Hi my name is Simon and I have a problem.......

Si/John - far too many but they were too good to miss even though I will never live long enough to build them

I remembered the crew from your plane dio John - they are ideal general purpose figures

I don't actually know where the fuel filler(s) are on the train though so the chaps will just have to be standing around

Morning all,

Nice looking kits guys.

Hermann, looking forward to see you tackle the big p

Simon T, you’re not the only one with that problem…..face 20

First thingys of the year dropped off by the postman:


The paint-sets are for some RNLAF aircraft I have in the build schedule for this year and some etch for the RAF GB entries.

Fernando - thumbs upface 20

Si - I have one of those 222's part done (I do like the 222 series) There are always bits that can be added but at least the ICM one doesn't need a total rebuild like the Airfix one I did

What are the figures like? I have quite a few of those sets that I got cheap and some of them are appalling

Morning Simon,






For the price I think they are pretty reasonable for 1 72. Bit of flash here and there but nothing too bad.

Pity there not in 1/35 , as they look fine , not seen many civilian Russian figures that are reasonable in price .

Afternoon All,

Some really nice buys going on for some nice projects. I have been fighting the urge to increase the stash kit wise. Well, this one was too good to pass up for under € 40 delivered and you know I sure do love a Kitty too!!!

1118 pieces in a rather large box. Metal barrel, 2 etch frets, clear periscopes, decals for 7 vehicles, wire tow cables, and indy track links with 6 attachment points on each link (OMG) and 2 guide horns to attach to them. You can build various mods depending on the unit (storage box, anti-ditching logs, 2 styles of exhaust systems and 2 cleaning rod tubes) and you even get optional ice cleats for the track shoes. It sure does look sweet.........


The downside, no Zimmerit. Meng does offer 4 styles of Zim for it @ € 9.95 a sheet. Or, go the Ron route and DIY...

Si - they don't look too bad compared to some of the ones I have. That poor lass is a gonner though - tank shell through the midriff, ouch

Allen - that doesn't sound too horrendous a price when you consider it comes with all the aftermarket bits in the box. As for the zim, go diy
