My haul from Perth:

RS Kawasaki Ki 100 High back
RS Ki 100 Low back
MPM Wellington Ic (intended as a parts donor for a Warwick)
Ursus Saro SR53
Testors Supermarine Swift K4
Falcon TF86 Sabre
Various aftermarket bits that Models for Sale were flogging cheap - largely Spifire related but also a Mosquito bulged bomb bay and a Beaufighter fin strake and radar nose.
Part started F82 - I *think* it's a Novo one going by the plastic. Might end up as an RAAF one in Korea.
A Tasman boxing of the Novo Sea Venom, the one with all the nice white metal, new vac canopy and decals.
Some etch for Spitfire PR19s

Plus some bits bought for friends:
Airfix Shorts Skyvan
Academy Me 163B Komet

ANd whilst it's not quite a kit, it's still a kit and one that I'm ecstatic to finally own:


That's the last one I needed to have a complete collection of boxed 1978 Town range Lego sets - technically, I still need two of the baseplates boxed, but the packaging for them is generic.

Only a couple from MK yesterday

AZ Model Me 109K-4. I got this because I really found a couple of the markings options really attractive, so it will be real world and I'll build it at the same time as I put their K-14 Wif together.

RS Models Blohm & Voss Ae 607. I thought it was a weird looker before I found out it was a trail dragger  :unsure: This was probably no more then a doodle in the B&V project office, indeed the drawings were only found a couple of years ago, but it will look good in late war Luftwaffe colours. Plus it comes with 4 X-4 missiles. She will probably get 2 of them and the other 2 will go on a two seater of some kind as I just feel they would have need a second seater to stand even a hint of them being succesfull.

A couple of other bits and bob's, including a couple of Yahu instrument panesl. However I was after a couple of Humbrol paints and would you believe no one at the show, as far as I could see, was stocking it ?  :-\

The Ae 607 drawings have been about for quite a while, certainly since the late 70s as it's in David Masters' German Jet Genesis.  RS did it in resin in the mid 90s - I got one from Hannants at Donnington in 1995.

Ah right. I had though I'd seem something about it before.

  RS did it in resin in the mid 90s -

Odd then that I'm quoting from their own blurb

Picked up the 1/72 Hobbycraft CF-105 Arrow from the MK show yesterday. Spotted it poking out from under one of the club tables :thumbsup:

Their blurb is clearly wrong as I did their resin kit in 1996 - the remains are somewhere in me Mam's loft.

Fantastic Plastic says RS Models initial release was in 1993, 1/72 resin kit.

Oh well. Life's way to short to wonder why  :mellow:

Looks quite a nice kit though whatever it's ancestry, although I still find the idea of a twin tailwheel design odd to say the least  :unsure:

Wifey got me one of my Grail kits, Minicraft 1/144 Dassault Mirage F1C. It'll hopefully end up Israeli.

I twisted my own arm and bought myself one of the Amodel cobalt Valkyries. Nice looking little kit it is too, just hoping I can build it with these glove puppets for hands I have at the moment.
Mine will be a militarized version, turbine engine instead of the piston engine, four possibly six blade prop I.R. suppressed exhaust, FLIR pod on the centre line rear seats removed and replaced with a fuel cell and possibly some avionics. Some very light weaponry, possibly rockets and/or hellfire missiles, and a gun pod. The aircraft will be an observation forward control aircraft for the Honduras air force.
