For those that may be interested in such things Aldi are including some 1/72 Airfix Starter in their specials for next Sunday, 20/11/2016, for €7.99 each. choose from Spitfire/Mustang/Hurricane/Gnat/Cromwell/Tomahawk.

Also in Lidl from today there are a selection of Revell Star Wars build + play kits for €9.99(normally north of €20.00 each) with sound and lights effects where appropriate. choose from TFA-MF/First order Tie Fighter/Poe Damron's X-wing.

Happy shopping!! :D

Trying to decide whether the savings in cost of kit/s will leave more money for groceries or the savings on cost of groceries will leave more money for kit/s .Ignoring the 'cost of kit/s leaves less money for food for family' option .

Win/win !

Lidl Leixlip had two or three of the black XWings this morning .Theyre pre coloured /painted plastic but certainly keenly priced especially taking into account the on board electronics .

Just saw, on Facebook, that the Aldi starter kits are retailing for £4.99 in the Aldi stores in the UK.

Somebody in Aldi doesn't understand the (now much reduced) exchange rate between the Euro and sterling (especially as Airfix kits come out of the UK)....or is seeking to fleece Irish modellers..

Four big €35 lights with magnifier (x2.25 power ) in Lidl Leixlip at 7pm last night .Was tempted but they're so darn BIG ! I'd say you'd need a designated hobby room to make them practical .They clamp onto table ( don't 'stand ') so you need a good chunk of press space to store it when not in use Id imagine ( or is there a lot of 'air' in box ?

It's garden equipment week at Aldi at the moment, and these are very useful to cover models while paint/Future is drying:-

Choose from TFA-MF/First order Tie Fighter/Poe Damron's X-wing/Resistance X-wing.These were previously available on special from Lidl before Christmas last.

The usual Christmas range of starter set kits from Airfix is now available in Aldi - Spitfire, Jet Provost, Cromwell Tank, Bf 109E-3, Red Arrows Gnat - all 1/72, and also HMS Victory.

Looks like they are all €7.99.

(no sign of the Mustang this year :( ...)

No, I paid €13.99 for my ME109E-4 in the local art & Hobby shop, I'll be buying a few for my stash (particularly if it is the E-3 I really want to do a Spanish civil war 109 and possibly one of the 70/71 early camo versions)

Aldi (I think) have cutting mats A4 twin pack pink/blue and A3 Pink/Blue for €3.49 from today. Even as a spare, I may get a pink one to connect with my feminine side :)
