The Cobb Railton Mobil Special is one awesome car, I saw it many years ago, but stupidly can't remember here. Considering how big the engines are, TWO Napier Lion W12s, the thing is incredibly low to the ground. Doing 400 mph in that had to have been amazing!

The Thunderbolt by comparison seemed to be a huge car, Eyston seems to be dwarfed by the size of the car in the photos. Sadly it seems the car was destroyed by a fire when it was in NZ sometime during WWII.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

The Trumpeter Westland Wyvern. If [a big if] I can get the DDR Dornier finished, I see an alternative to the Skyraider - SE Asia camo and RAAF insignia perhaps?

Today arrived some armour additions to the Honduras army, in the shape of a pair of 1/72nd scale Weisel 1 MK 20's. This is the S model 2 in a box kit, and is a quick build. They are quite good detail wise, and the only quick build I can see about them is the tracks and wheels as they are moulded as one. To me a good thing as they are quite tiny. Both are identical, with a 20 mm cannon in the turret, but one might get armed differently to the other. I just need a big enough transport helicopter for them to be transported inside, and slap some Honduras markings on it. I may just steal either a CH-47 or CH-53 off the U.S Marines for that purpose.

Some 1:72 metal barrels for various cannons/tanks, directly from Poland - for some future tank conversion projects.

Well I've had a busy January and I'm not going to be adding anything new this month as I'm well and truly skint.

Ebay wins:
AModel Messerschmitt Bf 109 G2
Unknown Resin N.A. P-51H
Bilek IL-28 (was to be my GB entry but seeing Zenrat's Seabeagle maybe it will just be stash fodder !)
Sanger Avro Shackleton MR.1/2/3 - to be an MR.1 (yes I love vacuforms)
Hobby Boss Grumman Panther
Revell (nee Trumpeter) Antonov AN-2 Colt
Fly A.W. Whitley - less than half the price it was a year ago, thank you Airfix !
Choroszy A.W. 36 Scimitar resin - lovely kit (and cheap !)

From on-line stores
AModel Antonov AN-30 Clank - from Poland and 2/3rds the price than any UK seller (including postage !)
Airfix New Tool B.P. Defiant - well I had to get one didn't I?
AModel Let-L200
Hobby Boss LVT A-7E Corsair II - I now have the full house of all the Hobby Boss variants
Hasegawa Cessna A-37
Wolfpack N.A. T-2C Buckeye - expensive but looks nice
Italeri Fecce Tricolor set - MB 336 / Sabre / Fiat G-91 - Cheaper to buy the set than try to get a Revell G-91 on it's own
Aeroplast PZL M28 Coast Guard

From generous people on here....
Matchbox Messerschmitt bf 109 E  (Scooters on my Christmas card list)
Fine Molds Messerschmitt bf 109 G6 (Nares2 joins him)

Are they for modern tanks and cannons? if so could you send me a link to who you got them from please.

No, it's WWII stuff, and the only more modern barrels belong to Soviet tanks (125mm).
