    tmp_4364-IMG_20170211_171134420346171.jpg Got one of my eBay bargains through the post today. Probably not the best kits in the world, but for £12 perfectly fine to practice on. :)

    That's a really nicely detailed kit, I built it many many years ago. The only problem I had with it was the cover that went on the top of the fuselage and engines, it took quite a lot of filing and sanding to get a good fit. I also helped make a small part of the real aircraft, we made the movement sensors that were used on the auto cannon.

    On my continued theme of 'Woody's' I've won this kit, on ebay UK, and although it doesn't show any 'Wood' on it, I've found photo's of one of these at a USA car show and will copy that!

    Cheers Moni. Will be my first kit with PE which should prove interesting. Saying that I'm going to build a few other kits first to get my skill & experience levels up, so that I can give this one the justice it deserves.

    Eventually I'd like to get a British Centurion Mk V to build and give to my dad. :)

    On the subject of Spitfires, this arrived today. Box is a bit battered but the contents are fine and still sealed in their original bags. For £10.50 I'm not going to complain. :)
