Good question. She'll probably say something about boys and their toys, shake her head and go back to whatever she was doing. She's gotten used to it now.

Having been robbed of my airbrushing space by the kids returning early from Uni I decided to order a spraybooth. After a bit of research I plumped for one from a company called Bartsharp as it's about 40% bigger than the standard versions and shifts 9m3 of air per minute. They were waiting for new stock when I ordered which took a while due to the current situation but it arrived yesterday. Service was great as they kept in touch throughout and even phoned to talk through the shipping options. I also ordered a 4m tumble dryer hose to use with it so I can work in the family room and vent through the patio doors.

Has full LED lighting which is also adjustable so should hopefully do me for the foreseeable future.

Also got this for my birthday, so I'm going to build it straight away and paint and weather it at the same time as the AMX-30B2 I've got on the go. Hopefully get back to the CHET as well.

Nice Martin. Just such a cool design. Who else would design a tank to look like a block of cheese! 

Based on the typo I guess it's a Trumpeter kit?

Looks like the Lancia Stratos of tanks, is there an Alitalia livery with extra headlights and a 'Rally Monte Carlo' badge in the box :D?

Cheers Rob

There's an idea. The Stratos is one of my favourite cars.

It was a long wait, but today, my often 'I might buy one'-AEG showed up on my doorstep. I was so eager to build the AEG, but after browsing through the sprues, I'm a little afraid :icon_eek:. This will settle for sure after some Martinis.

This completes my panic buys after the WNW Desaster, which actually doubled my WNW stash, but now I'm satisfied, there are only one or two WNW kits, which I would consider to buy, but not desperately.

That 103 is bonkers (IMHO) it uses it suspension to elevate or depress the barrel..........

Most likely it'll be an Academy kit as Tamiya doesn't make a two seat Viper. 

Although you could use the Isracast 2 seat conversion on a Tamiya kit

At the same time, I got a package from Harv for my two boys.

They've already decided who's building what. Thanks Harv for your generosity and I'll let you know how it goes.

I as given a voucher for the LHS back in March for my birthday.  Got some Tamiya paint, and this:

tamiya-35-german-8ton-semi-truck-20mm_1_

I know it's an oldie.  But the crew makes it twice as interesting as one without.
