A few quick builds this week to give my Mustangs and Fireflies something to aim at.

As you can see, I couldn't resist tinkering a bit, so one Opel has had the tilt opened at the rear. My only other addition so far has been drive shafts:

These are very good value, three in a box (One 251 D still to  build), quick and easy to put together, and a decent basic canvas for detailing if you want.

Blast from the past (collectors, look away now)

Yesterday at the local swap meet I acquired a bunch of stuff in original boxes etc. one such was an Airfix pontoon bridge, which bears little relation to a real bailey bridge (being a weird and poorly realised mixture of pontoon and bailey) but which is a real blast from my childhood. Assembled as soon as my sticky (and slightly drunk) fingers could make a start. In real life would have twice as many wee boats and rather different (if any) girders, but it’s a great piece of nostalgia.

Nostalgia is a good theme for the day, since I seem to have hit some new number in the ledger, and here’s a totally gratuitous shot of the beautiful Mrs 06/24 helping me celebrate with a massive steak at lunchtime B)
