My recent vacation to Austin, TX

Crane, may I ask about those excellent boots? Does that style have a particular name? 

 

 

Top footwear sir.:thumbsup2:

1/32 Tamiya Spitfire IX

1/32 PCM Spitfire XIV

 

Only god can judge me.

 

Also one of those Kora/Eduard Fw 190A-9 kits in 1/72; I'm sure a Spitfire shot one down at some point, so I just need to find the proper markings.

TY

They are FRYE, made in USA

I got them at Allens in Austin, TX http://www.allensboots.com/?gclid=COr9p8Cnt9YCFcm6wAodZ68MdQ

They had them on sale for $299. I wore them out the store and for the rest of vacation.

Has it arrived yet? I'm curious to know what it has in addition to the Eduard plastic parts. I've got a Hasegawa A-9 and F-9 (Panzerblitz) in the stash, however the Eduard F-8 has the Panzerblitz rockets anyway.

 

thanks

Nope, just ordered from Czechlandia. I'll keep you posted. I think mainly it's just the resin for the different engine fan, and their rather dodgy decals.

Just a minute... two more BIG kits? Wow. Straight from the Gentelman's scale to 1/32? I plan to work up through 1/48 myself, one day. :)

From the IPMS Farnborough show last week, the vendor had these at a fiver less than Hannants so why not?

I remember seeing the Leopard sitting belatedly on a roundabout on the A338 going into Bournemouth a few years back and never thought I'd see a model of it in any scale. The 109 cannot  possibly be more hideous than the many the Avis kits I have vainly tried to bludgeon together, though another BM er is rising to the challenge

No worries, I'm sure Eduard will release an A-9 at some point but I wouldn't be sure about an F-9, although if they did one it would be very easy to do the other! I would definitely like to know what's in the Kora box!

 

thanks

Citizen Clem by John Bew, biography of Clement Attlee. Caught my eye in Waterstones when I was supposed to be picking up a birthday present for my brother-in-law. Excellent read so far, main revelation - Jack Jones (the union leader) was wounded in the Spanish Civil War.

It's been quite some times I dreamed about sexy Huey nose arts.

And here they come in 1/48.

I have discovered the true meaning of Christmas…

Normally, I'd be the first to say “What! It's only September!”, but some things are worth making an exception for. :D :drink:

That looks like a very nice subject to do. I spent a while looking at G-BRNM at the Midland Air Museum and it had a certain panache about it. Low, sleek and rather svelte indeed!

Why?

Open it as soon as the chrimbo stuff starts arriving in the shops (or snoopy's bloody x-mas starts playing... again!).

 

If it's good enough for the shops to think it's "the season", open it up and start sampling!

I'm sorry to show you the holy grail and then whip away the promise of fulfilment, but the supplier was Costco, which unfortunately may not be available to everyone. A quick search for 'Craft beer advent calendar' brings up a number of results: although quite expensive options. I don't know if these have full sized bottles: mine has the smaller 275ml to 300ml bottles.

 

I found this – it includes a whisky calendar! (best look at the price before you add it to your 'want' list):

As for starting it early, I've got Mrs. Gorby to contend with. :dinosaur:

Well I quite like the Honest Brew advent box. 

But a selection of 24 Magic rock beers* (for instance) will cost you less than that.

Wrap the cans in Christmas paper, add your own choice of snacks, and you're good to go!

 

*Other beers are apparently available.
