Re: Dragon Models Vehicles for sale

My mum used to say"be mindful how you treat people on your way through life, because you'll surely meet them again on the return leg of your journey". She was a wise old woman my mum! Actually, what she used to say was "Be mindful how you treat people on the way up, because you'll surely meet them a...

Re: Dragon Models Vehicles for sale

As it's you Sean, and as you and I have such a 'unique relationship' with lots of 'history', a special price of £25,000.00 ;-)

Dragon Models Vehicles for sale

Got a load of mostly pre-built DML vehicles for sale guys, see photo. Still working out prices for these things but open to sensible offers! I'm prejudiced in favour of UK buyers, and extremely prejudiced in favour of UK buyers who collect and bring cash with them! In addition to what you see in the...

Re: Price Check for the Original AH 250 kit

Have had a lot of interest in these and think I've pretty much sold everything I have, if any of the deals fall through I'll get back to the people who I haven't yet talked to!

Re: Price Check for the Original AH 250 kit

Robert,

will give you a ring this evening or tomorrow mate, depending on time allowances permitted by my overlord. I've got a lot of stuff I want to dispose of, including a few things you might be interested in but I'll tell you all about that when we talk.

Price Check for the Original AH 250 kit

Hi Chaps, long time since I've been on here, been out of the hobby for years now due to cumulative degeneration of the spinal column, the side effect of being caught within the blast radius of a 500 lb Car Bomb in Ulster, during the early '80's! Anyways, starting to go through the storage unit and g...

Re: BattleTrax 1/10 scale Tanks

Well if it is Jon Spalding I think that's enough to make me give it a pass (not that I was ever in the market for that scale of Tank). Still I have memories of buying the first Armortek Tiger and the falsehoods I was fed by Jon Spalding about when I'd get my tank and how it would perform! I rather s...

BattleTrax 1/10 scale Tanks

Just received a copy of this month's Military Modelling and found a 2 page advert for Battletrax (a UK company offering 1/10th scale metal tanks). They claim to have a combat system for their tanks to allow simulated combat over a 200 metre range and us GPS tech. Anyone hear of them? They appear to ...

Re: Armortek

Re: Mulberry Harbours?

Actually, the model at Arromanche was made post-war by Bassett-Lowke and is a copy of the WWII one. It was made especially for, and at the request, of the Arromanche Museum. I believe the original model is held by the D-Day museum in Portsmouth. And is this the model Bailey Bridge you are referring ...

Here's a bit of fun - RC'd Aerosan, from the DML kit

This has been uploaed to Youtube, it's pretty cool and given the Winter that's predicted for the UK this year it might actually be a fun conversion!

Re: 1/6th scale kit of Sherman Ic Firefly with Hybrid hull

Yes, indeed! When the PzII came out I didn't think that it could be RC'd and then lo and behold up pops some German chap who'd done just that. They can probably be made to creep across carpet but maybe not meet the challenges that you guys throw at a tank. Still nice to see them appearing though, a ...
