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

I haven't opened the bag but it looks to be the same stuff eduard use.

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


Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

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:

Just off to collect these on my way to work:

2 x Bronco Models (styrene) Workable Track Set for 1/35 Panther Later Type (AB3540) - for my Japanese Panther
1 x Alliance Model Works 1/35 Grill Mesh for Dragon kit Panther D/A (A-LW35013) - for my Japanese Panther
1 x AFV Club 1/35 US Water Buffalo LVT-4 Landing Vehicle Tracked (Late Type) (AFV-AF35198) - I'm thinking the interior may be made to fit into my Italeri LVT(A)-4 (under construction) to add some internal detail
2 x Tamiya 1/35 JGSDF (Japan Ground Self Defence Force) Motorcycle Recon Set (2 figures) (TM 35245) - on sale & modernish motorbikes are rare in 1/35, mostly for post apocalyptic dioramas

From Airbrush Megastore; texture stencils.

These will enable me to produce a random, organic faded texture when airbrushing.  Or at least that is the plan.

Latest stuff here. I know what you're thinking... "You bought the wrong Bear, you moron..... "  ;D But not so... I was looking for a 1/144 Bear to go with the BRAZ conversion set but they were all too pricey.... oddly, this one was much cheaper, so I snagged it. In fact, of all this stuff, the Bear was the least expensive purchase by quite a margin...  impulse buy, hard to pass it up. Problem is, I still need a 1/144 version. I wonder, though, would the Revell kit work?  :unsure:

Bonus....  another impulse buy. (I really need to work on that... )  But, it's so cool! T-shirt. Viscount.  ;D

Yeah! That's the same one I just from Chrisonord, HUGE isn't it?  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

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

Rather intimidating for me, that's no doubt.   :o  It'll probably languish in the stash for years. Definitely an "off season" project. Glad to have found it.  :lol:

I'd advise binning the Spitfires as they're from the dark ages.

Although... The Hasegawa kit is passable - Zenrat has done a rather nice one, but I still wouldn't bother given that the old tool Airfix kit is better, let alone the new one. But having said that, I can come up with a user and a back story to get round make use of the kit's deficiencies.  The Hawk kit is  bad, with solid wheel wells and an odd fuselage cross section.  The tail surfaces are wrong for a 22, being more F14 than Spiteful.  Could be usable with a new wing (Heller 16 advised).

As for the Heller VB?  Bin, although the spare props and the Vokes filter could be used elsewhere.
