to answer the 2nd first, yup, they bray( link to bbc  docu here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MfstYSUscBc )
and for the 1st one im afraid that ive still not found a pic hosting site whos T+Cs I can read and understand enough to feel confidant in taking photos,  and my painting is workmanlike and wargames quality, ill be winning no prizes for it, and my photography skill are less.  the sea Tonka here
http://www.whatifmodelers.com/index.php/topic,36789.30.html  and  the Berlin block camo and the 2 Challenger conversions here http://www.whatifmodelers.com/index.php/topic,33960.345.html are earlier stuff to my normal ( just) standard

went to  the Derby wargames show today ( its also open tomorrow if any one fancy's a look)  at castle donington race track. the was a lot there but the venue isn't good, its dark, noisy and not a patch on the old site at derby uni ( which the organisers can no longer get  :banghead:)
there was a lot of interesting stuff coming both laser cut MDF scenery and laser etch acrylic scenery, and had a look at the warlord games Pegasus bridge  its well shiny but a bit of a one trick pony for me to consider. latest acquisitions on the stash and library pages

28mm, that's around 1/48?  Might look good for a dio with one of the FM Horsas.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.
