Today's window is a competition to win the kit of your choice (I'm guessing everyone's choice is going to be a big Typhoon....)

I thought about a Free Enterprise II but went for a 1/24 Mossie instead!

I'd go for the 1/24 Mosquito. I really wanted to put 1/48 Vulcan but figured they were looking for the name of a kit they currently produce.

I asked for the SeaKing HC Mk4. Doesn't have to arrive for Christmas, I'm happy to wait until my Birthday in January.

I put down the 1/24th Mossie as it is the most expensive thing they produce.

I went for the Avro Shackleton MR2 1:72 - I'm not really sure why I am bothering, as Fred is bound to come up trumps. :D

Seeing as the 1/24 Mosquito FB is scheduled for release before Xmas, I thought I'd try for that...

Missed out on entering! Today's offering is a bit lame. Design a Hawk kit for £5.99.

Don't know bout 'lame'; over 50% off is ok. Even with postage added, still under normal price.

The Design a Hawk kit was part of the "Last Chance To Buy" sale, I think. It is certainly still listed there on the Airfix website at the same price as in the Advent deal. I wonder if it will be pulled from the Last Chance sale after today?

Great minds obviously think alike - this was exactly my thought when I saw yesterday's offer!
