Received today from Metro Hobbies in the city, one AZ Models 1/72 Messerschmitt Bf 109H-0 Hohenjager.

Really nice kit  :thumbsup:

As regards Air Wolf/Blue Thunder. I have no idea what any of you are talking about  :o Does that prove I'm getting old ?  ;)

Actually, I rather think that remembering the original Air Wolf/Blue Thunder tv show runs would really show your age (as is the case with me ;D)...

A Matchbox Gloster Gladiator for just EUR 3,- for the stash. I consider an inline engine.

Italeri 1/72 F-15E and a few Tamiya paint jars from the LHS.



The F-15 will eventually be converted into a Silent Eagle, much like my Isreali F-15CSE "Skia Baz"... :wacko:

Since the Italeri kit comes with them, remember to activate the outer pylons (Sta1/9)! :thumbsup:

This one will be an F-15 Silent Eagle but with the same mods done on my F-15CSE... the F-15ESE?  ;D :thumbsup:

Ordered from Airfix on Monday afternoon and delivered this morning  :thumbsup: 1/72 Red Arrows Gnat. I used the gift voucher I got for renewing my Airfix Club membership on this and it will be the recipient of the Finish markings from my SH Gnat F.1 on the basis the Fin's might have had a continuation trainer.

A solitary bottle of Micro-Sol to sort out the decals on a Mosquito torpedo fighter that I really want to have finished!

Stopped at Dean's in Owosso, and grabbed a 144th scale Revell E3-A Sentry for 5 bucks, and a Premiere DH Sea Venom FAW21 for 2 dollars ! That one had 2 sets of the white metal parts and 2 vac canopies.

It certainly needs the vacform canopies, the original injection one is a scale foot thick!  :o

Today arrived my Ace V-100 and SA-22 greyhound from models Ua. Including postage, these cost me 32 quid for both from the Ukraine, not bad if do say so myself. The ACE kit looks very nice, no tonnage of flash like models of old, and lots of nice clean details, also the sprues are now numbered, for those uf us that don't like using the force to build their kits.  Well done ACE!!. The Armoury  SA-22 is one of many many fiddly little parts/bits, and yes, lots of that dreaded photo etch. Spotted some flash on some parts but nothing drastic.....so far. No numbers on sprues, but the instructions are clear and easy to follow, which makes a nice change from other kit manufacturers in that part of the world. Awaiting the other modern wheeled fighting vehicles from ACE now. :thumbsup:

Isracast 1/72nd Suffa conversion set.

Unfortunately,

Size (of the stash) matters.
