Technically, this first one isn't part of what I brought back from Telford, as I had ordered it five weeks ago from Hobby Link Japan.  But the nice postman chose this weekend to leave it in my safe place, ready for me to find when I got back home yesterday, so here it is.

Yes, it's a French WWII bomber!  But not any old bomber, this is the first allied aircraft to bomb Berlin on the night of 7/8th June, 1940, thus earning it's place in military history.

So, the haul itself, un-bagged an spread across my lounge.  Bit scary, seeing it like this.

Some were on pre-order from Flory Models PM store, a few others pre-ordered from Hannants, the rest was whatever took my fancy as I wandered around, thinking, 'Oh, that looks nice,' or 'Yes, I'll have one of them!'

This will be my entry into the Flory Models Mig SIG.

This will be one of my entries into the Flory 'Bulge to Berlin' SIG.

I'll bet a good few of you picked up one of these.

Some other random picks,

A couple of Revell golden oldies.

I have several Nichimo kits in my stash, and despite their age they have some beautiful detailing.

This book was stupidly expensive, but is signed by the author, and is very nice indeed.

m_20191111_102330.jpg 

Some more books.

m_20191111_102351.jpg  m_20191111_102409.jpg  m_20191111_102429.jpg 

Some quality tools from Phil's Dutch lady friend.  Dspiae circle cutter and p.e. folder.  She also gave me some Dutch biscuits, too.  Very nice!

m_20191111_102459.jpg 

One of those spray turntable thingies.

m_20191111_102515.jpg 

A loose handful of 502 oils.

m_20191111_102640.jpg 

I have some Polish, Dutch and French aircraft in my stash, so these Hataka sets make perfect sense.

m_20191111_102707.jpg 

A couple of resin bits.  On the left is a 1/72  B-17/YB-40 conversion set, something I have been hunting for all year, and on the right a 1/35 Mg-15 for the previously shown Storch.

m_20191111_102728.jpg 

And finally...

a mug!  And yes, I think I may be!

m_20191111_102754.jpg 

Now I just have to find homes for all of it!

That's what my fellow club members kept saying, every time I returned to our table with another bag of goodies, 'Hoy, leave some for the rest of us!'  I then had to spend yesterday completely tearing my stash apart and rebuilding and extending it, to get everything in.  When I first moved into the place I currently rent about a year ago, my stash looked like this.

Tucked under the stairwell in the lounge.  It grew!

After a while I got a bit obsessive/compulsive, and decided to group all the manufacturers together in stacks, like all the Airfix, Hasegawa and Zvezda in one pile, depending on how big that pile became, and where it would fit.

However, before I even left for Telford, there was precious little space left anyway.  So yesterday, I had to extend, to the top of the display cabinet!

Notice I still managed to keep kit's of a maker together.  Fortunately I will be moving house soon, to a bigger pad, so I'll have lots of fun building my stash from scratch with more room to spread it out!

Nice stuff !!! Love the Fokker G-1A ... looks really cool. ICM artbox are also very nice (they also make nice WWII german trucks... love them). The 502 oils are one of those things I also want to put my hand on. They looks fantastic. I bought a DSPIE single blade cutter and a drill a few months ago. They are awsome. Well you must be happy and I can't wait to see you building one of these. Congratulations.
