  2. Oops. DCS, here I come! Sunday browsing resulted in a i7 10700, RTX 3070 showroom sale. Getting the components separately is unpossible so for 1800€ can't pass this one by. Some rare finds: a Pegasus Lockheed XFV-1 Salmon VTOL experimental, and MPM Spit PR.XI via the 'bay.

Hampden origin: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/airfix-491-handley-page-hampden--161563 Blenheim: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/airfix-02027-1-blenheim-iv--163369 There is no alternative for the Battle (yet) so.. for newer, more recent versions of the other ones: new tool Blenheim (or other boxings of this serial like A04017 ) https://www.scalemates.com/kits/airfix-a04061-bristol-blenheim-mkiv--1025262 That would be recommended over the old one.
