  1. Also in the box were these two figures that come with the Tamiya Churchill (plus one I had previously) All four Dragon figures are now assembled I'm not sure of the provenance of this four I added the Jerry cans, but I'll probably use something else. This five are Tamiya's British Infantry On Patrol, that I previously used with my Cromwell And this five probably originate from the same set but have alternative heads and other parts I don't think I'll use the French civilians and I'll select the ten figures to represent
  2. This is a little project I've been meaning to do since 2010. In March of 1945 the 1st Northamptonshire Yeomanry was re-equipped with eight Mk II & twenty-four Mk IV LVTs making 3 squadrons in readiness for the crossing of the Rhine. Each Mk IV was issued with 6pdr Anti-Tank ramps. All LVTs were fitted with one .300 and one .500 Browning and one 4" smoke discharger. All Buffalos to be painted olive drab under unit arrangements and 79 Armoured Division Signs will also be painted on. Four stencils will be issued by CREME to Brigade HQ. The figure box was given to me in 2013 by ATF mem
  3. What size roundels were applied to Canberras? I have Modeldecal sheet #85 and intend to use the markings for Canberra E.15 WJ756 'CL', No. 100 Sqn, RAF Wyton, Sept 1983, for which the roundels are not supplied. Guidance appreciated.

    I'm sure Microsoft (and companies like them) employ a bunch of kids who think they know better than everyone else, and have the power to impose their perfect solutions on all of us, whether we want them or not.
  5. Now that's weird, I copied the link to Innervisions (and posted it on the ATF) yet here it's become Talking Book Stevies four great albums - Talking Book, Innervisions, Fullfillingness First Finale and Songs In The Key Of Life - a very productive period

    You can have that one if, by reason of balance, we can set fire to cars parked on the pavement. This seems to be the latest fad in this country - vehicles blocking footpaths by inconsiderate parking
  7. Hi @johnlambert I used PVA to fix the windows (and the fit is poor), its the floor that's not flat, I found pictures of the two-tone green on line and chose it because it's unusual.

    Did he have an Irish accent? I get them frequently asking if my old/scrap/fill in your own description/ caravan is for sale If it was for sale I'd put a sign in it, saying FOR SALE
