First bit of Telford news, for release next month is Combat Kits 1/72 RC-135W Airseeker (Rivet Joint) comprehensive resin conversion for AMT/Italeri KC-135A base kit. Including commercially cast replacement nose, cheeks, radomes, engines and aerial fit. Price should be in the region of 45.00, message me for show pre-orders as stocks at the event will be limited. Decals not included, these can be found on recently reprinted Xtradecal sheet X72216.

Combat Kits are available exclusively from Freightdog Models.

Thanks, Colin

Hmmm, I've got one of those KC-135 kits in The Loft...

I'd have to find it up there first, it's ages since I caught a glimpse of it.    :banghead:

There could be a whole mouse or rat or even spider civilisation hiding amongst your stash you realise?

Downunder, we just takem 'em as they come.  I got Possums in my stash.   :wacko:

No way, I send in search and destroy teams before I go up there. Better safe than sorry.  ;)

If a box the size of a 1/72 KC-135 can disappear the must be dmuch darker forces afoot...  The hat and avatar make sense now, going in Kits loft us a bit like the opening scene of Raiders of the Lost Ark!
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

It's more like the last scene, miles and miles of boxes stretching into the distance with just a few dim light tubes to guide the way.  ;D ;D ;D

My stash is OK being down in the shed but my reference library in the house has problems with Silverfish eating the paper.

Not seen the little silverfish since I left the UK, I think the atmosphere in Alberta is too dry for them to survive.  Are they a common problem down in Ozz ?

You know i'm not sure.  It's not something i've discussed with my friends and family.  They are certainly common in our house.  In addition to eating my books (cloves amongst the books discourages that) they get into the crockery drawers, can't get out and die.
