Make the others jealous

Recommended Posts

Yet another kit from my ongoing deal(s) with LSP_Ray. While I have this same vehicle as a Tamiya version, that kit suffered from a severely short shot front fender, almost impossible for me to fix. Since I have sort of a "thing" for SPAA weapons, this kit, weighing roughly two pounds, sure fits the bill, and I'm thrilled to have it. Thanks a bunch, Ray.

WW2 and/or modern? Guns only or missles too?

If you're referring to me, WWII only, and only guns. That still leaves a fairly decent selection though.

Jeff, I was at The Spare Time Shop in Marlboro Mass. on Saturday, they have one on the shelf. Have sone WNW's too. I grabbed a D5a and a Pfalz.  Regards, Pete in RI

Hey Pete, sorry for the late reply, I only just saw it now, sounds like a good shop that one, I wish I had something like that near me!...I may end up getting the Revell re-box of it, Ive been reading some reviews, and it seems like it may be alright.


Cheer's Pete,

No Pete, I'm in Australia, and the cost to get anything sent from the U.S. to Aus is astronomical!....its all good, as I said, I'll probably grab the Revell one, its a re-boxing of the Dragon kit anyway, but wont be for a while yet, as I've bought a couple of kits and a fair bit of modelling supplies lately, so I have to take it easy for a while now.:D

This time last year, I had a pair of Tamiya F-16s to keep me on the level during the lockdown. 
I have a sense of deja vu, as I approach that anniversary. My pit of ‘vipers’ grows somewhat. 



I currently have an IAF ‘Sufa’, and an Alaskan Aggressor built. I’m a fan of colourfully marked jets, so these 3 will be painted with the same theme. 
After a paint disaster, I’m rebuilding ‘Zeus’ from the single seater. The whole finish was riddled with cracks and splits owing to impatience and not enough cure time.



I’ve got some schemes in mind for the pair of twin sticks.

First one will definitely be painted as...



I love the camp’ and the colourful tail. 

The second one presents a conundrum. I primarily wanted to attempt a Thunderbirds spare/media trips jet, but I’m unable to decide if I’m brave/skilled enough to try and pull a masking job off. So I’m leaning more towards either....

One more SMI Library (Kagero) book added to the pile. Only a couple more to grab now, as it looks like there have been no newer issues for quite some time, so hopefully my collection will be complete, sooner than later. Not yet in the database, but soon shall be.
