It's the pigeons that have to worry lol

But as well as that there have been some more acquistions.

A new drill set and Archimedes drill 

Some Vallejo paints

Upgrade parts for the Challenger 2 (more to order)

Oh and I've been asked to build a Ship for a railway client!

That's the ex-Matchbox (now Revell) 1/72nd Flower Class Corvette..

 

I thought I saw a light at the end of the tunnel, it was some ###### bringing me another loco!!

My sole aim at the weekend was to buy a Revell M48 to sit next to the Tamiya M60 on the shelf. But I sort of got distracted...

 

1/72 Airfix F-86F 'The Huff'...for the #2 Italian decal option

1/72 Airfix Tomahawk IIB 'Pennant' box

 

And to compound matters on the way home I donated some pennies to a Charity for another 1/72 Airfix Tomahawk IIB, this time a 'Sharkmouth' starter box. 

 

So I still haven't completed that tank pairing. But I do now have 4x P-40B/Tomahawk/Hawk 81s in the stash to add to the P-40(sans suffix) trainer conversion I have on the shelf.

 

Maybe next week....

Technically not an acquisition, but a commission for one of my Railway Clients - a rather big ship, 1/72nd Scale Flower Class Corvette arrived and a freebie for my stash a very old Airfix Short Stirling he's given me - the box is a bit battered but the contents are still sealed..

 

.. may well do a captured colour & decal scheme on it..

 

 

Other acquisitions have been, new bottles of Micro Sol & Micro Set, more upgrades for the Challenger 2 (wheels and suspension) and couple Pilot fine silver & gold paint pens.

 

Speaking of the Challenger 2, what's the Humbrol colour number for the Desert Sand?
