Just arrived - Hasegawa 1/72 US Pilots & Ground Crew.
This gives me another Chevrolet crew van which I feel might get a Post Office paint job.

Plus, at the post office waiting to be picked up are some very tiny drill bits and polishing swabs.

After 15 years of faithful duty, my engraving tool (from Aldi, cheap but with a very good Mabucchi motor and variable speed) died yesterday evening while cutting through my current EE Lightning/Su-17 kitbash for the Cold War GB.
R.I.P.  :-\

Anyway, I was lucky and happy to find a used specimen of this tool/set on ebay, I hope it is a worthy replacement.

I find it quite hard to part with old tools after they've given years of service even after they are completely knackered. Just get attached to them for some reason ?

Attached to them? What are you, some kind of cyborg?  :rolleyes:

Mind you, that would explain Dizzy's rapid speed of model building  ;D

Yes!  With at least 4 arms, 2 of which have rotating tool carriers like a multi axis machining centre.

Dizzy, and the rest of us, have been assimilated for YEARS! 44 of them in my case.......
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! :)

But to the more mundane aspects of this thread.....
From Tiger Hobbies

Fujimi 1/144 B-29 Superfortress with their extra transfer sheet of RAF Washington B! markings.

I used to think that this kit was a Fujimi re-pop of the old Crown/Minicraft kit.
NOT SO! This is a much better rendition of a B-29. Plus you get a full bomb load plus bomb racks for the bomb bay, the two Atomic Bombs, and the re-fuelling boom parts for a KB-29.
