An ex-FROG Barracuda and etched wing fold conversion kit from David (63cpe) in Holland. Very nicely packed and shipped very quickly too.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Picked up an eBay order from Argos

1 x 1/72 Airfix AV-8A should have been two so I have sent a message to the seller. This is to replace a kit that was to be one of the options out of the box as I am using a couple of my Airfix AV-8A's to make a coouple of AV-8C's one of them operated by NASA

... and a very nice kit it is too. I have built two of them.
One OOB with Microscale transfers as "Ichi Ban",  and the other, using a "12 squared" conversion kit as an A-12 GTD-21 carrier.

Whatever happened to '12 Squared'?

They did some really interesting and different stuff, my fave being the F4-X conversion kit for the IDF PR Phantoms.

Delivered last Friday but only got to go pick it up today was a replacement sprue from Special Hobby. The Spanish AH-1G i've recently bought came with one of the skids broken in half in a brand new unopened box bought from Superhobby in Poland, so i emailed Special Hobby's costumer service regarding this issue and they quickly answered asking for my address. 12 days later, the sprue containg the parts in question was delivered!
Excellent service if you ask me... :thumbsup: :thumbsup:





Also waiting for me at my parents house was the Hasegawa 1/72 X-29 I'd ordered from a Japanese seller on ebay on xmas day. :thumbsup:

An Akkura 1:72 Saab 35 Draken - a zombie version of the vintage Revell kit.
With the amount of rivets that kit has (fortunately recessed) you will probably want it for conversion fodder instead of trying to make a proper Draken B out of it (it's slightly out of scale too);  the wings could be used to build a forgotten double-delta from another manufacturer (for originality, one that's not EE Lightning or MiG-21)  ;)

I'll give it an OOB try. Draken kits are hard to find, the only decent one is IMHO the Heller kit, and this one's price is its weight in unobtainium.  :-\ So the Revell revenant from Poland will have to do.
