    Nice to see the 'usual suspects' today - John, Ade and Andy - although we didn't spend too much time together.

    Some reasonable prices but only one really good deal (The London Bus), so I've got some pennies saved for the next couple of shows at Wombourne and Sutton Coldfield - I can't remember which comes first):

    Nice kits there Dave I brought a few myself the best bargain was a Tamiya 1/35 Dragon Wagon and Trailer £40 followed by italeri Chaffee £10 Academy tank £15 After that it was all downhill and mainly bits n bobs for dioramas. Nice to see you there today although briefly as it was hard work finding a deal. Wombourne first Dave followed a week later by Sutton. Cheers John

    Where did you find that Dragon Wagon? I'd have snatched the guy's hand off at that price!

    It was upstairs Dave next to the cafe. There was only three tables and it was behind the cloth barely visible hiding in the box under the table. I held onto with a vice like grip after checking the price twice as there was a guy and his mate hovering over me like vultures waiting to pounce. As I got up and left he said to his mate ooooooo we didn't see that box did we! Just got lucky I guess :)
