Two newbies in the stash. Well, one a new kit the other a re-tread of a golden oldie.
Academy 1/72 F2H-3 Banshee (a lovely new kit)
Revell 1/144 Boeing 727-100 (ERRRRR where's the glazing....ho wait.... yep. it's that old a kit it never had any)

All the best.

Greg

Another Bandai refugee from Japan, although this time via the US and thankfully no customs charges! :grin:
Having built the 'palm-size' version (1/144 I'm guessing), I fancied seeing what the 1/48th version of the AT-AST would be like :)
And it looks pretty darn good!

The second arrival is another War of the Worlds themed kit, which may be used for my planned diorama of the Thunder Child attacking the Martians. I happened across an eBay seller who is selling wargaming kits under the name 'All Quiet on the Martian Front'. The tripods are more like the ones in the modern remake of the film (the one with shorthouse Cruise) than the Jeff Wayne style, but are a heck of a lot cheaper than any kit I've seen before. This set of three is about £30, and they will stand about 5" tall

Nice scores Gents,

New kits turned up in the post today - two Hobby Boss Harvards, which look like good fodder for the Blitzbau next month as they only seem to have about a dozen parts. One is going to be a camouflaged example from the Katangese Air Force, the other a NMF Belgian AF machine that supported the Paras at Stanleyville.

I picked this up thinking it might be one of Revells newer F-4 but it has turned out to be an old Monogram kit, which is not a bad thing, although the detail has raised lines it is quite good and you get two pilots one in the cockpit and the other walking out to the a/c plus you get a full bomb load.

I'm thinking of building it as one of the RAF F-4j a/c that the RAF bought to top up their numbers.
