My second 72nd Eduard Spitfire "Aussie Eight" set and some Aeromaster RAAF Spitfire mk VIII decals via ebay.


I also nabbed a Sword Spitfire 16 international boxing on ebay a few days back.

From BNA model world on the interweb;

1/72 Academy MiG 27D which i've already ripped into for the Sov GB.  Not a particularly brilliant kit from what i've put together so far but worth every one of its eleven dollars.
1/48 Hobby Boss T34/85 "flattened turret" (whatever that means!).  I bought this as I wanted the tracks and suspension for a scaleorama project.  I chose it based on it being the cheapest tank of around the correct size on the website.  However, having looked in the box to find it has full interior detail (including an engine) i'm starting to think its too good to kitbash and I may have to build it mostly OOB (unlike cars and planes I have no particularly strong feelings about armour scales).

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

Arrived this afternoon, 2 JB M113 A.C.A.V's both were 5.99 plus postage, so going to be used as parts fodder, or turned into a specialist vehicle of some sorts.That involves the use of my fret saw  :wacko: :wacko:

Thanks to Bungle a 1/72 Monogram B-52D , wings built. I 've removed the engines as two pairs will be fitted to the Revell 1/72 Airbus
A400M Grizzly/Atlas. The Anigrand Martin SeaMaster engines will be used instead above the wings, I might be able to use the Mach2 engines as well on this PB-52D.

Managed to pick up a cheap Trumpeter 1/700 Slava off eBay, so this might become one of the different proposals for the missile cruiser I found in the 'Alternative' book on Soviet Warship projects  :thumbsup:

Off ebay:

Fujimi Spitfire FRXIVe lowback

Kora Fw Ta 152S
Kora Fw Ta 152H recon version
Kora Fw Ta 152B-5 attack fighter (new wing)
Kora Bf 109 G-12/AS

The Ta 152s are all the superb Aoshima kit with lots of new resin goodies. The 109 is the AZ kit.  Czech markings for that one, I think.  If it includes a spare canopy, it may be possible to copy some of the parts to upgrade the Revell G10 into a spare two seater.

2 x Pavla Avia S199 canopies - both Erla and the later blown type are included, the latter being the one I need.

I'd say that decal sheet has one of the highest, if not THE highest whiffing potential to cost ratio of any decal sheet :o

Kora Fw Ta 152S
Kora Fw Ta 152H recon version
Kora Fw Ta 152B-5 attack fighter (new wing)


Interested to see what you do with these.

I've seen a few of these Kora "upgraded" kits on the Big H Website and wondered if they were worth the extra cost, as sometimes Kora can be on the pricey side. I'd value your opinion mate.

Decals my @r$e!

Very restrained day at South Cheshire Militaire (aka the Crewe-but-in-Nantwich show):

Revell 1/72nd Arado AR 234 C-3 plus E 381

The AR 234 is a four-engined version and the E 381 is a tiny prone-pilot rocket interceptor designed to be carried under the AR 234 and released close to a bomber formation. The kit also incudes some extra unused goodies relating to other versions, such as two cameras, a rocket-torpedo, four bombs and two drop tanks.

I'm thinking the E 381 would make a neat recce drone....
