Those World Tank Museum sets have been listed for a long time. Good luck to him if he can find a sucker - I mean buyer - for them. :D

Note the seller "dazzling_deals_miami". Clearly, there must be a serious inflation problem in Florida. By my reckoning, it puts them just below Greece and Albania. :roll:

Not a stupid price, but an alternatively nice one...assuming you'd want 40 of the blighters...a box of S&M Models Viscount, for 'only' £119.60. (Works out at £2.99 each)...Hannants.

Just looked the advert up. The kits themselves are a fraction under 100 quid, the rest is postage within the UK. Whilst I'm not a big airliner fan, I do like the lines of the Viscount but not to the tune of buying 40. 2 or 3 perhaps (oh, and some TAA and Ansett decals if I can find some). So here's a thought. How many forum members would be interested in the Viscount? Would there be enough interest for, say, 20-odd members to chip in and buy the lot ... assuming someone doesn't beat us to the punch?

Just a thought ...

PS. Here's a snazzy RAE scheme for those military-inclined. ;)

In principal I think that's a great idea, Smeg, but the Viscount just doesn't interest me sufficiently I'm afraid. A great idea though and keen for similar scheme for other subjects...

Much as I'm enjoying my current build of the S and M Models Viscount, I would only consider another two...mebbe three at the very most.
A quick check on eBay tells us that you can almost certainly get your £2.99 back, but it's not a sale that'll make you significant sums. I also believe that there's no shortage of cartons of them.
