I built the Amodel Yak-130, pain in the proverbial to build, but nice when done. It languishes in the planes with missing bits boxes, as loads of parts went missing during storage. Where did you get it from Martin/Geoff? I wouldn't mind one of those.

It's a new mainstream kit I picked up off eBay, but I think its in Hannants now so should be in Transport by weekend

I can see you're on a Messerschmitt kick there.  ;D ;)
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Had a nosey in a charity shop whilst dawdling around town. Come out with a 1/72nd scale Revel A-26 Invader, Airfix red stripe Handley Page Jet stream, and Vigilante, also airfix red stripe. 3 quid each for the airfix kits as they thought they might be worth something, 2 quid for the A-26. Also from Colin at Freightdog, 6 resin mirage IFR probes arrived for much cheapness, and very swift service  :thumbsup:

Mine came from ebay as well.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

I have very fond memories of that kit from way back when I was a young teenager in the 60's. Monogram are still a name that bring a smile to my face.

I see the Zvezda Yak 130 is top of Hannant's best sellers for the week
Decals my @r$e!

Where did the Rapiers come from?

A Revell D.H. Venom - actually the reboxed vintage Heller kit, but it was cheap (EUR 2,-) and I have plans for it for a conversion...
