Where is that?
They're in the process of moving to larger premises this weekend. I can let you know of their new address when they announce it if you'd like. They used to be on Hindley Road, Daisy Hill (sorry, not quite Bury, but close).

I know that one, Mike's shop. One of the lads who works for him is ex mob, I'm not sure what cap badge though.

There's a model shop in Bury, a real brick one that does internet/Facebook too.

MJR Models, brilliant little shop, proper good selection of kits and all really good prices. Been a few times myself and always seem to come away with an empty wallet.

Is that before or after you shot it with the air rifle?

Yep, made hundreds of kits as a boy.

All engaged and destroyed in a prolonged contact when they were completely outgunned by the air rifle.

Great pictures!
 
Having done the Spit for my mates newborn, I seem to have caught the bug again (it comes and goes every 6 to 12 months or so).
Just had a look at my stash, and wondering which one to do. I don't think it will be the Fe2b as that will take a bit of a run up before I do another Wingnut Wings model as the Albatross rigging was a PITA and the FE has a hell of a lot more.

at least you know the Swordfish will fit together no problem. And it will look like a showpiece with the floats.
 
I may have a miss-match here, I can't find anything on the internet to suggest the M5 high speed tractor towed the 155mm long Tom M2, I found an M4 tractor towing one. I think Hasagawa goofed, and so have I.

I appreciate the fact that the lower two pictures are of models, but obviously someone else thinks the M5 was used as a prime mover for the M155.
