Nothing emphasises rough-field capability than a Soviet era IL-76.

Er, like the URL says, that's the P.1214, not the P.1154.  Still would be tempted to buy a couple, though.

Seafire MK. XV. Remember seeing this airframe as a hulk in the early 1980s when I was a volunteer at the Canadian Warplane Heritage. Flew with the RCN.

Idea: Sew some magnets to the bottom seam. Glue some magnets/metal sheeting to the underside of your workbench. Et volià - starve the carpet monster!
I reckon attaching magnets to workbench and apron takes less time than it took me to find the clear (because of course!) gun camera casing I dropped when building a 1/72 Fishbed.  :P
Pretty sure I've seen versions of this where the apron is fastened permanently to the workbench. Using magnets will ensure you don't strangle yourself or knock-over the workbench (or both!  ;)) when getting up while forgetting about the apron.
Cheers,
Moritz

My wife made me a fairly long one, with Velcro straps that connect to the bottom of my desk. It worked OK, until a part rolls off one side or the other, or I get up and forget to disengage.

I use it without the Velcro and it catches most of the parts that fly off or fall.

Wonder how long it will be befor Hasegawa modifies their V-22B tooling, or includes the necessary bits as extras, to depict this version?
