Unfortunately this one only has the prop bits as the seller must've built the jet...I have a plan that involves my resin casting kit. I see the Arii quad boxing can be had for cheaper than many 1/48 prop fighters if you know where to look, talk about value for money!

The one I got for úcheap at Cosford was the same.

Bede BD5 compared to a 1/72 C-5 Galaxy  (this just happens to be my ""biggest & smallest"" 1/72 kits pic)
Had to check Wikipedia: BD-5J had a wingspan of 5,2m and Galaxy cargo hold is 5,8m wide. So if the Galaxy acted as a flying aircraft carrier the Bedes would fit in even without folding wings. The only problem would probably be that the Bede's maximum speed is barely above Galaxy's stall speed and could barely carry the pilot and fuel, let alone weapons - but that's what Whiffverse is for... ;D

No, I'm never going to build one, but the idea was just irresistible not to write down ;)

Just collected from the Post Office

Trumpeter 1/72 Su-24M Fencer D
Scale Resin 1/72 Buccaneer S1

We finally have a decent standard Fencer kit in 72nd that's readily available  :thumbsup: - More accurate than the Dragon kits with proper separate D and E boxings, and easier to build than the accurate but rare limited run Russian kit.

The Buccaneer is a much improved version of the CMK kit in better resin with clear engraving and configured as the S1 version. Will be real as part of FAA collection to go with Scimitar Tanker and Sea Vixen onboard Eagle

I would have bought that Starfighter just for the box art.  Typical Hasegawa of the period.

Some vintage FROG stuff there Chaos, and that JoHan 262 brings back some memories, I must have built one of them in 1974 or so!

Where are you finding these vintage kits from, is there some 'treasure trove' in Berlin? There's used to be a good shop just south of Templehof when I lived there in 1978 and he had a good stock of vintage stuff.
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! :)

Regards

The BD-5Js obviously need afterburners and/or the Galaxy obviously needs vectored thrust so it can fly slower... :wacko:

I walked into my LHS today and the new Trumpeter 1/72 J-10B jumped into my hand and demanded that I give the shopkeeper money!!!  Oh no!!! I had no choice.

Today arrived my Ace 2S14 Zhalo-s (sting) Basically a BTR 70 with a turret and 85 mm gun stuck on it. Designed as a tank killer but couldn't as gun was too small. Also 2 packs of armoury Russian heavy unguided heavy rockets also in 1/72nd scale. They may go on my TU-91 "Bear cub" Cartel Coin aircraft.
