First up came the B25 from Airfix. Then, while I was sniffing that plastic, another delivery brought a pot of Humbrol 94....and a Roden Gotha GV.

A couple more things over the weekend - Tamiya 1/24 scale Mercedes-AMG GT3 and 1/35 scale Archer SPATG and La Legende Heller (a 60th anniversary set containing the Heller 1/100 scale Caravelle(their first kit) and prototype Concorde and JC Carbonel's history of Heller (in French, so it might take me a while to read it)).

@peebeep - From the box art, I take it the Gnat has "Hot Shots" film markings? (Most obvious point being "THE NAVY" service titles if you've not seen the film)

@peebeep - Thanks; that's exactly what I meant, and the answer's yes it does.

Very nice!  I will get one, but wish they had done a later version.

This is rare these days for me, (only the 3rd kit I have bought in 8 years), (I have been married for 8 years), and bought it for several reasons. Firstly, I had a $50 Paypal voucher to use, and I'm bound to lose it, before, I could work out what to spend it on. Secondly, I have had my eye on this kit for a number of years, and it was not getting any cheaper.

Thirdly, the only way I can keep track of what models I have got, is to use the index of reference books, and this is the last Hawker Aircraft I had to collect, using this book as a reference:-





It lists 113 different type of Aircraft, that flew, during WW2, (or just prior, or after). Out of that 113, I have now collect 103. There are far more Aircraft that are not listed in this book, (my recently completed S23 just gets a mention, under the Sunderland page), as I have at least 4 British Aircraft, that are not in the book. Does anyone else do something similar to this, so they don't double up?
