Suitable for the 1:48 submarine, or 1:1 scale?  :blink:

Markings for T-38s, an F-22 and a Marine One V-22. Of course, these will all be whiffed!

back from the hammerhead wargames show,
for me
2 packs of Empress miniatures vehicle crews, for my airfix op herrick stuff
a second hand original GW land speeder ( the white metal one from the early 90s) but no crew, possibly a hanger bird, though I may have enough bits to crew it in the bits draw, 2.50  a total bargain less than the original price.
another Crooked dice destroyer, though I asked nicely at the stand and they sold me an extra set of arms so I can do a 6 armed version
from hysterical games a female dwarven  quarter mistress, and a command squad of Tommy orcs,  including one with a handful of char mugs  :lol: 
and from warbases a 1:56 mk1 male tank flatpacked in laser cut MDF and card.
and between Mrs P and myself a copy of the games workshop Deathwatch overkill board game ( some more space marines for me, but more importantly  Geanstealer Hybrids for Mrs P) at a discount that covered the petrol cost of getting to the show and back  :thumbsup:
Redone 19/08/15  the things you learn, give your mind the wings to fly, and the chains to hold yourself steady added 07/10/18   take off and nuke the site form orbit, nope, time for the real thing, CAM and gridfire, call special circumstances.   wow, its like freefalling into the Geofront
