There's a model shop in Monmouth???

Where is it please?
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! :)

Thanks for that!  It's not that far from me in North Herefordshire.

It certainly does, thanks, it's a sight closer than Antics in Gloucester, which is 20+ miles from me.  :thumbsup:

From the Airfix Last Chance sale:

2 x 1/76th Bedford QLT & QLD trucks
1 x 1/144th Boeing 727
1 x 1/144th Boeing 737

No definite plans, but the nice Britannia Airways logo in the 737 has got me thinking about Brits In Space....

Went to the Chattanooga contest over the weekend. Picked up some potential WHIFF's.

Pegasus Fj-1 Fury 1/72
NOVO Supermarine Attacker 1/72
Matchbox BAE Hawk 200 1/72

Now to start planning their metamorphosis.

Fleabay was hit a bit hard over the festives. Been lurking here for a little while and whiffing is calling:
Revell's 1/72 Rafale, NH90 Italieri's Gripen & OA4, Airfix Hawk & Tucano.

Rafale & Skyhawk will be in RN colours, the latter for the Cold War GB.
The others wil follow on from my Scottish Independence "yes vote" back-story, posted elsewhere on this site.

From Evil-Bay (broke my golden rule and bought from S.Korea).
Tamiya 1/72 Jaguar GR-1.  Made in Italy which makes me think it's a reboxed Italeri kit.
This is another plane I built (and wrecked) as a kid.  In this case an Airfix Jag but I can't find one of them as cheap as this.
No idea what to do with it but it has the nose moulded separately which is always useful when whiffing.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

You are correct in that thinking. Italeri have a re boxing arrangement with Tamiya that allows easier access for Italeri to the Japanese market for some of its 1/72nd aircraft kits. It also allows Tamiya to fill gaps cheaply in its own line up.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.
