  1. So you may know if you've followed any of my few threads over the past few months that I'm at uni now. There is no viable option for airbrushing, and any large models are entirely out of the question; I'll work on those in the summer, I've got a 1/32 Lancaster to get on with in summer 2022. My go to subject to build, obviously a Vulcan, is still a favourite, but really I want to be the building 1/200 kits for an aircraft of this size and short of ordering directly from Hong Kong, they aren't exactly the easiest kit to get hold of in large quantities at the moment (if someone would just sell me 10 or so of them that would be very nice....). 1/144 is viable but the supply of GWH Vulcans is just as bad, and Trumpeter ones just aren't ideal (although I haven't tried cutting one up yet to make a B1..... not sure it's even doable) So I'm a bit stuck for ideas. What do I want to build? I love large models, can't do those. Vulcans are my thing, but I can't find the right kits. I like to build Luftwaffe stuff when I'm not doing V Bombers, but I really need the airbrush for those. I'd kind of like to branch out into airliners, but most of the kits are just too big even in 1/144. Painting white isn't an issue at least, I can use spray cans outside. When Beacon Models really gets going, there should be a plentiful supply of 1/144 kits of ww2 subjects that I'd like to build, have space for and the Luftwaffe subjects probably don't need mottling as much (their range looks to be mostly early war stuff), but the first release is still months away. What do I build until then? Basically I need ideas! Conversion projects are still viable, I'm working on converting a 1/200 Vulcan B2 into a B1. These are great as a student as they take longer to complete, so I have to spend less to fund this hobby. Short run kits are probably just as good, plus they often cover obscure subjects or neglected variants that I like. Small scales, obviously ideal because of space. British subjects from ww2 to cold war, Luftwaffe subjects that don't need mottling, maybe even Soviet stuff since they made some very very nice looking planes. Maybe even a tank. I need ideas for kits to butcher!
