I have the Glencoe France still in shrinkwrap that I found whilst on a trip to Victorian Hobby Centre in Melbourne a few years ago.

It is sitting in the stash next to the Gunze Sangyo QE II

Thought I had posted this already. I no longer have any 'grail' kits. I picked up the 1/72 Boeing 737 at Telford for £15 last year.

All the best.

Well done, Greg. Much sought after, few connect. And it I did the math correctly a bargain at that.

When are you going to build it? I sure hope you are, and it would be a blast to follow it here :grin:

Very much a bargain. they usually go for around the £50 mark this side of the pond.
I've decided i have another now grail kit. The Monogram F16XL in 1/72. I rather stupidly gave my part built one away some years ago.

All the best.

Airfix 1970's boxing of HMS Iron Duke...it was my first ship model, so even though it probably doesn't age well (and I have seen the same tired mouldings of said kit over the years which makes me pine for my original one) I would still love another crack at it.

The Victor is to be re-issued by Revell in February next year so don't go paying silly money for one.

Revell announced at SMW they were re-popping it in February for £19.99.

Mr. Models @ SMW had 2x Revell Victors and priced them @£49.95. The biggest surprise is someone was daft enough to buy one.

Hi folks. I got my paws on the Monogram F16XL some time ago (£5 from a fellow modeller at my local club). The only thing I am after now is a Mach 2 RB57 big wing Canberra. As it happens I have one on order so a distinct lack of wanted/needed grail kits here, for now at least ;-) :lol:

All the best.

Greg
