Today  arrived  an airfix  folland gnat  that I  got for anfiver from someone on Facebook.  Very old kit, bagged  red stripe packaging a bit scruffy  but the kit seems ok, not bad for a fiver.  Also from Japan  a Hasegawa  weapons set  4 for much  cheapness,  even  including the  postage  it was a lot cheaper  than buying  from anyone on Ebay.  Tjis has some  1960's  ordnance  I  need for my weapons testing establishment  aircraft.

From an Evil-Bayer in Japan for an acceptable price.
Ginga Frances by Fred Maillardet, on Flickr
It contains canopy masks - something i've never had in a Hasegawa kit before.
It's a limited edition tie in with a Manga by Leiji Matsumoto but it was also the cheapest Ginga on Evil-Bay when I went looking for one.

Never seen that boxing before. As a matter of interest what type of material are the masks made from ?

Today arrived the evil that is the eduard aim-9b 's.  The photo  etch didn't bget a look in as rhe rear fins on them are transparent they are that thin. Going to  have  to be careful with them.  Also a much  cheapness  revell repoped monogram  f-4 s. I  know that I have  too many phantoms,  but ot was cheap, detail is a bit iffy, but it will be getting  cut up no doubt,  and  serve the RAF, or possibly  the Honduras airforce.  Also,  an airfix  F-105f the two seat version,  I built one  as a kid so the nostalgia  kicked in again
 This will be  a loan aircraft  to the  RAF for evaluation,  and if any good  will serve  in Germany, carrying  nuclear  bombs.  This will be in a 1960's  camouflage scheme,  so possibly  a Canberra  squadron will have  it.

I haven't opened the bag but it looks to be the same stuff eduard use.  I've had some very poor paper ones in the past on japanese car kits.  They don't have any stretch and don't come off the windscreens easilly when you have finished.

Or howabout something like the Pat Clancy Special, a six-wheel Offy-powered Kurtis based oddball.  ;D

So... after the "Engines - More or Less GB" a "Wheels - More or Less GB"?  :wacko:

<...>
1:35 AFV club M35A1 gun truck, for the 50 cal mount

Oh, good thinking!  :thumbsup: I've been on the look-out for the Dragon M45/M55 quad-mount for a while now. Could kick myself for not getting any when they were cheap and plentiful.  :banghead:

What are you going to put the turret on?

<....> revell repoped monogram  f-4 s. I  know that I have  too many phantoms,  <...>

That's impossible.

Spending spree on evilBay. All by Special Hobby, all in 1/72.

Curtiss P-40K-1/-5 Warhawk "Short fuselage" - real world. Most likely the shark-mouthed one flying in China.
Dassault Mirage F.1C/C-200 - maybe real world, but some neat whiffing options there. RAF with Skyflashs and Sidewinders? Italian? Belgian?
Dassault Mirage F.1EQ/ED. Two of these. One definitely an Iraqi aircraft, the other not sure....
Douglas Boston Mk. III "Intruder" - tempted to build this in a real world Canadian scheme.
Fouga Magister "Exotic Air Forces" - also most probably real world. Uganda or Morocco. Or get another kit and do both!
MD/Hughes MD-500E. Probably whiffed. Finnish. Splinter-y camouflage. AT-6 Spiral ATGMs. All Weaver's fault!
Saab JA-37 Jaktviggen - four kits. Some real world, some whiffed. Much like the Mirage, I'm thinking RAF and/or Italy. The air defence greys could look good, but so could the green/grey topsides. Or something entirely else. Singapore (SEA camo and chequered fin)? Japan? A beat-up all-grey Canadian Viggen could also be interesting.
Saab AJ-37 Viggen and SK-37 Viggen two-seater in on box, plus a neat book. Both probably real world. 

And one in 1/144.
Eduard A-4F Skyhawk - re-box, no, re-bag of the Platz kit with some lovely decals and canopy masks.
Cheers,
Moritz

Just one kit per bag. Cost me just shy of 7 EUR.
HERE'S the kit on Eduard's website.

AFAIK, they will also re-release the Platz F-8 Crusader.

From today's Poynton Show:

More ebay winnings arrived today, won from 3 auctions from the same seller bundled together:
Heller Spitfire Mk VB clipped wing
MPC F-86D Sabre
Hasegawa Kitty Hawk Mk.1A
Hasegawa Spitfire Mk.1
Testors HAWK Spitfire Mk.22
And a Lindberg PT-17 box that unfortunately didn't contain a PT-17, instead inside there was what must have been a 4 pack (all 4 models instructions are on the one sheet) of Red Star models, LaGG-3, MiG-3, Anatra D S 'Anasal' and Yak-3.

From China:
1:144 Mini Hobby Models MiG-25P and SAAB AJ-37.

Disappointed about the missing Stearman, I was going to make it a seed or super spreading Ag plane, oh well some other time...
