I have this kit too and the Bear in 1/72nd scale. Bought before my life went upside down. Doubt I will ever build them as I have nowhere big enough to work on them let alone display/ store when finished. Plus I think the Honduras/ U.S task force would be having a coronary and asking lots of questions as to how the cartel got hold of them 🤔😂

I've seen the fibreglass fuselage of an 1:72 Bear in a local shop, and it scared me. Had been years after I saw a friend build an 1:48 B-1B - and the project more or less failed there was no space to store the thing...

it's having somewhere safe to put them after building that is the main problem, I need to start doing the lottery, or at least get enough money to hire a solicitor to get money out of my house. :banghead:

Whilst currently banned from stash additions by both SWMBO and eldest daughter* I've managed
To add a Revell Spaceship two/Whiteknight two to the stash (I think it will make a fine floatplane/racer for our next GB) ;D (oh and half price doesn't cut the mustard either :rolleyes:)
*they did remodel/decorate the spare bedroom cum office into a man cave and modeling room just for me :thumbsup:
The fact that they also moved my Aircraft and train books in as well as approx half my stash may well be the reason behind the ban....
Still could be worse, they could have found the other half!
I might then be sharing the Dogs bed :o

The British have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved". Soon though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross". Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the Blitz in 1940 when tea supplies ran out for three weeks

Hehehe, LOVE it!  :thumbsup:

Wasn't built, Chris.  It is a Whiff-Panzer from the get go.  It was an attempt to use up light production capacity that Skoda had at the end of the war and find a continued use for the 38(t) chassis.

I'll still need one as an addition to my Czech armour collection (whole bunch of variants came out recently & I'm in a quandary as to which to buy for the stash). :rolleyes:

I wasn't expecting to find one this fast but I couldn't pass up the opportunity. I saved about $40 on this bad boy.  Another grail kit of mine...  :wub: :wub: :wub:

Ah, that explains it. Cheers mate  :thumbsup:

Strangely it looks "early" war rather than "late" war to me. The front of the superstructure in particular reminds me of an early Stug III, just has that feel about it.

Direct from Hornby, ordered Monday, delivered today  :thumbsup: All to be built out of the box as nice and relaxing builds whilst I'm tackling other more challenging ones.

Nakajima B5N1 Kate. I want to build the China bomber version as I built the earlier boxing as a torpedo plane.
Ju 87 B2/R2. I'm going to build the one with the snake. Yup I know it's been done a zillion times, but I haven't done it, even though I have at least 3 aftermarket sheets with it on. I just find the whole scheme attractive.
P-40B Tomahawk Mk II. Again I find the box scheme attractive.

I've built all of these in their earlier boxing's so know they go together well and besides with my club discount and free postage I couldn't say no  ;)
