I just received GWH's P-61, "The Last Shoot Down."



I can't wait to get started on it. Peeking in the box it is a beautiful kit.

I finally got tired of the photo cube that I built not easy to pull out of the closet. This came today.

Recently took advantage of Wingnut Wings water damaged stock sale and bought the FE2.B. It arrived today with a surprise in the box! A copy of Windsocks SE.5a Squadrons sent with compliments. Thank you Wingnut Wings! Easily my favourite model company.



The water damage was simply some staining on the bottom of the box and creases in the corners. The contents, sprues, instructions and decals were all sealed in their bags and were of course pristine. A shame about the box top, but a small price to pay for getting the kit at a lower price.
A little scared by the complex rig, but with practice on some others I reckon I can tackle it. Eventually.

Havent bought much in a while kit wise though I did buy a water damaged WNW kit, the DH.9a and it was a great deal with perfect contents and the Se.5 book seen above.

But seeing as I just got around to figuring out how to use Imgur and with this arriving today I decided to share the joy!

Ive wanted to build an Israeli spitfire or two and this gets me there with 6 options! Meaning some left over decals and exhaust for a 2nd kit down the line!

It may be over by now, it was over a month ago.

Update: I just checked out of curiosity. All damaged aircraft kits appear sold out. They do have some of the water damaged WWI figure vignettes still at about $100 off retail. Check out shop.wingnutwings(dot)com. It has all the current offerings in a simple scroll down list

Darn it, I would like to try one of those WNW kits, but that really isn't my scale, and as such the price is way too high for me. Would have been the perfect opportunity to try one, oh well, maybe some other time.
