Received this in the mail today. I'm excited to have added this really beautiful kit. Interesting feature of this kit is that the side clear parts are molded into the fuselage halves. Quite ingenious for this particular aircraft.

I forgot two. I got them at HL wit the coupon.

I've been wanting a tiger for a while......so.....it's a little squat. I think the Tamiya may be a little more accurate.

Next, to continue my modern air benge.

I ordered the Hase 1/72 A-7, Hase 1/72 F-16CJ Block 50, Academy 1/72 F-35A and a Hase 1/48 A6M5 Type 52 Zero. I couldn't help myself. Pics when I get e'm

That's an awesome wife you have there. Mine will be a while till I get to it. I just lucked out by winning this at auction for $30.00. I hope when you get to yours that you will do a WIP for us.

Mopar Madness,

That is one heck of a haul!  Merry Christmas to you!

Yes Airfix is certainly one of today’s “happening” model companies. Who knew we would see a 1/48 Sea Vixen or Javelin (aka Dragmaster)?  And a 1/72 Swift - something I’d expect only from MPM or Sword.

And my evil agents have whispered to me that Vulcans are being studied by the Airfix team!  Hey Airfix, don’t forget there’s a Sunderland at RAF Museum Duxford...

Oh wow... a new tooled Vulcan would be a very welcome addition!  I figure they’re due for one.  A new tooled Concorde and Sunderland would be great too!

Ha, it sure looks that way!  I’m patiently awaiting the arrival of the FRG2 and 1/48 Hunter to arrive stateside.  Your build of the RN Phantom really has me wanting the RAF variant.

I am popping into the LHS tomorrow for some paint. I doubt it will be on the shelves there just yet, but if it is i will grab one. If not, i will get it next weekend. I have known which one i was doing for ages, going to do the box art aircraft based in the Falklands.

Of course when they say “January release”, they really mean by the end of February!  Sad  Even then, it’s a solid month before inventory shows up a stateside.

It was announced yesterday on the Airfix site thats its out and ready to order. The shops normaly get them a few days later, Hannants has it listed as ariving this coming week. My LHS gets tehre around the same time, though the LHS had the FG.1 on the shelf a couple oif days before Hannants.

So one of my new years resolution's was not to buy any new kits this year only AM parts and build from the stash. Well I fundged a bit and traded a few kits for Dragons 1/35th Leopold rail gun. I didn't really know how big this sucker was going to be untill it showed up at the door today.

Now I just need his big sister, Soararts 1/35th Dora to go with him!Whistling

I received my latest order from Sprue Bros.

For my stash.

I still love the Zero. 1/48.

F-16 trainer, and of course you can't have modern air collection without an A-7.

And a few things to sling under the wings for the moderns I'm getting

I still want to get a few more like the F-15, 18, and other countries. I'll then work on the SU's and MiG's.

I saw that Airfix is coming out with an F-15 and 16, both A's. I'm going to pre-order them soon.

Two builds I promised some guys at work that I'd build for them.

This box is bigger that the 1/48 Zero.

Nice haul there Steve. I built that F-16D a few years back, nice kit. Be aware that those Airfix kits are not new ones, they are both starter sets based on their late 70's early 80's kits.

Oh, for the price I thought they must be new molds. I can get Hase's for less. Thanks for the heads up mate.
