For those that may be interested in such things Aldi are including some 1/72 Airfix Starter in their specials for next Sunday, 20/11/2016, for €7.99 each. choose from Spitfire/Mustang/Hurricane/Gnat/Cromwell/Tomahawk.

Also in Lidl from today there are a selection of Revell Star Wars build + play kits for €9.99(normally north of €20.00 each) with sound and lights effects where appropriate. choose from TFA-MF/First order Tie Fighter/Poe Damron's X-wing.

Happy shopping!! :D

Trying to decide whether the savings in cost of kit/s will leave more money for groceries or the savings on cost of groceries will leave more money for kit/s .Ignoring the 'cost of kit/s leaves less money for food for family' option .

Win/win !

Lidl Leixlip had two or three of the black XWings this morning .Theyre pre coloured /painted plastic but certainly keenly priced especially taking into account the on board electronics .

Just saw, on Facebook, that the Aldi starter kits are retailing for £4.99 in the Aldi stores in the UK.

Somebody in Aldi doesn't understand the (now much reduced) exchange rate between the Euro and sterling (especially as Airfix kits come out of the UK)....or is seeking to fleece Irish modellers..

Need a second work station in the attic now, delighted?

Lads, if anyone spots the Revell Millennium Falcon in Lidl, could you grab me one please?
Well-impressed with the one made by Vinnie's young fella at the Dublin meet today!

Four big €35 lights with magnifier (x2.25 power ) in Lidl Leixlip at 7pm last night .Was tempted but they're so darn BIG ! I'd say you'd need a designated hobby room to make them practical .They clamp onto table ( don't 'stand ') so you need a good chunk of press space to store it when not in use Id imagine ( or is there a lot of 'air' in box ?
