Thanks to Hutch and Bish for putting this kit into my head I ordered this from Scalehobbyist. $32.89 for the kit was good enough to push me through. Considering that it comes with a metal barrel, that's quite a bargain. Opted to pick up the tracks since they were available. Always admired the Centurion tank. Glad to have it now.

 

Nice, i've got the Mk.3 but i'd like to get the 5/2 as well because it has the different gun. And i have the DEF matlet and some resin wheels for mine.

I am a Norfolk man and i glory in being so

I also ordered the DEF mantlet for it

 Yes, a Cent doesn't look like a Cent without one of those.  Edit - oops, pressed "enter" too early! - it really should be included in the kit as standard.

Welcome to the Centurion Owners' club, Joe!  It does look like a great kit, and you got it at a good price, too.  I think I'll try to start mine early next year - I have some stuff to get off my bench first.  

 

Thanks Hutch. I forgot to mention that I also ordered the DEF mantlet for it and it is enroute.

Great pick up with the Dinah Joe. It should build into a great model.

Aggie: Sweet kit. I'm unfamiliar with Dora Wings myself. I'll be interested in your assessment. Cliff: Lovely lot you got yourself. That La-7 dual combo is awesome.  Stik: Those airfield plates are choice. I have some Soviet subjects that would look good on those. Where did you score those at? I just got this nice little 1/72 kit in the mail after winning it at FB auction. 

Nice snags, everyone - well done!  Joe, I like the Dinah, a mate of mine back in the 70s built one (I'm not sure whose make it was) & it turned out a beauty.

The Lamborghini was out of stock when I got the last order from HobbyLink Japan. It came earlier this week.

Joe and Gamera: I've had a look in the box and can't believe the quality and detail of the Tamiya Corsair. Really looking forward to it, just hope I can do it justice. Wingy things are not my favourite genre.

Aggieman that's a cool looking beast. Dora Wings have also just released a 1/48 Vultee Vengance with Aussie markings. It retails here for about $70 Aus, which is a lot, but I am tempted.

Stik and Gamera: Nice pickups. The Soviet runway matting is interesting.

Building a kit from your stash is like cutting a head off a Hydra, two more take it's place.

Aggie & Gamera, those are some fine additions! Very nice scores guys!

 

This arrived yesterday in the mail. It comes in individual slab forms that can be arranged in what configuration you prefer, then paint up. The perfect base for my Cold War Red Air Force

The Lamborghini was out of stock when I got the last order from HobbyLink Japan. It came earlier this week. 

I ordered a few more things on HLJ's Autumn sale to fill out the order.

I had a dozen Japanese tanks but no Shin Hoto- aka the second turret for the Type 97 with the high velocity 47mm gun. 

And this special edition kit with a Zvezda La-5 and a Gavia La-7. The box is so friggin' big I think it booted me into a more expensive shipping bracket... Sad

Really nice booklet- almost a book. It's all in Czech, the photos are amazing though! And decals for about twenty fighters- both La-5 and La-7!

Ferg: Hope you like her. I've never built that specific kit but still I love the 1/48th Tamiya Corsair. One of the best kits I've ever built. 

Aggieman: Ohhhhhhhhhh, love that! The P-63 isn't something you see a lot but still a nice looking plane!

My latest purchase came in today.  A new manufacturer for me, Dora Wings, and a warbird I've long wanted to build.

The box is much smaller than I expected it would be, but on the other hand, that means there remains sufficient space to add a couple more of Dora Wings' releases that I have my eyes on:  the French Marcel Bloch MB.151 and a forerunner to the P-47, the P-43 Lancer.

I have another shipment coming in soon, this being a set of resin tires for the Ju87 that I'm building right now.  The kit wheels were hot garbage.

Stik: Oooh. Nice 3D decals. Wasn't aware Kits World was making those. Where did you order those from?

Keav: That's a sweet old heli kit. Should be a fun build.

John: Now that is very cool and unigue. Beautiful craftsmanship on the Bradley. What wonderful score.

Joe: The Hurst Olds is an absolute boss score. Have you got a particular plan for that?
