Another stash question


Recommended Posts

That is a good point Mike, I've multiples of some A/C, but that choice is based on variables such as paint schemes, and armament. So, for my WWI stash, usually only one of each Brit type, yet "some" Albatrii, and those other Fokkers. Just too much variation to resist.

Exactly.  I have to admit my definition of "subject" is flexible.  For example in my book and for this purpose a P-51B is not the same as a P-51D, and in Spitfires or 109s it's down to individual sub-variants, but again for example an F4F (inc FM-1 & FM-2) is an F4F and I'll only ever build one at most.  No offence meant to anyone who's really into Wildcats.

Well, a Martlet and a Wildcat are two different aircraft. Wildcat -4: 2 row radial, 6 guns, heavy and slow, Definitive Martlet: big single row radial, 4 guns, fast and nimble.

The Americans lived with their Wildcats and developed tactics to make them work. The Brits loved their Marlets. Kicked some serious arse with them, too.

I agree completely, Mike, with every point. And to me, Ernie, a Wildcat and a Martlet are way too similar for me to ever build both. I'll be lucky if I ever build a Wildcat at all.

I feel much the same way. As far as I'm concerned, that's one specific aircraft kit that I will probably never own.

Some seriously funny post here Gents. English?!?!?, ask her how many shoes she can wear at the same time. Too funny.

 

I'm have my stash all over the damn place. My folks house, my house in the states. A modest but growing collection here in Singapore. Man my wife will seriously have fit seeing them here. Yikes!

 

Just rememmber guys; buy the kit's at a high price and sell them at a low price to your friends on LSP. It seems to makes the world go round. I bet I have 15 Hasegawa and Revell late model Bf109G's. If Tamiya ever came out with one, I'd be so screwed. Ha

 

I just ordered two of those WNW littler Fokkers! What was I thinking?!

I'm sure he meant to say Cymraeg........or is it Gymraeg?

 

 

The only Wales I know is Josey Wales.

 

Little country attached to the west of England. There's only 3 million of us but we all play rugby and like sheep.

Now THAT'S something I wouldn't be running around and shouting from the rooftops.

Not at the same time.

 

Rugby first, then sheep.

 

Maybe a bit of singing. "Delilah" is a good one, maybe "Bread of Heaven", Cwm Rhondda" and, of course, "Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau";

I live in Weston Super Mare, so I have a nice big chunk of Bristol channel that keep's me safe from all those sheep and Rugby songs.

 

Now, just need to do something about all the Bank Holiday Brummies!  :rofl:

 

Now, now, don't go insulting the Grockles!
