You seem to be doing more 1/35 armour than me at the moment, Fred! :o

Just wondering if you know what your intentions are for the Tamiya-boxed Italeri Sd.Kfz.231? :unsure:

Thank you. Saves me saying "I didn't know Tamiya did a 231"  ;D I knew Italeri did and I know Tamiya rebox Italeri kits for their home market, but I'm never certain which ones they've done.

Got home and found the Vulcan box also had five brand new tinlets of Humbrol paint in it , result or what ? .

Definitely  :thumbsup:

Somewhere I've got quite a few pics of the rest of the Observation Car, it's pretty impressive. I'll see if I can dig them out.


Found them. Here's the outer end looking from the seat I was in.




And here's the opposite view, looking inward.

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! :)

Comfy chairs! That looks much better than the average train coach run by NS.

Don't know about "doing" more.  I do seem to be buying a bit as I have developed an attraction to 1/35 armoured cars.
Not sure what i'll do with this.

Indeed, but it was a Pullman coach, which cost extra anyway, and normal passengers were only allowed to stay in the coach for 30 mins. at a time. Except me and a young girl who was also an 'Unaccompanied Minor'.  ;D I had a seat in there for the entire trip!  ;D

Hehehe, LOVE that idea!  :thumbsup: :wub:

A 1/144 Zvezda Tu-134  :thumbsup:
A 1/72 Hobbycraft Skyraider
And a 1/72 Academy Grumman Wildcat

All part of a complex UK/Korea trade deal between Strobez and me, and I seem to have come out well ahead for some reason.   :-\

Toy World in Mornington have marked their kits down again (they have told me in the past that they only have them in the store because they are in the catalogue and so they are contractually obliged to).
Airfix 1/72 Do-17Z 25% off.
