Ooh, such a lovely, delicate kit, Heller at their finest!  The latest boxings carry some really nice decal options too!

 

I know it's for your Austrian Air Force project but it would be very welcome in this autumn's Classic Heller GB ... just sayin' right! :whistle:

Thanks for the invite, Wez!

Another win from the local auction site. A Roden Fokker D.VI, just 'cause I liked the sound of something with a DR.1 fuselage & D.VII wings. :)

A couple of Model Alliance decal sheets in 1/72 scale. One is a set of Canberra stencils and the other is for some Nimrods, which includes the one that flew from RAE Bedford. I would have seen that one flying around as a kid, as it was local.

Well done but how many is that and is Guernsey big enough for them even at 1/18 scale?

 

Was on holiday there almost 30 years ago and arrived on the day the speed limit along the west coast was dropped for the summer , hire car was a ridiculously overpowered Escort model and don't think I had it above third gear in the fortnight we were there , lovely though.

Thanks as soon as they arrive and the weather cheers up a bit i'll put some photo's of them and the one's i already have in the diecast section...

 

There are a couple of DB5's over here along with DB11's etc and Ferraris/Lambo's and any others you can think of when it comes to Supercars....There's a couple of companies over here that specialize in storing them and it's not unusual to see a DBS or a couple of Aventadors or a Huracan out for a drive during the summer...

Thanks to Giorgio @giemme and his Lightning T-Bird thread, a Sword 1/72nd EE Lightning T.4/5.  Thank you very much Giorgio!  :nono:

 

An Arma Hobby Hurricane IIC which looks like it will be my subject for the MTO3 GB later this year.

 

Finally, from @Ali62 at Aerocraft Models, a couple of canopy sets for my Meteor NF.12s so I can show off that internal detail, I'm thinking one of the Meteors will be my subject for the Interceptors GB later this year.  Thanks Ali :thumbsup:

Ali,

 

Happy to do so but it won't be until I pick up modelling again in the autumn once the studying is done and dusted once and for all...  ...so what I'm saying is, don't hold your breath!

Arrived yesterday, picked up this morning from the Waterlooville Model Centre.

 

IMG_2160

 

For a project I have in mind.  

Academy F 15E Strike Eagle 1/48.

There were only 2 left on the Big H`s site and no more being made or held by Eduard.

 

Question for peeps, Does the F 15K differ greatly in regards of Air Brake, U/C bays etc, because I am thinking of using the K version for the outside.

 

 

Simon.

From HMV - still going in the Merry Hill centre, Dudley - albeit for the next year, but we live in hope, and I am doing my best to help them!

 

SAM_8867

 

In the (lower) red corner, Slow Rush by Tame Impala, a Aussie band whose main man was allegedly influenced by Todd Rundgren in his early material; and in the (upper) blue corner, Inescapable, by Godsticks, a band from Newport in South Wales, close to my birthplace, Cardiff. Prog metallish rock, their previous albums are intriguing and good - at least for me, so I'm looking forward to this one.

 

And from Smiths and Amazon, these;

 

SAM_8868

 

I think Mick Herron's Slow Horses need no introduction for BM'ers, and the latest in the series - again for me - doesn't fail. Intriguing, linking a couple of novellas into the main stream as it were, an excellent read.

 

The Peter Grant bio is of a man both large and larger than life. If you know anything of Led Zeppelin, you'll know about Peter Grant, their manager. I once had the "pleasure" of seeing him in action, protecting the interest of the band at a concert, and to put it mildly, he was a very, very unpleasant, violent  man. Mark Blake, the author, recently wrote a fascinating book about the Who (Pretend you're in a war; The Who and the '60's) which I've read and I am hoping the Peter Grant book is as good.

 

And finally, a ticket for the talk by Ross Halfin (celebrated Rock photographer) at the photography show in Birmingham next month.

.a good day for the stash.....wandering into my local curios & collectables shop spotted a couple of rare kits on the shelf... only £15, 48th Airfix Buccaneer..and a Hi-Grade Hase F-4..For some reason there are four metal ejection seats in the Hasegawa F-4 box....

That's a lucky haul and then some! I've had both in my stash for some time now though had to pay (relatively) daft prices by comparison. The Phantom had been on my radar since seeing it as a kid in 1987 (Hasegawa like Tamiya kits were 'waaaaaay' outside my pocket money or even Christmas budget) and I went a little 'wild' when I returned to the hobby in 2011 and discovered eBay. Main problem for me with the Bucc kits has been whether to pull the trigger and put the effort in or wait to see if the Tanmodel kit pans out. Best of luck with the kits!

Part 10 in the Hachette Air Power Series arrived from my newsagent this week covering The  F-86 Sabre – 160 pages with at least two images on each page but sadly only two of RAF aircraft.     One intriguing image with diorama potential for those who like a challenge shows a USAF F-86A test firing HVAR Rockets while suspended from a crane with gear up, cockpit canopy open and pilot inside wearing a standard uniform cap (did a search using aircraft serial and found that image online at - https://www.plane-encyclopedia.com/cold-war/north-american-f-86a-sabre/  -  scroll about a third of the way down and it can open up to full screen).    Excellent for 9.99 , however no mention of whatever might be next in this very poorly promoted series.

 

Aberdeen Airport After 50 years , 16 page colour glossy A4 brochure produced for the airport’s Golden Jubilee in July 1984 , some really nice nostalgia shots of long gone aircraft and airlines and only 50 pence from my local Public Library’s Book Sale.

 

Delivered direct from TWOBOBS 1/48 48-268 T-38C Heritage Talons Decal Sheet and their Centennial of Naval Aviation CD-R with 800+ reference images now currently discounted to $3.00

Also from Halifax today, A Mikro Mir Canberra T.17 that I had ordered ages ago from Dave at HMW and a Hobby 2000 TBM Avenger. also some bits and pieces of adhesives, fillers and some Looks like Glass by DeLuxe Materials as the sample looked good at Telford, but they had run out.

Looked out for you Steve, but did not see you.

Same here Martin! Didn't get into the show til about 12ish as went round town first due to the boss wanting to go to the Piece Hall and other places! Wasn't there that long really and was heading home before 2. Show seemed very quiet and there were a few empty tables. No doubt due to Dennis no doubt.

 

Regards,

 

Steve

I left about the same time you arrived, I thought it seemed quiet as well. Some nice models though, tempted by small scale armour. Must resist the dark side

This arrived this morning, over the moon about it as I used to own a real one in 1986.
