Of course, you will have to throw away the harriers....

Excellent price.

(Grab it quick! If the Government spots that we still have a carrier, they will take it out of service and flog it for scrap . . . )

Decent price for a brand new kit, just want to point out that you will need at least 1 more full sized pot/tin of Humbrol 127 paint, possibly some of the others too, as the supplied paint won't cover the whole ship

Sounds like the kind of thing the Ministry of Defence would do in real life.....

Cold. The real thing will cost less than this in a years time.

Perfect gift for the small son of an unloved relative ...
