Good score.  IME These can be hard to find.

From ebay, two sets of Space 1999 Eagle transfers.

These are self-adhesive rather than water-slide, but they seem quite thin and fine. The main thing I want from them are the Moonbase Alpha logos for something else.

With their resin rations Dio Art accurately portray all aspects of the real thing...
...including taste.

On a diet ?  ;D Is there anything you can't by in the way of resin accessories now ?

Be interested in your views on the R-R when you get it.

Gentlemen, sorry for the late reply and thank you for the tips on the PPP!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
I've recently joined the "Old Mold GB " in the Portuguese modelling forum with the Monogram 1/48 Spitfire IX and i believe that this is just the type of kit that will be perfect for me to use the PPP on. I don't want to engrave panel lines or sand away the raised detail that this kit has so it will be put to use, with attention to what you guys said. :thumbsup:

Now, back to topic, i've been bad... very bad... spent around 200€ on kits since last Monday. I've been at home recovering cause i've cracked a couple of ribs last Sunday, while working at the vineyard's anual open door event but that's a long story for another thread...  :banghead:
I'd already bought the AFV Club Saeqeh and Kinetic F-16AM this month but as i'm gonna be spending so much money on the house very soon, i can't keep on spending money on kits so, i ordered some more stuff to close my model buying season for a while. :rolleyes:
So, as i've said on an earlier post, i've ordered another AFV club kit, the 1/48 F-5E Tiger III at the same store from where the Saeqeh came from, and as that wasn't enough, i've also bought AFV's Swiss F-5E on ebay, managed to get a best offer price accepted, 10€ less than the listing price making that 31€ shipped... also bought on ebay, Academy's 1/48 KAI T-50 trainer and the 1/48 Hughes 500D TOW chopper, along with a Hobbyboss 1/72 UH-1C chopper. The Huey cost me 6,5€ shipped cause i won a 5£ voucher from ebay, supposedly for making my 145th transaction on there... i just couldn't say no to that... :rolleyes: ;D
And after reading a review of the Academy 500D chopper, i bought a CMK resin conversion set for the AH-6F/J... So now, it's the waiting game.

 :thumbsup:

Not quite a model but ...

A U-shaped desk 2100mm x 2700mm x 1800mm (maybe more J-shaped; I think those were the measurements, I'll confirm later) for the new modelling room;

(After 10 years of me taking up permanent residence over 1/4-to-1/3 of the dining table & the departure from the nest of 1 x daughter, SWMBO has finally seen the Light!)

Good quality wood veneered MDF for $80; has two drawers & an adjustable-height keyboard panel; needs some minor repairs before I put it together but they'll be done (later) today.

Bargain! :thumbsup:

The first kit for a long time, the 1/144 Roden VC10 K4 from the club raffle at the IPMS-Seattle Spring Show,
not bad for a $5 investment.

Especially at the price they are in the shops, assuming one has a shop of course..........  :thumbsup:

It's great to get your own dedicated space  :thumbsup: Means you can just pop in for the off 10/15 mins when the spirit takes you. Getting my own room completely changed the way I model.....for the better  :thumbsup:

Enjoy putting it up ; remember No Swearing  ;)
