Make the others jealous

well whilst it won’t excite many to me it’s confirmation that I’m back within the 1/32 fold after selling most of my prior stash and dabbling with 1/48. Whilst I did complete a couple of 1/48 jets I just couldn’t get used to the smaller size pieces after so long in larger scales. These join the 3 kits I’d kept back, 2 Tamiya Spitfires and the Tamiya Mosquito. There’s a Tamiya A6M2 literally on the slow boat from China. I was going to put a cap limit if 10 kits on my new stash but the FW 190 for £20 and the 2 Revell 109’s for £16 each had to be purchased now. The FW will be a regular A-8, the 109’s will be long term stash queens until Amur Reaver bring out their G-6 corrections again which they confirmed they plan to do but no time frame at the moment when I asked. Though 1 may get one of the AIMs early G mod sets. We shall see. The HGW 109E will be a Battle of Britain 109E-4 when it gets done. The price was a little steep but the Cyber Hobby kit is getting thin on the ground and costs in the £40-£50 range anyway so add the resin exhausts, yahu panel, HGW belts and rivet set and it probably costs the same so I went for it. Not sure how limited of a limited edition it is but thought best not dither and went for it. 
Have kept a few 1/48 jets as distraction builds.

Added a Tamiya F4U-1A to the above pile this morning. Hoping I didn’t sell the Dana Bell Corsair book when I sold off my F4U-1D last year. Have a feeling I did. I had a lot of scribbled notes in there. Now what to do about the landing lamp on the lower wing. Anyone know from what Bureau number onwards it was deleted? From memory the F4U-1D lower wing part has no landing lamp but there’s the rocket stub details that would need removing there so deleting it on this kit or ordering the F4U-1D lower wing parts both mean sanding away some nice surface detail which I know I won’t be able to restore. 
 

Found my book and my notes. Light was deleted from Bureau Number 56266 and FG (Goodyear production numbers?) 76140.

After a long search, I finally got this from an italian seller via Ebay. Price was not cheap, but just about acceptable.

While most three-engined planes don't look too sexy in my eyes, I find this one pretty hot B)

Man, I'd love to have the Eddie pilots. Any chance you'd sell them?

Brian, I suspect the Eddie pilots are none other than the British Pilots released by ICM  with new heads (Sgt Smith in Max’s Gladiator).

The Hs.129B-2 Finally arrived at one of my local (Australian) hobby stores ... So ... having it sent, along with a couple of other ZM kits they held back for me - It arrived at the post office a day or two ago. I'd like to say that I'm now up to date with the entire 1/32 ZM collection ... except they sneakily tucked another couple of Skyraider kits in before the first of the Hs.129 kits.

 

Never mind ... as soon as those rock up to one of my other suppliers ... I'll be sorted ...

Looks great Kevin! Do they come prepainted?

 

Cheers,  Tom

 

Yep, pre-printed and all skanked up.

Exactly. All things considered, most are fairly inexpensive too, which is a real plus as far as I'm concerned. I'll be buying more, for sure.

Where did you get these from?  Is it strictly air to air photography or are there pics from the aircraft on the ground being serviced?

 

So envious of you finding these, I love the Swiss F-5’s and Patrouille Team!
