Newsflash for the Taff contingent, anyone fancy a very cheap Revell 1:32 P-51D-5NA Mustang Aircraft Model, You'd might like to make your way across to Trago Mills Merthyr Tydfil, they've got a small stash of them for £9.19 , one of which has just been rehomed :)
Is it worth the two hour each way drive? :-D

Depends on the MPG of your transport :)

















Or if your better half issues instructions that you're taken them, in that case, you might as well pick up a kit or two :)
 
A mate of mine once drove an hour and a half each way to a show just to get a sheet of transfers, which he could have mail ordered. Because he wanted them NOW.

The w@nker.
What else did he get, apart from the transfers and a day out :)

well you can't beat a bit of pre planning can you.

the gearbox is in, needs weathering, if the term weathering applies to something inside, oil, grease, gun fumes, petrol fumes, sweat,that's still weathering, even if it is out of the weather.
 
Its more or less in one piece, just needs a final polish once its been washed

Edit, and yes, I did remember to bung some weight into the nose, small screws, lead wire, filler.....anything that could be wedged in forward of the front wheel mounting

I've used .36 calibre lead pistol balls, since giving up black powder shooting, really handy nose weights, and shotgun shot are great too, nice and weighty and squish into milliput really well. Can't have too much nose weight, well you can, but you'd run out of space.
 
Is that the old version or the new one? Anyway I thought you thought Revell were the spawn of satan
They are the spawn of Satan, however, for less than a tenner :)

It's also the new tool, the same one they were showing off at Telford last year

Looks ace.........for to much for me to try

Hence using rolled up wire :)
