...Looks like the Universe is conspiring to get me to build my zenrat-ish Lanc/Manc build ... I'm juggling whether to call it the Lanchester, the Mancaster or, just to go completely off the rails, the Warminster...

I accept no responsibility.  in fact, i am known for being irresponsible...

Where is half way between Manchester and Lancaster?

Hmmmm, it's Blackburn.  A name which is obviously taken already.  Just make sure its ugly...

Mrs z has been in Singapore for a long weekend with colleagues.  I picked her up from the airport this morning and she has brought me back a Hasegawa 1/72 Kawanishi H6K5 "Mavis" (original 1969 release - still bagged but two props have been broken over the years) and a Bandai 1/144 (deep breath) HG Build Fighters Hi-V Gundam Vrabe Tatsuya Yuuki's Mobile Suit.
What a nice lady.
And when I got home the Parcel Man was there with a box from New Zealand (JAYS hobby products) containing vac form He111 clear parts.

Anyone got any B-25/B-26/A-20 cheek/nose guns they don't need & can donate to a worthy cause? :unsure:


I've got an Airfix B-26 Marauder that I've denuded of various bits and pieces recently. If that kit has the cheek guns included you'd be welcome to them.

If you can, that'd be awesome, Kit! :thumbsup:

Otherwise, I'm fairly sure there are some aftermarket one available ... somewhere.

I've found them.  :thumbsup:

PM me your snailmail address and I'll stick them in the mail.

Or I could go Harrogate, which is near the point of an equilateral triangle with Lancaster & Manchester. It's all a bit academic, really, as I'll probably make my mind up & change it several times before I put knife to plastic, anyway.

'Spares or repairs' 1/72 Italeri AC-130A, from the photos it looks as though the fuselage and the wings are there.
 There was a proposal by the British to have theirs fitted with Rolls-Royce Tyne engines but I think it would look better with four Rolls-Royce Griffon engines.

Been pretty quiet model wise, but instead of spending all my money on new parts for my Suzuki GS 850GG, I managed to purchase a trumpeter AS-90 and Swedish S tank. Both will be Honduran. I am waiting patiently for the release of the M-109 in 72nd scale by Revell. Also awaiting a Hasegawa Kfir C2, as the italeri F-21 Lion version is big bucks.

1/72 haul from a local forum:
Airfix Stratos 4 TSR.2 MS - latter boxing with the bigger rocket. Commercial satellite launcher? What with the supplied anime girl figures, I cannot resist the double entendre to put her in Virgin Galactic livery
Hobbycraft CF-105 Arrow - somehow I must reconcile my whiffverse where this exists and RAF still buys F-101 Voodoos. Maybe it's first cancelled as per OTL, but the CIA snatches the blueprints and toolings in operation HAVE MOOSE and suitably modified it becomes a cheaper alternative for XF-108 south of the border? Or maybe for reasons it's not cancelled but the UK won't buy it, but Australia will?
Matchbox Do 28 Skyservant - PMC gunship
Revellobox T-2C/E Buckeye - post-Taliban Afghan Air Force?
Revellobox Walrus Mk.1 - upgunned for the Korean War with the rockets from Revellobox Beau, and if I still find some wrecked WW2 models in the bitz box the Vickers GO's may get replaced by M2 .50 cals
