AK47 Airpower

I took the boys to see Kung Fu Panda 2 in Eastleigh today and, on the way to the cinema, found  a new model shop in one of the side streets. It was mainly model railways and RC cars but there was a decent selection of plastic kits and a good range of scenics too.

I picked up a 1/100th scale Tamiya kit of an IL28 Beagle for use with my prospective AK47 Dictatorship army, for the extortionate price of £2.99. I already have a couple of these kits stashed in the loft so they may all end up as scenery on an airstrip of some sort, once I get round to scratchbuilding one.

I was inspired by the erstwhile gaming opponent, Jon, whose terrain modelling skills have resulted in a number of top notch bits of AK47 scenery, including a full on airport with control tower, departure lounge and even an airliner.

Anyway, for £2.99 it's a bit of a bargain, even if it gets consigned to the big box of bits in the loft along with the rest of the squadron.
