Lockdown sale - Phase 2 HUGE LIST Aircraft, vehicles and figures

During lockdown I have sorted through my stash and realised that the remnants of the models that belonged to Brian who was murdered a few years ago and my stash total far more than I can store let alone build. You may remember that I have sold off kits to provide holidays and support to Brian’s fami...

My father says he commanded a platoon of these in the mid to late 1950s, so I thought I'd surprise him with a model of one. The rub is that I have no idea of what markings th...

Re: Show Us Your Recycled Toys!

A couple of Lledo fire engines repurposed into artillery tractors. The 6" howitzers are card, paper, sprue and a pair of scrap box wheels. https://i.imgur.com/s5nSjwm.png I needed some Italian looking personnel transport and portees. The 47mm guns are spue and wire with scrap bot wheels https:/...
