Thanks everyone! Here in NZ you get them at the local Courthouse from a Registrar...which I am, so I had to get a workmate to do it! The big day is 23 April :)

Ah, so you can't issue yourself with one ? Preaty good excuse for delay I would have thought  ;D

23rd April ; St Georges Day and Shakespeare's birthday I'm at a Golden wedding bash that day, long way to go Zac  :cheers:

Rescued from the local Post Office depot

1 x 1/72 Revell C-160 to replace my much more basic Heller one that will become part of something else, eventually...

Madame Rheged and I (30 years in December 2016) wish the KiwiZac couple well.  From our limited experience, the journey is basically a good one, but be aware that occasional minor turbulence can occur.

I can't afford it myself, but can I report an unrivalled opportunity for stash-building?

Hmm....the only prop type in the photos is a bunch of Nanchang CJ-6a - quite popular in NZ - but the Yak-18s sound good too...I want a list!

Not a model per se but you could call it a kind of kit: 1/1 Marriage Licence from Internal Affairs.

Just seen this: congratulations!  :thumbsup: ;D

Does it just snap together or is strong glue involved?  ;)

Picked up off ebsy another Fujimi F59 boxing of the British Phantom FG1 Silver Jubilee kit. cost has shot up from the ones bought late last year as the kit price increased and the exchange rate dropped  :banghead:. But still cheaper than a 2nd hand one over here and the decals appear to be far superior to the original decals provided in alll the earlier boxings. Just wish they would do the F-4K Yellow Bird or the F-4M sharks teeth to get the earlier versions

An Airfix Gloster Gladiator starter set in a charity shop - only went in for a book on Francis Walsingham!

There's still a new tool Gnat and an Aston there as well...

will need loads of after market add on's as well ;D

Now why have I got Queen's Another one bites the dust playing in my mind?

I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Mutual TLC helps, and I should imagine that your intended reckons that there's a fair bit of fettling to be done before she has you in the shape she wants you.............they usually do!.

The new Ladybird book on the Wife might come in handy https://www.waterstones.com/booklist/262226/waterstones-booksellers-books-

I've got it and all I can say is that from experience it has to be the first of a multi volume work  :rolleyes:
