I suppose you could use the upturned box to display things on Nathan, but the box does not contain a display cabinet....

I wish Marcio!!!  :coolpics: The current Ebay BIN price on the contents of the box is about 1/10 the price of an Amalgam (i.e. approx £300....)

Ooh tricky one Nathan, You are a pain! I've unpacked the box since the pic.... :twocents:

However I've just weighed the box and contents on my (crummy) bathroom scales, and combined weight  (as far as i could make out) is approx 18-20lb....  :occasion14:

Do they make these at 1/18???

I would buy it if so, but I don't think so.


I think it is an F-18, but I am hoping it is the F-104. It is a much cooler jet!

Seriously they are a bit of a pain....the Starfighter resides on top of a wardrobe, but i don't think Mair will tolerate the F-18 anywhere but the attic.... :twocents:   :tongue4:

Wow. Thats one massive add! Altho the F-18(I much prefer the A10...strange. I know. Lol) isn't my favourite, it's still cool none the less!

Does it come with a stand? Like those small planes that you can buy from the airport. Lol.
