Good luck Rog! Hope you can get it worked out. 

Great call on the HK Lanc too. If you know which plane you're building, you may want to look at the Iconicair nose blister. It's the larger nose blister but without the holes that the kit one has.

Thanks for the well wishes and support guys!!

Carl ... Yeah I have the HKM Dambuster already - I figured the aircraft were new so no oil canning present on the chastise mission ... I was just waiting on the final market-ready rendition of the WNW Lanc' and the pricing before I made up my mind ... at least Neil might get a solid kick up in sales! - I hope so anyway.

Yep ... as soon as I have sorted another few financial bits and pieces I have to invest in a bunch of Iconicair goodies ... and also some crew!!

Rog :)

Rog, try to find the Red Kite book on the Dambusters Lancs.

It's got some great 3D images of the plane. It came out in 2018 so hopefully isn't hard to find if you don't have it already.

Way ahead of you Carl ;)

Arrived early September last year ... about the same time as the kit, I believe!

What's the car there? ... Looks like it might be an R32 from the shape of the flared guards and front end??

Yup, R32 GT-R. It's the Fujimi 1/12 kit that was reissued a couple years ago.

Went to my LHS today. They're open for curbside pickup so I did just that. I caved to Ernie's subtle persuasions and picked up the Ki-45.

Going to have to build it with the big nose gun.

I think that way it'll make a nice compliment to the Ju88 P-1 and Tse Tse Mosquito I plan to do as well.

He did indeed. Didn't help that I had a bit of disposable cash, the LHS had it in stock and the price was right. 

They are nice kits. I've got the He219 back on the bench as of last night so will be getting back to that one.

Not much into pre-assembled kits, but I'll make an exception. The smile wont come off my face!

Nice, I got mine three month ago and believe me I know about the smile :D. You got the new JL, very tempting, but I went for the very last JK edition. Seems we both skipped the Meng offering, though.

Cheers Rob

The only one tougher to find is the cast metal Britten.

My son has the new JL Unlimited very much like this one. It's got the Turbo four cylinder in it and it feels just like the 6cly version!

Family business then :D, mine has a 2,8 liter Diesel engine, with enough torque for our steep mountains. We have different engines here in Europe than the US Jeeps.

When someone says Landover to me, I think of a Series III Defender. Those in Canada are a premium vehicle and are at least 15 years old so it can be imported. 

A friend has a 110 two door and somehow we once got 8 of us with our mountain bikes all inside it. At least the drive was short.

Ahhh the Defender 90, love that vehicle. Too bad restrictions killed it here in the 90's.

Just leave 'em in the camo. Plenty on the roads here.

Army surplus , that makes sense, They come well maintained and cheap, in north America you pay fortune for them, $80000+ CAD easy.

Where would you go to even find them?  Never seen them advertised.
