Also did a paint restock and picked up more of the Hataka Acrylic paint sets :-



I've picked up a a few of these at shows. Found the aluminium in the Polish WWII set (4 colours  ;D) is one of the best acrylic metal colours I've tried. Needed a really good shake but very good.

Have you seen their WWII R.N. colours set Geoff ? 27 Colours  :blink: There's a page on the range in the July SAM.

Hi Chris

Yes I had spotted their RN range of colours, nicely timed to tie in with the IBG range of Hunt class destroyers. I already have the life colour sets in stock but I will try Hataka when I get back to the ship modelling

Just back from Expo.

From the traders in the big room I got a KP Piper NE1 (1/72 to be zenrat industries), some perfect plastic putty, some liquid gravity and 2 sets of RAAF roundels with kangaroos.  The decals were sold to me under the table as the RAAF who owns the copyright will not allow sets of generic roundels to be sold.  They will only allow "real" sets to build specific RW aircraft and insist on approving the designs before the sheets go up for sale.  So, black market decals!

I think I did OK at the swamp & smell as there is nothing I am looking at any thinking "Why the heck did I buy that?"
I got a 1/48 Monogram Me262 for $10.  Having built one of these ill fitting beasts I think this is overpriced but it will provide a pair of engines for the Skyliner Hovercar and the remains will go in the parts box.
The rest is all 1/72

By Hasegawa;
Republic F105 Thunderchief (moulded in black)
North American F100 Super Sabre
Grumman A6A Intruder
Mitsubishi MU-2S (moulded in yellow and black and to be zenrat industries).

By Airfix;
Short Skyvan (at last! to be zenrat industries)
Heinkel He111 H2D (dirt cheap as it is missing the canopy - for parts)
CAC CA13 Boomerang
Fairey Firefly 5
Armstrong Whitworth Seahawk
FW190 A8 (to become a tail sitter)
DHC Chipmunk (to be zenrat industries)

FROG Hawker Sea Fury

Grip Cessna 172 floatplane (to be zenrat industries)
Fred

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

Impulse buy on eBay;
1/72 Frog Gannet with vacform AEW conversion set
1/72 Mach2 Martin PBM -3/5 Mariner
 Thinking of a turboprop powered Mariner, retractable landing gear or four RR Griffon engines.

There was talk of the UK gov trying something similar here about 7-8 years ago. Registering all UK military insignia as UK gov owned trademarks.

However it was quietly watered down after a document dated some time in 1914 was unearthed in the national archives. it was pointed out that the UK did not own the copy right or trademark on the roundle and cockade. Said document was the permission from the French government for the UK to use a reversed version of their national insignia. So no prizes for guessing who owns the "rights" to that "trademark"  ;D ;D ;D

Mind you that hasnt stopped the UK gov trademarking certain fonts, logo's and military badges of more recent decent.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.
