Bag The Hun Soviets [3]


The Bring and Buy at Colours yesterday turned up a fantastic deal on a selection of Scotia Collectair, H&R and Leading Edge aircraft. I splashed out forty quid in the process but got a great deal, so I'm very happy with the new additions to the leadpile. I don't usually bother with the Bring and Buy but this time, I'm glad I did for a change.

I ended up with ten Scotia Tu-2 light bombers, six Scotia DB3 medium bombers, three Scotia Il4 medium bombers and three massive Scotia Pe-8 heavy bombers for the Soviet VVS. I also bundled in nine Leading Edge Me109G6, eight Scotia He162 Volksjagers and four Heroics and Ros CR42's, which will be added to the late war Luftwaffe and Malta Italians respectively. 

I could easily have added more to the haul, as there were numerous packs of Leading Edge German aircraft and some really nice Scotia Soviet planes on offer, but I decided to call a halt in the name of decency. This lot would put me back at least sixty quid, not including postage, so a bit of a result to say the least. Anyway, they'll help to add some serious punch to my mid/late war Soviet air forces.
