Just won an Airfix 1/72 Rotodyne, thinking something similar to the Chinook or a maritime version.
1/72 MH-47E
1/72 BAe FA2 Sea Harrier
1/72 BAe Hawk not red arrows decals

Wandered into Leading Edge Hobbies in Kingston, and happened upon the new Airfix defiant. Procured for $13.99 + tax. Got it home, fondled the plastic for a while... no decals. Airfix, I will be contacting you shortly.

It's a bigger box than I was expecting. This is the newest reissue.
With warm regards from Whanganui, New Zealand

They've corrected the spelling.  The photo i was looking at on HLJ says "SILVER JUNBILEE".

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.

Fujimi always had some splendid box art on their kits, I can almost HEAR those twin Spey's howling in that pic!  :thumbsup:
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! :)

had part of my Northstar order arrive today,  the rest will come when the nickstarter has finished
so ( all 28mm lead)  a giant toad and frost leopard,  a pack of wolves,  2 young fire elementalists ( if they should get too cold they be Frozen), an Amazon ( greek dress, helm and spear).  Pirate captain Crowe, arr jim lad, and Lichfield tony and his dog.  and to start my Baroness Marion du Bellem warband, the Darksword Cersti Lanister.
It looks as though the Nickstarter for the Thaw of the lich king, frostgrave supplement is going like stink, the initial 3 spend goles are past so ill be getting at least for free a Templar figure, a 5 man basic plastic troops sprue, and a dark cauldron resin mini, with the distinct possibility of further freebees to come. 
so happy here.

ohh and Zac  what scale is that Phantom?

Those Fuji Phantoms are 72nd scale.

My bro was heading to the LHS today and grabbed that new Canuck Models BoB CF-18 kit, but he asked me if I needed anything. I now have the 3 main colours to do my German aeros in the easiest BoB colour scheme I could find  :thumbsup:

Yup there are some Luftwaffe schemes in the BoB that are doable without an airbrush. They start getting more difficult for us brush painters during it  :rolleyes:. I've found a nice, slightly unusual 110 scheme that avoids mottle  :thumbsup:

So I went round to a friend's place and we went through a minor STP (Stash Transfer Procedure).

All 1/72:

A second Airfix Gazelle for either a Blue Thunder conversion or an Optica-Like conversion (depends which I want to start first)
Hasegawa F4U Corsair to get a Turboprop nose for a Post-war COIN whif
KP Spitfire MkIX for a real world build, 485 Sqn probably - or Colin Grey, not sure yet which.

Received the order of 1/32 slot car bodies from Patto's Place, so I can now get some of those underway (in time) and get some more OZ muscle in the collection.

Cheers
