Was quite shocked at the new stuff in there today (top of Mary St near Maplins/Smyths) .Id heard an inkling that there was a 1/32 He219 due and they have it -it looks huge.But the big shocker for me was a 1/32 Lynx helicopter ,yup 1/32 !!!I bet Airfix are sickened with their 1/48 one not out long!if I recall the big Lynx was a very reasonable sounding 25 euro -not sure on the He219 -it may have been 40-80 or even more?Dont remember .Theyre well stocked in there right now with Airfix and Revell along with many others including Roden WW1 stuff ,Tamiya,Monogram,Italeri etc .Well worth a look!Lots of interesting stuff including separate 1/48 Ju52s in civil and combat schemes .A few pricey big 1/32 Trumpeters including the dearest kit Ive ever had in my hands , a 180 euro (ouch!) 1/32 F18(I think it was )
Oh and they had new Airfix box art versions of Sunderland and ,eh ,some other old reliable reliable reboxing ,which would bring a tear to a glass eye !!!Nice times for modelling scene !

Was back in yesterday with the kids in tow and had another look.The He219 in 1/32 is 55 I think and the other Airfix classic with CGI graphics ALMOST as good as the old Roy Cross stuff is the WW1 bomber HP 0/400 (?).They have Academy and other brands as well as one mentioned above .They also have two of the new 1/144 scale Revell F16s (sadly only in aerobatic team colour scheme) .Its even more awesome than their Eurofighter Typhoon witha frankly mind blowing ejection seat (fourth pic down)

a lot of the detail visible in pic was good as invisible to the naked eye its so tiny!
They also had the rereleased Canberra PR9 from Matchbox in new Revell box and an Airfix 1/48 Canberra "B" along with the 'american' Martin B57 (not sure -think in 1/72)

Was there any sign of the Revell BSG bits being re-stocked?

It looks like a trip up to Mary Street would be worthwhile after the Dublin meeting next Saturday! It sounds like Banba/toymaster is worth a visit.

[Actually, thinking about it - it might be a bit safer going there from Temple Bar than going up to Parnell Square towards Blessington street,
or even down the quays past O'Connell Bridge down to Hawkins Street, in view of the potential "invasion" that seems to be planned by the
"northern brethren" into our fair city for next Saturday also. Mind you - based on past experience - it is the reaction from the other Northern
natives that is likely to be the more problematic. Anyone remember the "Love Ulster" riot????]

Best to stay away from these northern fanatics, whatever their background/opinion etc, if we can....

Unfortunately FiSe this isn't so much political banter as a necessary warning to anyone travelling to the Dublin meeting on Saturday that it may be very unsafe in parts of the city.

However, now that the information is out there we can get back to talking about Toymaster and their stock.

I am a bit confused... are we talking about 'One Direction' gig at The Point? Or about bunch of bargain hunters in Celtic jerseys? :$
Well, it doesn't matter at the end, as both of those are bloody disgrace ;)
