First, some progress with some of those recent plastic kit acquisitions.
Also in the top photo is the Matchbox Daimler Dingo from the Monty's Caravan set. This was a much better build, nicely detailed and all the parts fitted pretty well. The only problem was the brittleness of the plastic which meant I broke a couple of the wheel suspension units cutting them from the sprue. They still fitted and aren't obvious, so I can live with that. Not started assembling the Leyland Truck yet, may leave that for a bit.
Other than building, I seem to have been on a bit of a buying spree (only genuine bargains of course...). Over the last couple of weeks I've picked up the following kits:
Revell (formerly matchbox) 17 pounder anti-tank gun with Morris tractor and jeep. This looks a nice kit which I'm looking forward to building. It also come with a nice diorama base of a bombed out building that will become scenery with a little work.
Hasegawa Jeep and 37mm anti-tank gun. Along with the above Revell kit, helping to solve my lack of jeeps. It's a basic looking kit, and i'm not sure I'll be using the gun much, but looks like it will go together well enough. Some handy crew for the gun, although with some 'interesting' poses...
Matchbox M16 Half-Track. I'm particularly pleased to have got hold of this kit. The matchbox M16 was one of the first kits I assembled completely on my own as a kid. If I remember it later got converted to be used in games of GW's Dark Future and who knows where it ended up after that!
Trading off cash for time and effort, a nice little pre-painted diecast M8 armoured car. It was only a couple of quid more expensive than most of the kits that are out there, and didn't need assembling, so there we go! Shown with a GI from the Caesar US Infantry set 1.
