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

Am I the only one that thinks that issuing marriage licences from a department called Internal AFFAIRS is just asking for trouble?  ;)

I see your point  ;D However some would say that Internal are ok as if you have an affair with your own wife it keeps the relationship alive. It's EXTERNAL affairs that are the problem  :rolleyes:

Blimey, normal married life is complicated enough without adding MORE things to it!

Picked up a Tamiya M41 Walker Bulldog at Hobby Lobby. It was $18.00 but a 40% online coupon made it $11.50. I already started glueing up the holes in the bottom. I already have one built OOB so now I have to figure out what to do with this one. Definitely an engine upgrade.
There's someone in my head, but it's not me!

Just bought a couple of pre-painted/-fibred generic tabletop bases/modules - I'll give them a try for photography, and might tune one or two of them, e .g. with a coat of snow and some bushes or trees.

After another long search through the web, i finally managed to score a Hasegawa Limited Edition 1/48 F-16E Desert Falcon!! It was the last item on Der SockelShop's stock in Germany, and the only one i could find in any online shop!!  :drink: Oh, and the cost was around what i paid for Kinetic's F-16E! :thumbsup:
The plan for this kit is to first donate the F-16E specific parts to one of the 2 Tamiya 1/48 F-16CJ i have in the stash for a Whif, the rest of the kit will become a RW PoAF F-16AM with the ADF tail which is provided in the Skunkworks F-16XL kit. And a Kinetic 1/48 F-16F has also been ordered from a Portuguese shop... I know, more F-16s... :rolleyes: but what can i say? The sickness is becoming worse... :wacko:

 :cheers:

1/72 Frog Avro Shackleton Mk3
1/72 Airwaves EB-66C conversion
1/144 Revell An-124

As S+M Models do a range of 1/144 AWACS radomes makes sense to me to build a An-124 AWACS version.

The Lockheed Neptune looks good with twin booms and twin fins, so the same treatment could be used on the Shackleton.
