From Lidl, 2x cardboard boxes. Stash, for storage of.

These were only £1.50 each and rather neatly are the exact width for the large Revell kits like the 1/72 Hunters.
This should help organise my mess a bit better  :rolleyes:

Bought some paint from BNA Modelworld and somehow this found it's way into the package.  I hate it when that happens.   ;)

To my surprise it has an interior (although without breeches for the turret mounted machine guns).

A new Tamiya re-scribing tool.

Goodness knows where my original one has gone, nor its Olfa team-mate.  :banghead: :banghead:

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

You'll find the interior is a bit out of scale, Fred, but that's not surprising, when you consider the thickness of the plastic hull to the thickness of the real steel plating - it ain't to scale. :o

Accuracy of the interior is, also, a little dodgy but that hasn't stopped me building two of the family (Cockerill & Mecar gunned variants), being in the drawn-out-by-other-commitments process of building another (quite heavily modified) & having at least 2 more in the stash. :thumbsup:

Not a bad little kit - remember that the hull slides on from the front when putting it together, not from the top. ;)

Noted.  Thanks mate.   :thumbsup:  This might get a Police or private security make over.  Or maybe a taxi for rougher neighbourhoods.

Just received today from a seller in Poland. A Mistercraft SU-22M4 with the photo recon pod. Looks pretty nice in the box. Only thing is the exterior areas of the model parts have a slightly rough texture. I’m sure it’s to simulate matte paint. A little super fine sanding will take that down. Engraved panel lines so no problem there. A far better kit than the Hobby crap one I have in the stash.
There's someone in my head, but it's not me!
