Coming from KiwiZac:

1 x   AFV Club 1/35 RAAC Australian Centurion Mk.5/1 Vietnam War (AFV-AF35100) plus after-market mantlet cover & paint
1 x   Academy 1/35 M3 Stuart 'Honey' British Version (AC 13270)

These arrived today & right happy I am! ;D

Now I just hope that the kit I sent Zac arrives in as good condition because I was a bit rushed to get it off during work hours & didn't package it half as well as he did mine. :-\

It would appear that I've won yet another KP Spitfire mk Ib on ebay.

I also won a pair of Frog Meteor F8s as part of a trio of RAF jet fighter wrecks - the third is an F104...

FROG F8s?  :o

Jeepers, I've not seen one of those since the late 70s!

That sounds cool Lee, gotta love an F.8 and I do enjoy a Frog or two.

Now I just hope that the kit I sent Zac arrives in as good condition because I was a bit rushed to get it off during work hours & didn't package it half as well as he did mine. :-\
All is well in the land of Zac: one Academy 1/72 F/A-18A Hornet "Australian/Canadian/Spanish Hornet" sits on my desk waiting to be taken home  :thumbsup:

A trip to LHS (all 1/72):
Academy A-10A Thunderbolt II -- Luftwaffe in the 1980's
Academy F-117A Nighthawk -- non-whiffed (Heller's offering in The Stash is destined to become the A/F-117X SeaHawk instead)
Hasegawa B-47E Stratojet (ARDC boxing) -- SEA camo with Black undersides, better to use a bird soon destined for Boneyard dropping WW2 surplus ordnance for striking "suspected truck parks" rather than the premier nuclear deterrent dropping latest conventional bombs (ie. B-52 and Mark 80 series)

Today a parcel from KiwiZac arrived.
It contained an Airfix 1/72 De Havilland Heron which may be re-engined with Jumo 213s if I can get hold of another old mould Airfix He 111.
I always forget how they used to fit the parts into much smaller boxes back then.

That doesn't count the infamous original Airfix Banshee, which was hidden in one corner of an ENORMOUS box!

A Heller 1:72 He 112B; found hints in literature that there had been a Hungarian project/prototype with an indigenous radial engine - should be feasible in hardware form, and be a nice, whiffy project.

From Uncle Frank:
Cyber-Hobby Sea Vixen FAW2 - I've also got a resin replacement nose on order.  I want a Sea Vixen that is a relatively easy build and looks up to date.  IIRC, I'll need some new bang seats for it as teh ones in it look 144th scale!

Hobbycraft Canadair Tutor - I'm thinking New Zealand for this one, instead of their Strikemasters.

ZILLIONS more 8 mm turquoise beads after a trip to a Hobbycraft today.

As I had to buy an entire pot full of the things, and I collected every single one they had of the 8 mm ones, I've also got loads more of other sizes and other colours too Goodness knows where they'll end up, but I think Mrs_PR19's jewellery making friend is about to increase HER stash as well!  :o

The Sea Vixen is pretty nice just needs the correct sized ejector seats and the pointy resin nose as the kit one is a little blunt.

For the Tutor have a look at Jon's recent post on a attack version with the twin engines

Can't remember the name, but I've a resin kit of it somewhere.  Nice casting too.
