    One of the traders reduced his second hand kits by 40% in the last hour so I grabbed it for £12.The crazy thing is someone left two extra sets of different after market decals inside so I have about 5 marking options. Curvy women included;);)

    Yet another cracking day! I did notice there didn't seem to be quite as many traders as usual. Maybe a good job though as me, Tony and Ian were still rummaging through boxes at 4:30. Any more traders and we'd probably still be there. But that's the secondary reason for going. Meeting up with my mates is MUCH more important.

    Here's my haul (no big boxes though:():

    IMGP2186.JPG IMGP2188.JPG IMGP2187.JPG

    That's for the 'Under a fiver' build.

    IMGP2189.JPG IMGP2190.JPG IMGP2191.JPG IMGP2192.JPG IMGP2193.JPG IMGP2194.JPG IMGP2195.JPG IMGP2196.JPG IMGP2197.JPG

    Now I gotta sort out another storage rack .......

    PS Ron - I nearly bought one of those 1/400 Clemenceau carriers you got. This one in a sealed box with an oil tender and escort ship. I didn't as it was priced at £34 but now I'm home I'm sort of having second thoughts remembering how sharp and clean yours looked ......

    Incidentally, how far home were you when you realised you'd left your Spitfire kit with Tony? I so wanted to be a fly on the wall and see if I could learn some new swear words! I know there were some good bargains found today, but for me, a new 1/48 ICM Spitfire for £4.50 had to be the best buy of the day.

    PPS I just noticed that ZBD 04 APC has only got one camo scheme and that's the digital one shown on the box. I can't see me ever getting good enough to do that. I'll have to see if there are other schemes.

    Dave nice haul. Concerning the digital camo on the APC there are masks available and are reusable if used carefully. But there's always olive drab ;).
    Cheers John

    Dave, how far from home was I?.......I was home!
    I was actually sat in front of the computer doing my 'Cosford Report' when the awful truth dawned on me. - Even the dog rolled her eyes, so you can imagine what the present Mrs. Ron said!

    Had my 'good angel' with me on Sunday (Daughter), so no mega spending of boxes for me, good job really, cause when my bad Angel (son) comes it gets a bit hard explaining how i won so many 'raffles' when i get home ;). So came away with some new MM sanding sticks, two packs of blades oh and Mengs 1/35 Leopard 2A4 for £20.00 so was happy with that.

    It wasn't until I was on my way to work this morning when my own 'awful truth' arrived in my brain.

    Ron, you told us you'd bought a couple of kits to show at one of the club tables. I guess it must have been all the excitement, but I never thought to ask you to show us where! :oops: Most embarrassing to let down a mate like that! Did any of the others ask and get to see them?

    I would have loved to see more of your builds 'in the flesh' as it were.

    It's hard to see from the picture, but what colour is the hull behind the wheels? It looks black, but that might just be because that area is in shadow.

    Well yes, it was a great day a good to see everyone again. Now I wasn't there to stock up on kits, but did buy something for the 'Cosford £5.00 build'

    A step into the dark side for me, I bought a tank. This is apparently a Chinese copy of a Hasegawa kit, so it's sort of ok.
    IMG_0901.JPG

    But just in case I couldn't make the leap into armour world, a back up £5.00 kit was purchased. This kit was released in 1967, making it 50 years old this year. Should I build it or frame it ??
    IMG_0902.JPG

    Like I said, 50 years old, the original price is still on the box.
    IMG_0903.JPG

    And finally, this. A piece of very important 'stuff'
