If you can find one the old FROG S6B is much better than the Airfix one. They show up on eBay now and then.

IIRC, it's still available in an Eastern Express/ARK box.

From Shapeways, five 1/72 Allied 10ft Dinghies.

http://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php?action=post2;board=76

These are lovely and when I get paid next i'll order a couple of rubber dinghies from them.

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

I will choose a path that's clear, I will choose free will.

A lady from Hermes has just delivered to me an Airfix Gloster Javelin in pristine condition.  Thanks Bungle, it was superbly packaged and will be next on the bench once I've cleared off a 1:1200 scale Revell Titanic, currently undergoing treatment as HM Armed Transport Oceanic  and half way through WW1 dazzle painting.

Received today from the Big yellow H

2 x 1/72 AMK Kfir C2/C7 kits

1 x 1/72 Aztec Models 48/72 - 053 Dazzling Kfir's decal sheet.

I see a future for me that involves lots of Kfir building in it as I already have seven Hasegawa kits of the C2  :thumbsup:

We'll have enough Stalwarts amongst us to have a 'Stolly GB' before much longer.

Fred Zenrat would do one in pink with spoilers front and rear, and Thomas Dizzy would build one in a day or less I expect.  ;D ;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! :)

Good thing it's clinker-built, rather than carvel-built.  ;D  :thumbsup:

You don't want that old stuff, you should have a snoot for the new kit of the Kfir :-

https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/AMK86002
Out now at Hannants at a reasonable price  :thumbsup:
So true as I got notification that it was in so I ordered one two along with some more exotic markings for my other Kfir's.

Just two?  :wacko:
