Although I never did any war-gaming, I did buy loads of these many years ago and paint them up. I sold them at a good mark-up to the war-gamers who couldn't be bothered :-D

Now that sounds like a cunning plan for my surplus :roll:

Nice score, Alan. Nicely detailed too. You must have enough for at least a regiment or two there.

Depending on how many you keep, I would have thought you'd be able to cover your initial purchase (and more besides I shouldn't wonder) :grin:

To say I’m a happy bunny might be an understatement :shock:

I don’t think they would have stored tanks on the top deck due to their weight making the ship top heavy, but as you see I have got a large amount of soft vehicles to cover the top deck leaving me with two unused bags of medium and heavy tanks, that could make a good contribution to my initial cost.

I can always be cheeky and cast some more lorries

This raises the question do I open up the front doors and have the Churchill’s or Shermans coming out?

Don't you just love the way these simple builds get out of hand?

Never a truer word said, a simple quick GB turns into a full blown build.

Opening the doors would make building the base easier and I’m still at the stage where no fiddle bits that can be broken off have been added . :???:

So it looks like more surgery is required :evil:
