1/200 Northrop B-2 & F-117
This the old Dragon set (reboxed by Italeri and Zhengdefu) where the F-117 is horribly misshapen? Might make a good UAV and the B-2 could be in turn scale-o-rama'd into a 1/72 stealth prototype.

Bought another 1/72 BV222 Viking flying boat.
The plan is to use the Airfix BAe Nimrod lower wing section on the roof of the Viking, this creating a jet powered flying boat. I'll remove the guns and turn it back into an airliner.

An Italeri 1/72 B-58 Hustler for my birthday from my grandsons.  :thumbsup:

My eldest daughter, who knows all about my Whiffing tendencies, said 'What will you do with that then?' to which my youngest grandson replied 'Probably paint it in RAF camouflage and 617 Sqdn. markings!'  ;D

He's got me sussed out alright.  ;) ;D
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 small lottery win and a 30% off all Hornby sale at Fenwicks is a toxic and expensive combination!
 
1 AW Whitley (MR/Airliner)
6 Firedog Beaufighters
1 Jet Provost T3

Just under 110!

It may seem an expensive combination, but just think of the hours and hours of pleasure that you will have dealing with these eight items! Let's say each takes you 25 hours of modelling time.......that's 55p an hour; and what other lasting pleasures could you buy at that price?

Congratulations on the lottery win.

It wasn't that big a win - only four numbers and just enough to buy that little lot.

Lots of spare torpedos and rockets in the Beau's to enhance other kits.

Used a discount and got me a 1/72 Raptor for $14 and spent the other $10 of my gift card on some paints and some paint brushes (and tax).  10/0, 5/0, 3/0, and 0/0 size brushes to use on canopies and such.  $5 for the set, seem nice but Chinese made... the other option was same sizes and stuff but "sable hair" opposed to "taklon" which these are. I have no clue what all that means. The Taklon ones looked better...  Me new paints are two colors of really light grey, one of which seems perfect for light gull grey. Also got a plain ol' white and black bottle, all acrylics which are my favorite paints.  :lol:

What to do with this Raptor!?  I've been wanting one for awhile but it was down the list quite a ways..   Ethiopia Air Force?  Antarctica Air Force?  Easter Island Air Force?  OOB? Dominos Delivery Plane? Oklahoma Highway Patrol?  Put a radial engine on the front and paint it to look like wood?

The Works have some Aifix in their sale. I got Battle of Britain and Pearl Harbour 75th anniversary sets for 20 and 15. Works out at half Airfix price. The Pearl Harbour set is currently out of stock on the Airfix site.

Probably the last acquisition of 2016.

1/24 Aoshima Asurada AKF-0/G Future GPX Cyber Formula GPX.
1/72 Fujimi Mitsubishi A5M4 Hayabusa

The (approx 1/6 scale) Bandi Pikachu kit is for Mrs z

Fred

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

How big (or small) is the Pikachu model?  :blink: I have some 1:6 figure models at home, and I wonder how the ...thing's relative size might be?

That Pikachu is the first kit my wife ever built! The ears wiggle when you move the head. He's not too big.
