A Tamiya 1:72 Birdcage F4U - intended to be built OOB, but in a "Yellow Wings" livery. Should look interesting.

Not too much of a stretch as the prototype was yellow winged.

Yup. Just with some service markings, should look pretty.  :mellow:

Nice kit and idea. I think I've seen photo's of one of the prototypes in a Yellow Wings scheme ? Just checked and it had yellow wings but an overall natural metal body

Got home from a couple of days at my girlfriends to find that I had

From ebay

1 x 1/84 TASMAN Models Decals V4807 which has two F4H-1 prototypes for "Project Top Flight" and "Sageburner", markings for an F/A 18A of RAAF 3 Squadron and markings for a Mirage IIID of 2 OCU Royal Australian Air Force. I really wanted to get set V7205 which does the same stuff in 1/72 but this set will do for now.

also received from Hannants

1 x 1/72 Transport Wings Shackleton MR.3 Phase 3 conversion set.

Came home from work to find a 1/72 Academy Boeing C-97 Stratofreighter sitting on the doorstep.
This will either be Vixen 03 (first Clive Cussler book I read), zenrat industries or another civilian scheme.
Or, maybe it could be an Aeroflot cargo version of the Tu4...

So you have random deliveries of plastic models around your parts? I wish we had that kind if service around here!
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! :)

A box of 1/48 Northrop F-89D parts arrived at home yesterday, and at work after Court there was a bagged AMT 1/48 P-40F/L waiting for me. Lovely!
With warm regards from Whanganui, New Zealand

I wish.  It was an Evil-Bay win at a very satisfactory low price.  The odd thing was although Mrs z was in as she was chucking a sicky my parcel man didn't ring the bell but just left it.
Still, it meant I got it into the stash without having to answer any questions.
