Off eBay an Airfix Bristol 192 Belvedere in the most recent boxing.

This is to become a Royal Navy type 191 ASW version  ;)

Didn't OGL just build one of them?

Nope that was a 192 with a radome as an AEW version.

The 191 is 4ft shorter with a belly panier for a pair of Torpedoes or Depth charges in tandem plus dipping sonar and a wasp style bedstead undercarriage.

From the mystery kit sale at the Ballarat NNL (wrapped kits identified only as Automotive, Military, Aircraft, Seagoing...).

Revell 1/80 Martin B57
Revell 1/58 Honest John Missile & Transporter.

I wouldn't normally have bought either but both will provide interesting & useful whiffing materials
Fred

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

MPL 22" space 1999 Eagle
HLBS 1:48 stalwart, Saladin and V150 commando AC
and for 28mm  deadmans hand female gunfighters pack,  Bad sqiddo games, berserkers, shieldmaidens,  WW2 female Russian command pack ( officer, RT ops, and medic) , female sniper team and some SMG troops, Crooked dice, new Servalan and Travis ( this gives me 3 or 4 Servalns, so a quick poll of the collective term for them was taken, its either a Federation, or a Domination)  , new Avon and Villa, police sniper and sgt, and camera man, from sloppy Jallopy the militant miners pack and the armed cricketers pack.
very happy with the haul  :thumbsup:

Only of the engine test rig in a couple of books and the drawing in Putnams, I can work out the landing gear and the weapons bays are described in the text of a couple of books,

I just wonder how different the figures look ? I've looked at loads of figures of "Buffy"  :wub: :wub: and none of them look anything like Sarah M Geller  :banghead:

Today arrived the 2 seater Gripen from JayBee's stash reduction. Nice kit indeed, and another load of AMRAAM's to add to the stash of them, must be getting on for 100 of them by now. I think I will do this and the single seater as U.S Marine birds, as they do suit 2 tone grey schemes. OR... a wrap round 3 shades of green like I did one of my Rafales.Hmm...?

http://www.crooked-dice.co.uk/wp/product/federated-security-command/    is the new version

at the scale they are, quite good likenesses

True.  The original version seems to be the original Stephen Greif Travis from season 1.  Can't place Servalan's outfit but Season 2's "Star One" seems closest.  The new version is Servalan circa Season 2's "Weapon" with the Brian Croucher version of Travis.

Having gone through some of the options in there, there's more Blake's 7 figures, including a Season 4 Avon and Bounty Hunter Blake.  One set comes with a mini ORAC!
