  1. Something for the den wall of the Airfix fan.
  2. A big thank you to forum member 'Topdog'. He saw my daughter's recently completed PR Spitfire shown below, and donated an Airfix Dambuster Lancaster to the cause of advancing her modelmaking and patience skills. The kit arrived today, and I left it all packaged up for her as a surprise when she got home from school. It's perhaps a little advanced just now, but as we have some other easier kits to start first, we can get around to it may be next year. The Spit diorama took us a couple of years, so the Lanc will be a major project taking some time, but ideal for the long school holidays. Some more quality father/daughter time ahead in that one! The PR.1G Spitfire completed in the early days of January this year; mostly her own work. Previous projects are already flying displays to the cuddly toy collection.
  3. Some years ago I determined to get myself one of the model Bailey Sets that the RE used for training purposes. These things were mostly made of wood, with some brass fittings. And were made for the WD by the famous model railway company Bassett-Lowke. Little did I know just how difficult it would be to get a full set of these things, nor how much of an obsession it would become. I still do not have a full set of Bailey Bridge components but I recently obtained a, near-complete, Pontoon set for the same. Even though they're in 1/6th scale these things are huge, (see pics below). The bridge led me to also seek out a suitable sized RC tank and I managed to pick up a 1/6th sca\le RC Stuart from the US(which is waiting a new upper-hull, a paint job and a re-badge to 8th KRIH). The tank took me to a 1/6th scale tankie figure, (i.e. Actionman size), Lt Devilishly Handsome of 8th KRIH (also shown below for scale). And I'm now in the process of building a 1/6th scale Cromwell (hence the question in research about the FD housing and cover plate). BTW, if anyone comes across any of sets of 1/6th scale Bailey, or any components thereoff (even broken bits). Do let me know...cash waiting in my emergency Bailey fund (suitably salted away from prying wifely eyes).
