No one's shopping?

Well, I do and when I came home today from an expo near my hometown I suddenly found this awesome dual combo in my bag. Don't know how it got there ....

Excellent find D! I rarely buy my source material new LOL.

And Torsten surrrrreeeee no idea at all! It must've jumped in while you weren't looking (yeah right!).

Bob my friend the mojo does come back you just need something to excite it. I've spent several months with very little desire to build paint decal or weather. I am now however back on track so to speak, all those kits with meatballs should provide inspiration they are mighty tasty!

Hi there

This wonderfully generous donation arrived today at my Oxfam Bookshop and I couldn't resist buying it as a slightly belated "birthday present to me". It wasn't cheap, but I've wanted a copy for years.

All the best

Some really good finds. Especially those books.

In amongst the usual Airfix and Revell kits, my local art shop had these on sale and for the price I couldn't say no. Only went in for a tube of oil paint!
Been looking for the Spitfire for a while and no way was I going to leave the Mirage. After all it's one of my favourite little jets.
It's the old Esci kit and comes with a decent little selection of optional stores and really nice looking decals. Italeri even included a little colour booklet of beautifully drawn profiles for all the marking options. Looking forward to building this one.
