Some stuff. An assortment of plastic styrene sheets. Been considering gettings some for a long while now and I'm tired of using random crap sitting around the house.  ;D  I've made it work so far, but having this instead should make future ventures easier. I also picked up some metal gear for my 1/72 Boeing 707.

1/48 Hawker Hunter Mk 6


1/48???

Are you sure you're feeling alright Chris?
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Rel. cheap ev!lbay wins: a Hasegawa 1:72 Fw 190 A-5 w/o box and a Heller 1:72 Mirage III/V + Rafale combo, the latter for just EUR 5,-. Hard to say no to that...

Also ordered an F-5 decal set directly from Leading Edge.

I think so Kit. Mind you it's going to be real world as well  ;)

I've got a few 1/48 scale kits actually and a solitary 1/32 one. The 1/32 scale one is so good I'm tempted by another  :angel:

More a credit note than a standard voucher. Nearly all retailers will issue a credit note as a "voucher" if you ask them and I just made sure that the young lady in question was aware of the availability and process  :rolleyes:

Two 1/72 Italeri Bell 206's are now on their way to me. They're the LAPD boxing but once I get them they will be RCAF/CAF. I've got two neat decal sheets for them, one has Canada Geese flying down each side on a pale blue background, and the other is a WWII commemorative scheme. Looking at the decals there's a Wellington depicted in one of the emblems. In Canadian service they're designated either CH-136 or CH-139.

Thanks to Geoff for pointing me in their direction, my searches didn't come up with anything except OH-58's.

Surprised it never really popped up over there especially with its LAPD scheme.

Yer all NESH!!!!

From the bracingly not warm Bolton Show today:

Airfix 1/72nd Phantom FGR.2
Airfix 1/72nd Canberra B(I).8
Valom 1/72nd RF-101A Voodoo - USAF markings
Valom 1/72nd RF-101A Voodoo - Taiwan AF markings
Revell 1/72nd Shackleton MR.3 (the old one)
Revell 1/72nd OH-58D Kiowa
Revell 1/76th M7 Priest
Pack of Hannants razor saws
Bottle of CA accelerator

Most of these were bargains, but the outstanding ones were the Voodoos: 2nd hand but perfect for 10 each. These kits currently retail for more than three times that on Hannants and there were traders selling them for 25 at the show. Although they're RF boxings, the sprues have the radar nose and separate cannon muzzles on them too.... :wub:

Only bought one kit at the Bolton show today. More of a stash reduction to be honest though as I sold 9 kits from the stash.
