Ian you never agree with me - are you feeling alright?

Radio equipped T26s

I painted the ordinary version about 5 years ago and it's taken me to now to add the radio equipped version. This was partly because this version was quite difficult to find and eventually I ordered them from China. https://4.bp.blogspot.com/--4czj13D13w/Xp8Tq2Vz1xI/AAAAAAAAYvU/Neix6vg15h4hjrL6J4SJp...

M35 trucks for Nam

A slight diversion from my current plans, I was distracted by these M35 trucks made by 4D I found them on ebay and acquired three for less than a tenner including postage. Nice simple kits, which are good enough for wargames usage and not as useless as the original kits made by another company calle...
