i've spent a couple of days thinking more about what kit i'll build as my usual stuff! i've decided on something WW1, smallish, with two wings and rigging. now whats poles apart from that? something modern, or something with more than one engine, so my list is this-
1/72 italeri A10
1/72 revell shackleton
1/72 revell halifax
1/72 revell heinkel 177
1/72 airfix lancaster
of course i'm still open to any more suggestions of different modelling genres
over to you guys!
p.s. i'm changing my isp sometime in the next 24 hours from the date of this post so i might be off the air for the next day or so

i was hoping someone would suggest the shack! i've got a couple of p/e sets for it as well, plus i took a lot of pics of the one at newark air museum, both the inside and out.

The A-10 sounds like a good idea. Modern, twin engined, but still a plane .
Perhaps a figure would be more poles apart .

yeah i went literally to the other end of the spectrum when i was trying to work out what i could do but only in aircraft (opposites in size, or ends of history) but i do have a figure up my sleeve that i'd forgotten i had.
so........what do you reckon?
figure, yay or nay?

if its figures you want, its figures you'll get! i've had these at the back of the cupboard since about 1995

and it seems at least two of them did get built, with another left like this for the last 16 odd years
