    Default Saw these in Smiths

    These might be useful to keep the little 'uns quiet on Xmas day while you listen to the Queen's speech.





    They both have a difficulty rating - I think that's difficulty in construction, not difficulty in believing they are supposed to be what they say they are....

    Speaking of Vulcans, Airfix are working on a brand new mould in 1/72 scale of the 'Tin Triangle':

    Aaah, I did not see this kit for years - they were very typical for socialistic times (because LEGO was from evil West!). Vulcan looks superb (really admire how designer of the kit constructed elegant shapes of wings), but do not expect easy kit building - you must think in a very different way during its constructions (keep space for screwdrivers, start with right pieces etc.).

    And one eye candy as a bonus: Stahlstadt from The Begum's Fortune (J. Verne)
