More Boats

Last couple needed...

Found this in a junk shop, a pleasure trip raft sort of thing

Another pirate ship hull

Transports complete.

We just completed over 3000km on our road trip. One small town had a toy shop - all half price :) The Tomica stuff is for road bridge I have in mind.

The girls were no drama and spent most of the trip with their head's out of the windows of the Land Rover, leaving lots of drool to add to the dirt :)

Bone Yard T34s

Probably the oldest kits in my collection. This pair by Airfix have been in the bone yard a long time

The tracks are from a resin T35


And, T34/85

Total of five T34s in my Russian stuff now, the others are by PSC.

Work Bench

Ash went home last week so I've been back in the cave catching up

Kiwis. The first of three planned formations, the black ones at the back will form part of a machine gun battalion

This is a Dragon 251/1, a very detailed kit by my standards

Airfix German para now at about the 3/4 stage

Played a few board games with Ash while she was here, which prompted me to get back to finishing the characters from the expansion set for Last Night on Earth.

Seldom if ever bored :)

Fences and Trees

Some very useful additions...

Jack sent me the fences a while back - four different styles

And, I based up some more trees while I was at it

Plenty on the go :)

Japanese Type 4 Ke-Nu

Finished these last night

Nice little x4 part resins by Frontline

One of the more successful Japanese light tanks of WW2

I'll get one more at some stage and make it a command platoon to finish off the company.

From Girls

Our visiting daughter sprung these on me for Father's Day, joy!
Then, Tracy added two, joy!

Never had the Afrika Korp set before, so bonus. The South Africans I'm thinking to mix with the HaT Tropical set we'll see? And the Kiwi's, well, more is better :)

German AA guns

A couple of additions to the light AA guns in my German collection

37mm by Hasegawa

Quad 20mm by Fujimi 

Both can be taken off their ground mounts and fitted to vehicles.

Airfix 222

From the recon set

For my early war collection

Beside my only other 222

Didn't quite get the attention it deserved and I may add some crew figures. Paul's one here is a good example
