7Toys7 on evilBay have listed the Skalski Spit at $US24 and the black Spit at $US25. ColorToyz has the latter at $US20.

But what about the colours on the Skalski bird? The lighter shade is supposed to be Middle Stone but, based on the photos I've seen, the F-Toys kit looks greenish. And it is very debatable whether the brown is Dark Earth.

At least they got the black one about right!

sdont forget to check Radsan777 for ebay prices too?

as for the Skalski colours, i agree they look a bit odd...

but it could be the digital cameras?

even the black looks a little shiney?

Looking forward to receiving the Skalski Spit from Rad.

My gaming group has been playing 1/144 Med scenarios using the "Check Your 6!" rules.

Hi DaveV

indeed, quite an interesting character Mr Skalski once you start looking into his history!

A good choice by Algernon,
