1 x Duplicata Productions 1/35 Vietnam War American Cigarettes (DU-59B-35)
2 x Duplicata Productions 1/35 Vietnam War US Beer Boxes (DU-46C-35)
1 x DEF Model 1/35 British RR Armoured Car Balloon Sagged Wheel set Vol. 2 for Meng Models (DEF-DW30044)
3 x Master Models 1/350 HMS Exeter 1939 Armament - Barrels for Trumpeter kits (SM-350-108)*
1 x MiniArt Models 1/35 WWII Australian M3 Lee [Interior Kit] (MA35287)


I assume the cigarettes set are cartons ? As a matter of interest is the branding for those and the beer identifiable ? Or have they avoided a known brand because of copywrite/licensing issue ?

That Master Models Essex set is excellent. I'm determined to get myself a decent ship kit at the next Southern Expo as there's always a trader there who specialises in ship models (Dorking Models)

Cigarettes are Kool, Camel, Lucky Strike & Marlboro. (PS: packets & cartons)

Beers are Budweiser & Carling Black Label. (PS: cartons, a.k.a. "slabs")

So, real brands. :thumbsup:


I love ship models, I just have an issue with the scale. 1/350 is so bloody tiny! Gods-forbid I should ever try 1/700! :o

From BNA Model world's Bushfire Relief Sale part 2 (part 1 raised $5000) I got this.
Panhard VBL by Fred Maillardet, on Flickr
I wasn't sure about it until I spotted it had a propeller.  Being a sucker for amphibians I then had to have it.
No idea who the end user will be.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

I'd settle for 1/144 but I'd hate to think how big a kit of USS Intrepid or KMS Prinz Eugen would be in that scale, the 1/350 kits I have are large enough but it's the details that kill! :o

From the Bolton Show I seemed to get quite a mixed bag of stuff:-

2nd Hand all 72nd
Supermodel Cant 1007 land plane single fin - odd choice but I always liked them as something a bit different.
Fujimi Westland Army Lynx
Skybirds 86 Martin Baker MB5 - still a better model than the awful AZ kit
Skybird 86 Supermarine Scimitar - one Lee found going cheap
MPM Kikka

New
Zoura 1/72nd Horten 229 with 1/144 version included - expensive but one I wanted to try (and if bought might encourage them to do more in 72nd)
Revell (Finemoulds) Millenium Falcon = half price so had to go for it

I was sorely tempted by the new Airfix Classics Military Vehicle kits as I grew up with them, they should now be in usual decent grey plastic of current Airfix kits (rather than that translucent crap Heller used) although I think I would miss the Buff and the Olive Green plastics of the original kits plus i'm not sure what they use for tracks these days as they tend not to be the soft rubber of the original kits. Anyway such thought went out the window once I spotted the Falcon and realized it was actually affordable.

Very restrained as there simply wasn't that much I wanted -well, there was plenty I could buy but having multiples or they were just a shade too pricey I left them behind.

Anyway, I did pick up:
Skybirds 86 Sea Hornet NF21 - a fiver!  I was ill, but not *that * ill to leave that behind
SAM Spitfire F21 conversion set - it was 2 quid and I only really wanted the contraprop.
Aeroclub Firebrand prop

I spent more money on tea and coffee to keep me awake and prevent coughing...

An Akkura 1:72 Saab 35 Draken - a zombie version of the vintage Revell kit.
With the amount of rivets that kit has (fortunately recessed) you will probably want it for conversion fodder instead of trying to make a proper Draken B out of it (it's slightly out of scale too);  the wings could be used to build a forgotten double-delta from another manufacturer (for originality, one that's not EE Lightning or MiG-21)  ;)
