    Just got this today, or should I say these? As there's two kits in the box. Also resin wheels and photo etch parts.

    There are also six options to choose from.

    Now I have my workspace operational I picked these two up at my local modelshop. So I now officially have a stash, although a very small one.

    Working with the PE on the Hellcat should be interesting, it can be small enough in 1/48th.

    Hi everyone as I've had no time at the bench lately I've been doing the next best thing. Building the stash;) slowly for those retirement rainy day afternoons. Hopefully soon I'll get to fumble with a few of them work and lifestyle permitting.:eek: IMG_8711.JPG IMG_8713.JPG IMG_8714.JPG IMG_8715.JPG IMG_8719.JPG IMG_8721.JPG IMG_8728.jpg IMG_8730.jpg IMG_8731.jpg IMG_8732.jpg

    You won the lottery or summat John? You're getting as bad as me! Mind you, that MAS and crew set are on my buy list.

    I bought a dock set once, not sure if it was the Italeri or Miniart kit. I was really disappointed to find the ends weren't included so you have to scratch build them to match the faces or you'd just have a plastic tunnel on show. I wasn't prepared to do that so it went back on the bay. Do these have the same problem?

    Although going against my recent selling spree of all car kits of 1/24 & 1/25 due to lack of space my youngest son has always wanted a 1:1 of these in this colour to carry his mountain bike a gear around in. He does cross country on his bike, wereas the eldest son does more downhill.

    He was looking for a decent reasonaly priced second-hand one, but he bought a BMW 3 series touring wagon in the same colour!

    I have just ordered what appears to be the complete 100 issues of build the titanic for what seems to be a silly price.
    And nowhere in the add does it say anything about only a single issue got it off eBay so I am protected.
    Free p&p and look at the price.
    I still got to wait a few weeks to find out. 20170516_082417.jpg

    Still no time at the bench at the moment. But I watched the yesterday channel last night. Hitler's secret weapons which I found very interesting. A day off from work today and I should have sat at my bench all day mopping up my unfinished kits. But the LMS was calling out to me and I love a good look round and a chat with the "keeper of the kits" and any plastic junkies who happen to come in. After chatting and swapping stories with a number of addicts and drinking tea for the best part of three hours I walked out with these kits. I think the programme I watched last night may have influenced some of my choices. Cracking day and met some nice folks.

    Only went for paint

    That F-18 looks very nice. You don't see model shops like that so much these days, where is it? It looks like a model shop i visited in Japan....only a bit smaller.

    I have the 1/32 Revell Tornado too, I'm itching to build it. Large scale jet SIG/GB anyone?
