Nabbed this one from Webby from his Plamo website, he had a one day sale on sat so got a good price on it, have seen G1's one a few times and always liked the look of it so thought I would get one too.
Thanks Terry, the second page with the Caunter scheme was what I was taking about with the camo scheme painting plans, thanks good to know.
They don't seem to have gone to the same extent for the late war German Factory camos for the Panther & King Tiger etc.
That kit looks awesome.. The old brit jets make me feel like a kid again (I grew up around living close to of the airfields in England). The Vulcan especially gives me goosebumps as I sat at the end of the runway and saw them take off over me so many times!1
Maybe if the post war GB happens I will attempt something!
I'm back from my trip to Europe and Japan, and with goodies. I got these two fro Volks in Akihabara:
I want to build the Pfeil soon. It looks to be a very nice kit. Volks is a nice store, but it has limited aircraft/tanks etc. Mostly the focus is on gundam and dodgy anime models of suspiciously young looking women with huge breasts. Akihabara is amazing for hobby/Otaku stuff though. Some very nice second hand videogames stores. Japan overall was incredible (especially the tonkatsu and okonomiyaki in Osaka). Going back in a couple of years hopefully.
The real money got spent on trains though. This was the haul from Tokyo, Osaka and Munich:
We got a JR rail pass and spent our time in Japan riding the Shinkansen and visiting various places. Sometime during that I decided I had to build a Japanese layout, so I got some stuff for that. Japan is amazing for model rail as it is a huge hobby there. It's cheap and model train stores are everywhere (including in the big department stores). I literally accidentally walked into one at one point. I got the white box z21 thing as a part of a set in a store at the Hauptbahnhoff in Munich. This was one of the things that I aimed to buy on the trip: it is a train controller that allows for easy set up of wifi/app control of a layout.
HAHA Hadley is selling organs again... After seeing what they are worth I've decided unless I end up completely destitute I am never selling my one.
Had a couple more arrivals today, sent friday from BNA and arrived this morning, mind you it was only a couple of bucks more for the fast courier.
Always liked the look of this one and they had it discounted a fair bit so pulled the trigger.
This one, I wanted to get one when Mighty ape had them for $50 but missed out and they have gotten hard to track down. I noticed BNA had it so thought I'd better get one before they disappear again.
