A 1/24 scale, Hasegawa Lancia Stratos Safari Rally boxing, from ebay, recently missed one locally & this one was only slightly more. A slightly reckless buy having just got home from night shifts & not in full control of myself, least, that's my story & I'm sticking to it. ;) :D

Just  received the IWATA / Dream Gear ARKHITECT space ship from our local supplier SMS Paints in Melbourne. WOW !!!!!!!!!! It is a clip together model complete with built in light ways for the supplied LED lighting system. Lights with different defusers to provide the different engine light colours, running lights, crew accomodation and lights for the stand. Instructions excellent, plastic is sharp and detail great. Only 3 colours required if you want to paint, light gray, dark gray and red brown.

 

If you want a change or a mojo reboot, this maybe it 😍

Zvezda C-130

Revell A400M

 

And of course decals to build a RAF C-130 -- advice or help in building a RAF A400M used in the evacuation of Kabul would be appreciated.

Visited a new (to me anyways) model shop of sorts. It only sells Games Workshop and gaming supplies. Very well stocked and came away with a GW Bloat Drone, a Blight Hauler and  a Space Marines Tactical War Suit. All for less than the MRP which is always good for GW products 👍 Also got some Army Painter grass tufts in varying types and a couple of pots of GW 'Technical Paints' Best of all its only a 20 min drive from me and a 3 min drive from my parents house so its easy to get to from either end 😉

 

Regards,

A 'Bloat Drone'?

 

I think he was in my local last night.

From Black Mike Models

With local delivery by Duncan ICM 48279 1/48 B-26K Counter Invader kit.

 

From Aerocraft

1 x 1/48 Cessna O-2 Undercarriage Set for the third ICM kit I bought recently.

3 x 1/48 Cessna O-2 Wing Strut Sets with one for each of the ICM kit variants I now have.

 

From Amazon

Aviation Art Inc. Export Phantoms Illustrated by Lou Drendel published 2021 by Amazon , the latest in the growing series with the usual mix of photos (mainly colour) , artwork , small-scale plan drawings and some technical manual excerpts including the best part of a page given over to the Strike Camera carried by RAF aircraft , on the other hand coverage is patchy with about a quarter of the book dedicated to the JASDF of which around half of the illustrations are of non-standard colour schemes compared with a page and a bit with two photos for Australia.

 

From Key Publishing

Three of the recently published titles from their excellent image intensive Modern and Historic Book Series , ordered Thursday afternoon and delivered Saturday morning with free shipping , perhaps they should handle distribution for other more challenged publishers.

Avro Vulcan – The Early Years 1947-64 , Historic Military Aircraft Series Volume 7 by David W Fildes , development and service achievements given year-by-year coverage for that period although the final few pages covering the 'End Of An Era' and the withdrawal of the Vulcan leave me wondering if there will be second volume in the same style covering the last two decades.

British Ground-Attack Aircraft Of The 1970s and ’80s , Historic Military Aircraft Series Volume 8 by Chris Goss , following on from ‘Fighters’ and ‘Bombers’ this latest volume focuses on the Jaguar and the Harrier (RAF & RN).

Dassault Super Ėtendard , Modern Military Aircraft Series Volume 5 by Frédéric Lert , with the Lynx in French naval service already covered in an earlier volume there is certainly scope for other recent Aéronavale types to follow – Atlantic/Atlantique2 , Etendard IVM/P , Super Frelon , Alize and Crusader to name but a few.

Yet another Trumpeter 1/72 T-55!!

You be careful that Special Branch don't start investigating you Ben. They may think that you're starting a private army.

I won't mention the Takom Maz transporter and T-54 I've just won on ebay (for an absolute steal!) then :giggle:

A few things I had forgotten to mention earlier: a Superscale sheet of blue USAF/U.S. Air Force titles in 1/72 (never easy to find) and a few more Revell enamels. I've been quite impressed with them, to be honest.

A new central heating pump, the bathroom is warm again! (Grundfos nfos UPS3 15-50/65, for those of you who know about these things)

Two Airfix McDonnell Douglas Phantom FG.1 kits, bringing the total to three. This was because I discovered I'd bought Xtradecal's "McDonnell-Douglas Phantom FG.1 in RAF service" sheet some time ago, and it has three examples of XV571 which was in 43 Sqdn exclusively.

I recently replaced mine, which had finally given up the ghost. I chose a cheap Chinese copy recommended by a heating engineer, which is running OK, and quietly. I just hope it lasts. But Grundfos are the Tamiya of CH pumps. 😄

Two Airfix not-quite B.XVI Mosquitos as they're finally in stores here & two Blackbird Model sheets containing Mossies (and other interesting bits) of different subtypes.

Ordered a few bottles of Mr. Color paint and thinner from Lucky Models, HK. For 35$ order value, the shipping charge is 17$. It has to be surface mail because of flammable items. Expected time of delivery 2 - 6 months..... I have no alternates available..... I have absolutely no choice except to wait and HOPE the item will some how reach my place ..... Building miniature models in India will drive you nuts 😟

 

I am jealous of you folks..... I should keep away from this thread.....🙄 😃

Per Airbus press release, ZM411 was the last UK military aircraft to leave Kabul.
