Hasegawa 1/72 Jaguar Mk.1A, and from France's Bassin Maquette came a Heller Saab JA37 Viggen. Last one, from the US, an old bagged Matchbox Alpha jet.

Managed to lay my paws on the Revell F-111 Tactical Fighter (TFX) kit optional noses and wings from ebay :thumbsup: For an F-111K, is that long nose & short wings or vice versa?

F-111K had a long nose and short wings despite what the majority of people say.
