Make the others jealous

Recommended Posts

Cooooooooooooooooool!

 

I just talked the fiance into going to see this with me tomorrow night! 

 

 

 

I think the only reason she agreed was that its at the "Alamo Draft House" where they serve you food and alcohol right in your movie seat at table in between two people. I think her thoughts were "with a rum milkshake I can sit through anything!"

I bought the He 111 from a guy that build the He 111 Z.

He incluided all the leftovers from that build,added MasterCasters weighted wheels,Eduard interior SA,Eduard seatbelts,Eduard masks and AIMS decal.

 

All for.......40 Euros !!:yahoo:(46 $ )

 No pics I’m afraid but yesterday I went to a local charity shop and picked up the following :

 

Revell 1/32 BF109G-10 Erla

Zoukei Mura 1/32 TA152

Zoukei Mura 1/32 Heinkel HE219 Uhu (this also contained extra paint masks, resin wheels and 2 different sets of aftermarket decals).

 

All for the princely sum of £120!

I think I got a bargain...

If you got all that for £120, then you DEFINITELY got a bargain! 

Yes buddy!

10 for the 109

50 for the TA152

60 for the HE219

 

I did a double take when I saw the Zoukei Mura kits sitting there. HOWEVER there is 1 caveat here. In my excitement to snaffle these kits I failed to notice that the HE219 did not (unlike the other two kits) say COMPLETE on the 60 quid price sticker! I’ve looked through the box and maybe 30 percent of the parts are off the sprues but have been carefully put in resealable plastic bags so I’m pretty confident it is complete. A little preparatory painting has been done to some of the cockpit components but that’s about it. I’ve done a bit of research since getting the kits and I think I’ve saved at least £150 quid (maybe someone can confirm this). I suspect the aftermarket alone is worth at least £50..,

So, it looks going to that exhibition was actually a good idea. ;-)

Hi,

 

It was.

 

I just didn't expect that much snow once I passed Brussel.It took me 2 1/2 hours from Oostende.

 

But it was worth the trip.

Indeed!

 

I only took the E42 and saw six car accidents on my way! For a weird reason, the weather is always bad on the weekend of that exhibition.

 

Cheers

If you're missing any parts for the 219, Z-M is very good about supplying spare sprues (for a price, of course).

Erwin, I am happy for your good fortune and I am confused.  The man built a He-111Z.   He started with three kits but only in the end needed two kits for his model.  You bought the third kit with extras.   Was the original plan to make a "Twilling" what-if?  Or did he just burn himself out on the Zwilling and decided that he did not want to build another?  A Zwilling in the display cabinet, IMHO begs for another He-111 with the new V-1 from Special Hobby slung under one wing; just me thinking.

He showed pictures of the He 111 Z.

 

Maybe he was tired of building He 111's that he sold the third kit.

 

Whatever his reason was,I got a great bargain.:thumbsup:
