  1. Any good model shops in Kraków ?

    Think I have found the shop on Google earth - called Phantom on Dluga 5, Krakow - looks as if it is a bookshop as well. I shall go and have a look in October! 50° 4'1.55"N 19°56'20.05"E

  6. What have you purchased / been gifted

    Protar 1/9th AJS 7R 350cc bike from a charity shop £2.50. Engine has been started but whoever it was did a good job. Hasegawa 1/48 Phantom from HAMEX yesterday..
  7. I'll be getting one - Remember making it as a lad and struggling to get the fuselage halves to join neatly as there was so much detail inside - and forgetting to add any noseweight. Hopefully make a better job of the re-release.
  8. And it loooks as if the first lot of Phantoms has sold out already - mine didnt arrive that was on pre-order with air miles.....I mean flying hours:( Pre-Order New Tool £24.99 Item Code: A06016 Expected: February 2018

  10. Airfix 1/72 Phantom FG.1 in Stock at Hornby

    I hope so as I preordered a Phantom and a Sea Fury using Airfix Air miles and have been told by Airfix they won't ship them until they are both in stock. Worried that the Phantom stocks will disappear before the SF turns up.....
  11. What have you purchased / been gifted

    Something different with the Christmas Amazon vouchers.... 1/35th Miniart European Tram and Passengers. A lot of plastic in the box...
  12. Lego Saturn V

    There are always a few bits extra in most kits
  13. There's nice artwork on Adam Tooby's website showing a Hampden.......and a Lockheed Lightning , Starfighters...and others - perhaps these give another clue as what is about to appear...

  18. Airfix 2018

    Would they have had to go all the way to Seattle to scan it tho? There are other ones closer to home.. And there's not a lot of room around it for the technical scannng equipment - if it has been scanned that is - guess we'll find out in good time.
  19. Airfix 2018

    If it has to be bigger than a HE111 there's not a lot in the MofF that, IMHO think, would fit Airfix's wishes - other than Airliners, B52, B47.... could be a Concorde - but not sure how well the original 1/72 scale one (with all its faults) sold.
  20. Airfix 2018

    From Seattle MofF - must be the P38 ...but it was dangling from the ceiling in the summer....or a P or B47! OR.... how about a 1/72 Boeing P8 Posiedon - they build them there....... RAF's newest...
  21. Hamex Kit swap and 2018 shows...

    Great show and very happy with my PR9....
  22. What have you purchased 9

    Wandered into a shop selling diecasts this morning and spottted a Tamiya 1/32 F-16C Thunderbirds boxing..... I think I must be going mad 'cos I actually thought about it for five minutes before paying the £40 the shopkeeper was asking for it..... Also picked up LS Bede microjet BD5 and BDJ
