Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Bought yesterday from a guy a couple of streets from my work:

1 x Azur 1/72 Hanriot H232/2
1 x Akkura 1/72 PLZ 50 Jastrab (twin pack)
1 x Revell 1/48 Arado Ar 234 C-3
1 x Trumpeter 1/35 Italian Pume 4x4 AFV

When I saw these online I thought the PLZ 50 was a 1/48 kit & the Ar 234 was 1/72, so I was a bit taken aback when I saw them, then thought "Meh, why not" & bought them anyway. Only the PLZ 50 box has been opened, & the contents in there are still in their plastic bag, so a good sign everything should be in them.

He also put aside another 3 kits for me to buy next week. ;D

I honestly have no firm idea of what I want to do with any of them, except the Puma AFV - if I can find the time, it's going to be a fire-fighting vehicle for the Firefighters GB over on BtS.

I'm thinking I may build one of the PLZ 50's as one of the two OoB options & use the other Polish markings on the Hanriot, which may be modded from a trainer into a light bomber.

1 x Akkura 1/72 PLZ 50 Jastrab (twin pack)


I acquired this twin boxing fairly recently. It's the same kit as the Polair one I have in the stash but at least Akkura cleaned the tools up. The Polair one is probably the worse kit I have in the stash  :-\

Have a plan to do one as a naval type, the other will probably be real world so I can get a full collection of PZL types. That's the plan anyway  :rolleyes:

In the manner that the Czech's and Israel had the Avia S-199 why not put this in some eastern European airforce markings c 1950?

Hmm?! I do have lots of Czech markings. ;D

And I can put one of those cool Czech "amoeba" type camo schemes on it! :mellow:

I'd have to look but I'm fairly sure I don't have any markings suitable for any of those ... or any other, for that matter.

Lots of unwanted US markings, though. :rolleyes:

On order from ebay:  Magna Supermarine Swift F7

Less than 20 notes and post free.  That'll do for for a camouflaged version toting Firestreaks rather than the cumbersome Fireflashes.

THAT sounds interesting. Or alternatively IDF markings, after the Czech Ar 234s were sold to Israel?  ;)

I'm sure I could find something suitable for you if you wanted.   :thumbsup:
