Surprise Mail

This was a gift from an old friend, who heard I was back home

I have about half a dozen of these now, and this bonus addition is well received :)

Well, not much at present. Although I have started some of these wooden models to add to my oriental scenery collection....

Eventually they'll be tidied up with filler and glue and given a lick of paint.

Resin Buildings

Excellent little numbers by Frontline

The roof of each model is interchangeable. I'm happy these will suit multiple eras and theatres.

So, finally got a few pieces to work on and have started a couple of mini projects, more later. These kits in the pictures are all 1/35 scale

This is from the collection of my friend Billy in Brisbane. His interests in this scale include: aircraft, vehicles and infantry, with the odd diorama as well.

All my kit is still to arrive. But I got x5 colours from the local toy shop and here what I finished up with...

These two are Airfix. Far too expensive for what they are :(

This last one is by Frontline
