Well there are some great subjects being batted around here. An amusing read.
Just to reiterate Si's intention. Animal is a generic term for all animalia which is to say any multi celled organisme that breathes oxygen, consumes organic matter, can move and capable of sexual reproduction. So says the dictionary.
I to have a bit of a mixed stash and as of yet have no idea what I will chip in with, If I chip in that is.
An irritating and amusing thing I have noticed, even though (according to the misses) I have more models in the stash than the local hobby shop, All the ones that I really want to do are still in the hobby shop and not the stash! Grr.
@spanner570 Please build that Italian Sparrowhawk I soooo want to see you paint that camouflage!

Cheers Si. :smiling3:

By all accounts it's a great kit, so much so that I will build it straight OOB with no embellishments.

Time is flying by Gents and I'm still not sure what to build for the GB. Stuck between this,

Storch.jpg

Or maybe this one,

salamander 3.jpg

I think one of these would be better than all the animals with tracks and wheels that I have in the stash. Too many Tiger I's Late and II's both Porsche and Henschel, Panthers D, A's, G's, Berge, Jagd, II and a Krupp Hybrid, Marders I, II and III, Luchs, Brummbär, various Maultier's, Bison I and a Nashorn...……...Stash got too big. I never should have quit smoking…………………………………….

Mr. Benson,

Do you have an idea of what the two kits are, that I am undecided about???

I do have another Panther kit coming in the morn, so you are not encouraging me Sir. Evilbay does enough of that already…………...

Hey Bro,

The Storch was my choice all along, but I wanted to keep Si and Stevie in suspense for a while!!! I'll have to see which camo I do as I also have to get paint while I'm at the SMC. I have no colors for wing thingys at all. I will also have to check the decals as it might only have markings for the desert.

I will drop you a mail tomorrow………….

Prost
