Being the IPMS/USA Reviewer Corp shipping clerk has increased my stash a bunch but can't whiff any of it.  Or can I?

Latest in my hands is the new Zoukei-Mura Ho-229.

The kit comes with both 72nd and 1/144th scale kits.  I sent the smaller one on to the 1st VP as he likes that scale and kept the 72nd one for myself.
If you have ever seen their large scale kits with all the internals, the 72nd one has the same.  Really need to think on whether I want to build to display the internals or just put it all together and do a scheme for the outside.

TBH, the only real reason to get the 72nd ZM Ho 229 is the internal detail which IMO isn't as good as everyone seems to be raving about.  Unless you *really* want one open, you're better off with the Revell kit. 

In any case, they're only applicable to the V3 prototype - the production version would have had a revised, deeper and more blended underside with revised u/c doors.

This lot arrived today:

1 x Academy 1/35 USMC Bell AH-1Z Viper "Shark Mouth" Helicopter (AC 12127)
1 x MAIM 1/35 Card Players (2 resin figures w/sticker) (MAIM35653)
1 x Testors Glosscote Lacquer (1-3/4 fl. oz. / 51.7ml) (TES-TT1161)
1 x Thunder Model 1/35 British Scammell Pioneer R100 Artillery Tractor (TDM-35202)
1 x LZ Models 1/35 Scammell Pioneer Artillery/Recovery Tractor Wheels for Thunder Model kits (6pcs) (LZ35462)
1 x Eduard 1/48 AIM-9B Sidewinder for Eduard kit (ED 648028)
1 x Eduard 1/48 AIM-9D Sidewinder Short-Range Air-to-Air Missiles (4pcs) (ED 648156)

And I went to the local ToyWorld & bought a 1/72 Airfix B-25 C/D to be whiffed into a high-speed bomber, similar to the Mosquito concept (idea courtesy of taiidantomcat over on BtS).

Have to say that all 3 kits look brilliant in the box. Crisp, flash-free moulding, nicely done panel lines & good details.

The Sidewinders are typical Eduard excellence.

The MAiM figure set comes with 2 figures which look slightly out of proportion (legs look a bit too long & heads look a bit too small) but still very usable, also comes with a stack of 2 tyres, a tree stump, 3 plastic drink crates but only 10 clear resin bottles to go in them, a card table & pre-cut self-adhesive decals for the cards, bottles & crates.
Has a life outside of What-If & wishes it would stop interfering!

You'll need a pile of sanding paper for that F-35A too Nils, the raised panel lines on it are horrendous ---

Just picked up from the post office,  via the bay of evil.
Italeri  RB-66 Destroyer,  this will be a maritime patrol bomber  with a pair of Bristol  Olympus  engines  wing mounted  fuel tanks and possibly some  offensive  weapons  fitted  underneath the wings  also.  Thinking of either  a pair of scratch  build  prototype  anti ship missiles,  or some  racks with heavy  individual rockets on.  I  have  some  of the ones that are supplied  with the airfix  skyraider that should  do the job. It  might  get some  cannons  in the front  fuselage  too.
Also  an Airfix  Harrier gr1,  got this at a reasonable price too, as was the destroyer. This might  be a weapons  test bed aircraft.

That B-66 is a nice kit Chris, surprisingly large too, and goes together well.  :thumbsup:

Use STRONG glue on the landing gear though, it's a strange shape.
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! :)

Cheers  Kit,
I built the old issue  of it in the 90's, converted it into a  skywarrior, with refueling  pods under the wings,  and  in navy  Strike school markings.  Unfortunately it  didn survive.  I can't  remember how it went  together  though. I shall take  your advice,  and probably use cyano glue  on the landing gear.

Popped over to Hannants this afternoon. Haven't been there for a couple of years (last time they were closed). The whole area has changed massively since I first went there in the mid-90s to the RAF Museum. Lots of new apartment blocks and streets with aviation names.
I stopped to visit the supermarket on Bristol Avenue and the four newest blocks were named: Buccaneer Court, Jaguar Court, Panavia Court and CASA Court  :-\ 
I get the first two, Panavia is a stretch for Hendon but CASA?  :unsure:   Civil Aviation Safety Authority? Construcciones AeronŠuticas SA?


Came back with a pot of Xtracrylix Red Arrows Red. It is red.  ;D

On the second-hand shelf looking very lonely was a Matchbox Challenger tank. I gave it a new home. The artwork reminds me of going to Beatties or Woolworths as a kid.

Almost  forgot  abou3 this addition to the  RAF  effort. My Valom Twin Pioneer  CC.mk1 arrived today,  not  had a proper  look at it yet,  but  hopefully it will go together well, and  take  pride of place  on the shelf  with  the other  stuff.
