Another Crazy Project: Cold War Planes

I cannot really justify this at all but at the same time I could not help myself. Three Tamiya kits for a tenner from Wonderland Models at Xmas .. I had bought them before I knew what I had done, a Christmas present to myself along with some other Colonial stuff. In fairness I had walked by a huge stack of these models a few months previously and these were the tail end and I figured they would not be around for a third visit (see below, beautiful looking kits it has to be said):

The IL-28 in particular is a classic sinister Cold War piece of kit. Maybe you will see it flying over Afghanistan perhaps?

Those Tamiya kits are very nice. I used the Mirage, Phantom, MiG-21 and MiG 29 when I did my Flames of War Arab-Israeli project. Robust enough for wargaming too.

Cheers Natholeon

When I saw Tamiya I knew it would be quality
I resisted a Mig-19 the other day - call it the call of the scale creep!

1/72 to 1/144 but with 1/100 in between, then there is 1/200 from BRS
