It was a logical step on from the GMC 2 1/2 Ton, firstly as the M35 in all its versions then the M109.

The kit itself has some excellent tools and machinery, and it won't be difficult to leave the shop roof as a lift-off. The driver's cab has optional hard or soft tops, and a very detailed front winch if you want to use it.

I paid £45 from Veteranus Models in Ripon for mine, and it srrived in West Cornwall in two days.

Hi Chris not the interceptor. I got the idea to build something from "Tony C" build Witness me!!.I'm going to try and build "The Bullet Farmers Peacemarker from Mad Max Fury Road" the Dogge Charger is the closest to the Valiant Charger plus a lot of scrach building.

Hi Folks

I recently put out a request for figures suitable for use with the new AFV Club M113A1 ACAV.

I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to Gary MacKenzie for a box of Tamiya figures from various M113 kits, and to Mike Cartmale for a set of Verlinden figures and Vietnam-era accessories. Neither of these outstanding gentlemen would accept payment, a fine example of the wonderful membership we have here.

Great people on a great site.

Just received this:

Looks quite good, and as I have the Tamiya in my stash and a PE set for it, quite pertinent for the new year. The review of the book is very good, so money well spent, especially as I got it for $10 Cdn!

The review is here: **LINK**

Got a load of goodies today:

grass.jpg

Varieties of grass and flower materials from WWS. I bought the big bags so that should keep me in grass for quite a while. Excellent prices and fast shipping. They're located in the UK, so should be very easy to buy from for most of you fellows.

Also, the little black doodads are negative ion generators just arrived from China at the whopping price of $1.88 each!

One of these will be the heart of a static grass applicator. I found the how to here: **LINK**

Postie slipped these through my letterbox this morning......

I've been using Ultimate Modelling sanding sticks, but I find them too soft and flexible, so I've gone back to the good old Squadron sticks

Hi Dave, I used to use UMP sanding stick and I agree with you they are soft, have you tried Flory s/s they are now my go to sanding stick, might be worth a look mate. I used to be on ISM forum and that's all they went on about and if you didn't use their product (UMP) or mention in a GB or SIG you did win angry 2 sorry for the rant.
