One step closer

Postby Chopper » 15 Sep 2014 00:21

Its been an AF drought for near a year and then I win this lot on ebay;

I don't know what God I was blessed by, but this makes ye olde 83 to 85 collection about 99% complete. I'm a little stunned.

Thank You very much to MrD for help with this lot. I think I'm getting a bit teary..........

Christ, I didn't see the MMS there either. Nice HAWK with cowl intact, Minesweeper, FLAK (I loves me some FLAKs), Rapid Fire and a few more troops. I'd have paid 35 quid without the base.

YOU BLOODY LITTLE RIPPER!

I did. My first one was TOLTOYS. :P

Only 1 figure to go, Dolphin V2. Technically, Morris Dancer Phones too. But that's not near as important unless you are Hopper or SteveD.

I'll grab some CC bits from the US to get me started, but its a nice project to have and should keep me occupied........ aw f*ck. Here we go again.

Well done mate. :)
When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question. How would the Lone Ranger handle this?

Nice one Chops!

I think I've got some spare Z CC parts, let me know what you need.

With regards to your wants list, I've also got a spare red aerial and a couple of Roboskull engine cowls as well.

Jon, I think the main centre piece of the CC is missing and one front wall, from that pic.

I was watching that one and missed its ending, glad it went to a good home and that I didn't drive the price up.
