I popped into my local Home Bargains just to make sure that I had all that I of Lee could want from there. Very little on the shelves that was not The Cutty Sark, HMS Victory or WWII Paratroopers other than a couple of Bf 109 E-7's and a Gladiator Mk 1.

Came home with a box of 1/32 scale SAS figures

Lucky you!!  Popped into Carlisle HB when I was there last week.  23 (yes, twenty three) fountains and one damaged Cutty Sark. Not a life enhancing choice.

New at my stash.



That A wing kit is great, you will love building it.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

<...> as for the Tiffie ? <...>

Weren't you just wonderin' what to do with some surplus Dominican markings?  :wacko:

Nice thought! There'd also be a number of neat paint options to go with DomRep markings.

Direct from Airfix. 1/72 early version of the Kate.

Fancy the Pearl Harbour torpedo bomber option having built the late version as a bomber
