For a lot of people in the Northern Hemisphere, the winter months can be long and draggy. Sunshine is at a premium (if you see it at all), there’s usually cruddy weather and driving isn’t exactly trouble-free. Add to this the inevitable arrival of post-Christmas bills and a return to the “normal” routine, and you’ve got a recipe for some serious doldrums.

Thankfully, my friend Alan took it upon himself to send my “January Blahs” packing by doing some packing of his own! In the mail near the end of January I got a surprise load of kits from him! You want to talk about a great way to end a day? Getting a box of awesome old kits in the mail is definitely a good way to do it!

Thanks, man!

Check out some of the cool stuff I got at the link below, and don’t forget to vote on which one I do in-depth first!

I know, it was quite a thrill to find all this awesomeness just waiting in the mail!

Thanks for the vote. I'm surprised that the two biplanes are leading the charge!

What a great winter therapy!! Would be the Blackburn Shark for me, classic Frog, unusual subject and I made loads of Frog kits back in the day. Never had loads of detail, but always captured the look of the subject. Still have a couple of Novo repops to do (including awesome Vickers Vimy)
