On our way up to my in-laws for Christmas, we stopped in a hobby shop in Muskegon, Michigan, where I got an original issue 1/72 Airfix TSR.2 for $24.

I plan on modernizing the kit with some newer parts. This will be my 2nd build in the Corsair STGB. It will wear VMF 214 “Blacksheep” markings. The other build will be a -1a in Boyingtons show plane markings. oNxkCcq.png
 

Or his regular markings. AI2iO5o.png
I was also given $45 to buy more of whatever i choose.

I didn't get any kits, but did get a decent set of tweezers that actually grip things (rather than pinging them off into n-space), a JLC Micro-Saw 20th Anniversary set, and a replacement Micro-Mesh kit. Now I can grip, saw and polish at tiny scales.

 

Stop sniggering at the back!

But of course! Highly recommended by a couple of members of Roy Sutherland's Facebook group for being precise and non-twisty, the PIXNOR Precision Tweezers Set:

I received enough chocolate to sink a battleship and enough alcohol to re-float it again. 

 

Mission successful. :happy:

 

P.S. Duffest prezzie was from least favourite sister-in-law – a £4.80 T-shirt (she left the price on) that you could clearly fit two of me and the dog inside. :huh:

Perhaps she was anticipating the vast intake of chocolate and alcohol....!! :)

Don't invent a new one, or we'll have demands that Airfix need to do an RAF variant in 1/72!

And another set ordered. Perhaps the all too familiar sight of some vital component disappearing into the gloom of the man-cave will now be a thing of the past. Thanks for the heads-up John!

Another set ordered as most of my tweezers are a bit duff. You sure you're not on commission.

I too got chocolate and a bottle of malt for Crimbo, along with a new watch. Plus other bits and bobs. Nothing for the spares boxes though.

On Tuesday I was around the back of a pub waiting for the cellar doors to be opened and noticed a small shelving unit in a skip.

Well imagine my shock when I got back to the warehouse and found it in the back of the van. I must have had a blackout.

Anyway it found itself in the manshed this morning, Fit's nicely.
