    Nice collection but what i really like is your nautilus. I am Struggling to justify spending the money the price its going for but that is sure to increase as its out of production i believe now but i do really want one of these.

    hope your purchases made up for you bad work days.

    Trip to one of my other local model shops today for brass rod. Of course I had to rummage and these two caught my eye and I managed to get a small price reduction. IMG_9554.JPG

    Your sea hurricane looks good. Always nice to get a price reduction as well.

    The Italeri Hurricane builds into a great model. You just need to be very careful doing the cockpit, or you might get fit issues joining the two fuselage halves.
    Some rather nice additions being posted in here....

    Yes Colin I am very fortunate in that I have four model shops locally. I frequent then all on a regular basis. I'll be passing one of them today so I may have to pull in.:) Even if it's just to mix up the stock a little.;)
    There can't me many people as fortunate as myself as model shops are a rarity on the high street these days.

    You are certainly spot on with that.

    Here in swindon we used to have a shop called Trents that became Beatties. I spent just about all of my work lunch breaks in there catching up on the latest kits, picking up bits and pieces.

    At the other end of the town we had the Swindon Model Centre. Fantastic local run shop that very sadly closed recently as the owner retired.

    We do have one small shop left now called spot on models and while they carry some plastic kits the bulk of there retail seems to centre on trains.

    You are indeed lucky because while buying online is convenient there is nothing like being able to look at boxes on the shelf.

    Yes Tony I love a good rummage and a fondle of the boxes. Chatting with the proprietor and abit of bartering of course. Was running an errand for someone today and I just couldn't drive past one of the LMS. I've no will power you see and couldn't leave with nothing under my arm.Not a massive saving but £2 cheaper than his nearest main rival.

    Any saving is better than no saving. And if i had been in that shop i would have been more than tempted by your latest purchase - that looks a really good one.

    Got these through the post the other day . Ive been eyeing them up for a while and was looking out for them at Newark but didnt see any so ordered them online. The Zlins are KP new tools and look great (although they have a design fault in that one of the oleo legs is 1mm longer than the other ,but to be fair it does tell you to correct this in the instructions ,ive got the Pavla resin correction set for the 2 seat version and I can alter the single seat with whats spare from this) The LET Morava is a rebox of an AZ kit I think and looks great too , its a bit limited run but nothing any competent modeller cant handle.

    Kits i have not seen before so will be interested to see how you get on with these.

    Looks like the have some nice bright colour options though so should make up into some real stand out aircraft.

    The bugatti looks interesting. What sort of parts breakdown do you get in the box?

    there is not a huge amount of parts. No engine detail. The body work has a good amount of detail to it.

    Its a lovely looking car and will look really good under a nice shiny paint layer.

    Look forward to seeing how you get on with it.

    Couple of additions to the stash. Been on the lookout for these two for a while at the right price. Ade Close Enough (thanks) managed to get these two for me off his fellow club members which I collected this morning. As a bonus the 33 came with addition Eduard PE cockpit detail parts. Just waiting on the hobbyboss M1070 transporter truck now.o_O Keeping em peeled IMG_9569.JPG

    Few additions to the stash, 3 that I've wanted to get my hands on for a while and a bonus mustang, couldn't resist the corsair with moto-tug the guy had 3 corsairs from Tamiya 15099711671151696240933.jpg . If anyone has any experience on these and what's a nice build please do let me know.
