Ficht mein alte stieffeln, are those Spartan MCT in the middle? I still have nightmares about those bloody things.

I imagine at 1/144 scale they are only marginally less accessible to work on than the real thing
They are, I remember the way the missile carriers used to wobble about!

Some excellent work there BB! How do you manage to focus on something that small? I have enough problems with 1/35 scale!
I have a BFO magnifier and reading glasses!
 
First time she’s seen most of it in all its glory……

Still got some more to go through……

can’t find the Cromwell box anywhere!

at this rate, I’ll be 400 years old by the time I’ve built this lot. 3 weeks work for @SPROCKET321!

I'm now sorting them out:

WW2 fixed wing (US, British & German) sub categries of fighter, light/medium bomber and heavy bomber!
Cold War (British)
Modern fast Air (US and British)
Helos

Armour should be entertaining!

I shudder to think how much there is here and where the F is that Cromwell?

You're just trying to make me feel better....

I can not believe how much i've amassed. I've got more British Armour than the British Army. I'll never build it all in a million years. I do two kits a year at best.

I'm doing pretty well with the 2 Challys and the Mat has come along pretty well. I should have primer on the first Chally tomorrow. OK - so the Wokka has gone slow again....

and she got to see the stash too?

found it. Well actually she found it. In her clothes draw in the spare room. Feck knows why it was there. She tries to tidy me into non existence from time to time, like there is no sign of male life in the house.

anyway

I was after these. They cost a small fortune and as I was soldering, I thought I may as well do them while I’m on.

you need a little man cave, with a padlock on it.

Do like the spread of subjects in your stash, is that Matchbox Puma on the top the 1/32nd scale one? Made that in 82 as a result of my Platoon doing Heli drills.
The front canopy fit vexed me at the time.

I suppose AI can she where she’s coming from when she whinges about the models
