Last month's splurge purchase. Arrived from Hong Kong in great shape! The masks arrived prior.

Small package arrived yesterday with my ebay handle on it.  Strange, all the small parcels are accounted for.  Upon opening it, I find a set of tailfins attached to the tailplanes in a dark green. They're the tail surfaces for the Fairey Hendon I acquired a few weeks back as a part built model!  The irony is that I have a set of early Whitley tail feathers I was going to cobble together a replacement!

Did I mention the Eduard Spitfire HF.VIII weekend edition I got last week?

Airfix Airbus A300B (found in a small hobby shop mostly focused on diecast cars, with a few model kits languishing in a corner, boxes noticeably faded in color).

Now you need a KB-29 to go with it. :wacko:  Or add tip tanks, paint over the bombardier's canopy, and add RAF, USAF, and French markings and camera ports for a spy bird out of RAF Sculthorpe :wacko:

Or conversely you could buy a Mach2 RB-45 kit which comes like that anyway...........

On second thoughts, perhaps not.  :banghead:
