Hobbycraft Sale items

Apparently Hobbycraft had a Black Friday sale which included Revell kits at half price. They aren't available through the website, but any that are still in the stores are are still at the sale price.

I shall go to have a look tomorrow. :thumbsup:

Just hit up the Stockport branch:

3 x Revell 1/72nd scale Hunter FGA.9s (RAF100 boxing) - 10 each  :wub:
3 x Revell 1/72nd scale DHC-6 Twin Otters - 4.75 each
Revell 1/112th scale X-Wing (Level 3 boxing) - 3
Revell 1/241st scale Millenium Falcon (Level 3 boxing) - 3
Revell 1/110th scale TIE Fighter (Level 3 boxing) - 3
Tamiya 1/35th German Field Drum set - 6
3-tier wire mesh trolley on castors - 15

Other notable things left on the shelves (not an exhaustive list and probably different in other branches):

Lancaster Mk.I/III - 10
Dambusters Lancaster - 10
1/144th Atlantis Space Shuttle - 10
Shackleton AEW-2 - 18.50
BoB Eurofighter Typhoon
Loads of cars
1/87th Big Boy locomotive - 10
1/144th Space Shuttle + B-747 - 15(?)
1/72nd B-17F and B-17G - 15ish
1/48th WWII fighters (Corsair, Fw-190, others...)
Various Ships
1/144th Concorde
Loads of other Star Wars stuff

Those nice rolling all-metal trolleys with three deep-sided, mesh-bottomed trays that IKEA want 50 for? 25 in the Hobbycraft sale (I got one last year)

Sounds worth a special trip to the city.

Fire up the Signum!  ;D

So I fired up the Signum and headed for Gloucester, along with half the population of the Forest of Dean apparently.  :o

Hobbycraft there did have an on-going Black Friday 50% sale on Revell kits, but most of them were big 1/48 or 1/32 stuff. I got a 'BoB' scheme Typhoon for 10 though plus two 'bottles' of Contacta glue, some of that bendy Tamiya tape, a new razor saw and a battery light magnifier thingie, something I've been thinking about for ages.

Do you want one of mine (at cost)? I'm unlikely to get through the six I've got now...

Do you want me to post it or hand it over at a show? If the latter, which show?

Best go for the post please, I'm not sure which shows I'll be doing next year as yet.

I turned up at Hobbycraft in Carlisle, to be told that they were "not  a participating store" and that none of their Revell material was reduced.  All very good for family Rheged's imperial treasury, but somewhat disappointing otherwise.  I'll just have to get on with building what is already in the stash.  I'd quite fancied doing a Millennium Falcon in Air Support or Transport  Command livery but since I can't, perhaps one of you might wish to take up the idea

Thought I'd convert this thread into a generic one for Hobbycraft Sale items instead of starting a new one.

Just had a look today and they are selling Revell 1/72nd Mi-28 Havocs and 1/144th B2s for 10 each. They're NOT in the kit section: they're in the CLEARANCE section.

I didn't buy either but I'll happily pick one up for anyone who wants one, as ever.
