Really? End of Jan and this hasn't been started? Did I miss the post that says we're not doing one? If so Paul, feel free to delete this one.

I am not building much, but this seems to be leaving a bit of time to find nice things that I could build, some maybe even for Telford. Now I've seen the discussion thread I've another excuse to venture online. May the Visa be with me...

Anyway here's my December/ January haul....

The transkit came with the M8B kit and contains a one piece body shell, and wheel inserts

Ah! The first to (admit) buying stuff!!

Like the Scammell Scarab. That must be quite a scarce kit?

The Scarab will be fun I think Grant, I'm thinking of building the brewery version, not the BR one. The price on the bay was not very high, so if it's scarce the demand for it isn't there.

With a build up like that, you've left yourself very little alternative but to post now...

Excellent swag Nick, love the Scarab. I remember getting one of those as kid for my nascent model railway, probably with the same style paper header. Happy days!

Come on THC, show us what you got!

The Ryan was an addition to my little 'Trailblazers' collection of old Frog kits that I missed when originally released. There's a much more recent kit by RS, but I like the idea of building the old Frogs. The P-40 is for my sharkmouth collection, the Harrier an oops moment at Hobbycraft and nothing was going to stop me from getting the Takom V2 set.

I said if Wingnut Wings ever did a Sopwith Camel I would get one. They did, so I did. It's a remarkable kit in just about every sense.

I was quite keen on the idea of the DH2 and one of the Fokker E series monoplanes, getting this has got me thinking about it again...oh Lordy where is this going to end up?!

If anybody would like to see the contents I could be persuaded to take a few pics.

There's all sorts of other naughtiness been going on recently. :wicked:

Still on a binge, amongst other things I'm now on a mission to collect the Matchbox/Revell 1/76 armour kits.

This Revell 1/48 Fw190D is actually an Eduard re-box. If you want more than one the best deal is to buy the Eduard Dual Combi, but I won this one on ebay for under 15.00 posted, so it was a bit of a steal.

Posted Image

Finally the latest Eduard 1/72 Fw 190A iteration, couldn't resist the box art (which you can now buy as a print). As 1/72 kits go these really are the bees. I did an in-box of the Royal Class edition here, this kit contains the same sprues, PE cockpit parts & masks.

Realised I've not posted to this thread for 2017 and it's May.

Trying to post now would be very interesting and quite enlightening.

Ooops

I have a number of acquisitions that are, um, unaccounted for here and it would take a while to post them all up. :whistle:

BTW THC what do make of this? I acquired this off of a dodgy looking geezer at Southern Expo, a bloke calling himself Vince, trading under the dubious name of 'Modelsforsale'.

I reckon the hairy little bugger should have rung me first.

Go on how much did you pay him for it if you can tell.

Do the Revell/Matchbox 1:76 still come with the bases?
Remember them well :)

It was second hand, box is in a bit of a state, probably one out of a collection he's inclined to offload cheap.

Yep, absolutely as original, except the plastic is all one colour.
