Weekend Model Window is an occasional spot to show you some interesting stuff we've come across recently. 

The 1:43 scale Ferrari F40 is a Herpa plastic readybuilt, full of detail and a beautiful little product that sold to a lucky eBay buyer recently. 

The Messerschmitt Me163 Komet diorama was created by SMN star Mat Irvine, and very neatly done, too.

The Revell 1:32 scale Red Arrows Hawk is a finely detailed model that we'll have a closer look at soon.


The slightly smaller scale 1:35 Wiesel 2 mobile air defence system of the German Army comes complete with rotating quad missile launcher. 155 components make up this 129 mm (5.1 in) long Revell kit.

Ah Ghostbusters, what a great movie! And that Cadillac is still an object of desire at SMN Towers, even more so if it arrived driven by a lady with legs like that. This neat model was spotted at a show in Birmingham, UK.  

Science fiction in all its forms is an SMN enthusiasm, so this Martian War Machine caught our eye at a model meet recently. Good job the VW driver escaped beforehand.

A neat piece of model engineering from a member of the Gloucester and District Model Boat Club, a group that really knows how to create nautical masterworks.

Last but not least, found in the SMN Vault of Antiquity, an excellent condition 1984 Tamiya catalogue. Then, as now, Tamiya produces them to the highest standards, with printing and photo quality that makes you salivate - and certainly want to buy a kit or two.
