What's your latest acquisition Part V ?


Recommended Posts

Still no airfix beaufighter, but fortunately a Hasegawa mkvi had been delivered and having seen the kit has the spinners for a mk1 i gladly paid the higher price and waived the order.

How do chaps,

 

A Hyundai Kona!

 

It's a bit quirky and could be classed as ugly by some (bit like me sen really) Was pleasently surprised as Mrs fatfingers liked the look of it as soon as she saw it. Had to decide between one in red or one in blue. I liked both colours so the boss decided on the blue! 

 

Should be ready to collect next week.

 

Regards,

 

Steve

Going to have find a pic of one now Steve. 

On holiday near Bungay and of to pick up a small order from Hannants on Friday. The other thing I have bought is a new element for the oven that should be at home by the time I get back. Replaced it before and not a difficult job, but requires a bit of care.

I just finished up designing and having printed a custom set of designed decals for two 57th FG P-47’s, and some markings for Whif builds. Also a Set of Lacquer paints in Italian colors for my upcoming Macchi C.202 build, now I can paint the Smoke ring camouflage.

Hi Dennis. Can I ask who printed the decals for you please? I'm still waiting for the ones that I ordered from Peddinghaus, and would like to have a backup source.

Thanks.

 

John.

The book Samurai Phantoms by our own @Red Dot Andy Binks. If you like Phantoms and/or Japanese aviation, this is a must have. It has loads of nice colour photo's of JASDF F-4EJ's in special schemes, each with a description of the scheme and the colours used.

 

Highly recommended!

 

Oh, and also an Airfix Hunter F.6 and a Miniart Mercedes beer delivery van :drink:. And some paint.

Had to google that as I had no clue what it was (but I did guess it was a car and not a microwave... :) )

...and I can see why. But I think it looks pretty cool! 👍

Or, you could sell the decals and save money?

No, silly me, what was I thinking?

Several more kits from the local auction site. A Italeri Ju86E & a Revell F-16B, both 1/72 from one seller & a Revell, ex Frog He 115 from another. Some boxes ticked off with these two.

Was gifted a part-built 1/72 K40 Hasegawa Sukhoi Su-27 Flanker kit which I was told had been acquired as a charity-shop buy.

One of the harder to find Modeldecal sheets that has an 81st FIW F-86A option. Again, just need a kit to put them on now!

Serependitiously, I managed to score a pair of Airfix 1/72 F-84Fs off eBay, so now I have something to put my decals on!  

 

Anyone know the best route to a 1/72 F-86A-5?
