Good grief Chris you actually had a queue at the tuckshop. At my old school, Ayr Academy, it was simply a rabble.

Prefects saw to that. They had quite a bit of leeway when it came to keeping us juniors in hand. Hated them at the time but when I became one it was a great system  ;D

Bought to support my 109 funding - there are quite a few I shall be adding to the stash but also quite a few I'll be moving on. Got to check them all out but at the moment a small sample checks out complete (though most of the Airfix are early boxings and the decals are shot). Anyway some may be appearing on here in the future so don't feel abashed about PMing an offer for anything that takes your fancy. I can only say no !

The Frog Victor should net you your money back, with the Airfix SR53 getting you a few bob into the bargain.

I'd have the Xtrakit Spitfire XII off you in a hot and know I could find some 109s somewhere for a hostage swap?

Rather disappointingly the Victor is missing the stand base, the instructions and any decals. Also it is in white plastic but on the web it always has it as grey plastic so not sure if it's the 1958 or '64 version. The SR53 is pristine.

Sounds good to me   ;D and if I say so sir, a very fortunous choice. Turns out there are two in the box though one is missing the prop blades. Also seems to be a spare canopy.   Happy to exchange for as many 109s as you think worthy.

I think the early ones were in silver plastic and the late ones in white. I sold a white one, albeit in a French issue Triang boxing for over 70 to a 'collector' in 1975 or so.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Oooooh baby:


Aside from the mildly yellowed decals, the only issue with this 1988 kit is that the last owner swapped an FGR.2 sprue with the FG.1 one so it has slotted tailplanes, otherwise everything's there. I must admit I was amazed at the size of the box...and the fuselage halves! Definitely a take-my-time project. NZ$50 plus post, with the white metal wheels and vinyl tyres still sealed in their bag.

Mrs z had to have a filling and when picking her up I asked the dentist if he had any spare tools he had finished with.
Result was a curved pick which will be great for cleaning out panel lines, scribing and that sort of thing.

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.

Lucky you!  I'm still waiting for my LHS to get them in and god knows when the post office will deliver the other one.

HMW had already sold over a dozen since they got them in on Tuesday and after mine they still had at least 4 more on the shelf.

Hannants got 3000 in and are down to less than 1000.

It isn't a limited edition kit so more will be on the way.

Well its already sold out at Hannants, I got the impression that the bulk of the production is actually due at the end of the month so should be plenty around at Telford.

Even if I got one today, don't think I could have it ready for Telford...

I had an email from Airfix today that said that, along with stocks of the Beaufighter, Whitley and Wildcat.

It says the first batch of Shackletons were sold out on pre-order. What did they expect????  :o
