So I did a thing...


Mighty ape had a price drop to about $20 less what they are easily available for online and I used some credit card points so it ended up being a rather cheap kit.

Nice looking kit that! Flory is about to start his Vid build of it next week I think. Mine is sitting on the shelf looking at me with "Come Build Me" eyes!
I just bought one of these from Hobbyeasy

Come on Kane, do it! It's such a good price too! Nos and I are just playing devils advocate. Could do a triple build... Just tell Kelly that Corran and I made you do it...

Corran, I've been eyeing up the AMK Foxhound for a while, been looking for the special edition with the metal landing gear, canopy seals and a couple of other bits for a reasonable price. You can buy the extras separately, which is a good idea because a common issue with it is the kit gear is too weak for the model.

Cheers for the heads up. I have ordered window tint for it (and for the F-14 and F-4)And gasket decals, I looked at the metal gear because I had my suspicians about that... I will order some. Paid $103 NZD Landed... I thought that was a pretty good price!

That's not too bad. I think the cheapest I've seen the special edition one for is about $130-140 landed. You can also get the extras for about $25-30 bucks on their own so might end up going that way.

Some decals arrived, now I can do the VAQ-209 Vader scheme for both the Kinetic Prowler and Hasegawa Growler.

When I finish my study for the year, I will be spending more time at the bench and I'll be looking real hard at getting this kit. Maybe I'll just get it now in anticipation and go into overdraft :D

While overseas recently I walked for nearly 50 minutes to find this model shop so I HAD to buy something. Must admit their kitset range was limited as half the shop was radio control stuff so I settled on this for just over $30.



It will be finished as an RNZAF 'what if' as the RNZAF was interested in acquiring the Mitchell but US offered the Ventura. Now would we have set them up for bombing or ship attack with lots and lots of .50s in the nose - Hmmmm

Big kitty, Airfix twins, B-25 . . . all nice goodies!

I brought home the 1:48 TAM P-51D and ICM's Spit Mk XVI, yesterday.

not technically 'stash' but latest commissions from Kevin.

The box has since been 'modified' to SOP, to allow top-open access.
Shall be a nice 'doppel bau' with my old Airfix 1:48 P-51D.

Had these 2 arrive from luckymodel, theyve been sitting waiting for another kit since june and I got sick of waiting so canned the backordered kit (and ended up getting it cheaper anyway from Hobby City) and got thse here in less than a week.


This will be done as the below scheme.


And the backordered kit which was cheaper locally (how rarely does that happen!)

Been after one of these for a while now. Will be looking at some aftermarket for it I think.



I intend to build her as a Hellenic Airforce bird, unless another scheme catches my eye.

Now you can tell SWMBO that since you've got the book it's out of your hands about getting a tamiya cat... at least the little one is interested in the right sort of reading material!

Spencer gave me one of his F-14 books to read on the plane by from Telford. It's a great book! I just need to pull finger and finish my build.

I just received 1/48 Islander by Valom purchased off UK company on Ebay. Not a manufacturer I've even heard of before. First glance opening the box it looks pretty good. I purchased Israeli Air Force version but plan to finish it in Rhodesian Air Force colour scheme.
