What you could do, Steve, is get a marmalade or jam jar and start putting coppers and small change into it. 1p. 2p, 5p out of your pocket. It soon mounts up and you can get change bags from your bank and swap the change for notes and coins.


Once you have got enough together then buy what you want.... it's your hobby dosh!


I was going to recommend this for your Christmas

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Meng-Model-1-35-VS-009-British-Army-Husky-TSV-Tactical-Support-Vehicle/173572277803?hash=item2869b6c62b:g:-uoAAOSwT-Bbtv6t


£29.80 including shipping...... half the price than the UK price... or at least a substantial saving. but the Tamiya Chieften is not a bad kit, but very dated. It is on my short list for the 12 days of Christmas build


This is too, if it is available.

Great advice James :D I've been doing it with my "change" for years, you will be surprised how soon it mounts up, when it's time to "cash in" I take mine to Tesco (larger branches) have a "coinstar" machine, quick and easy to use, they do take 8% of the total but it goes to a charity so it's win win for all.

Like the. Husky , love the E 100 . Correct about the Chieftain being old just like the Bismarck you warned me about its got holes in for RC and no decking on sponsons, but it's another i wanted to get of childhood list I missed. When you look at these old kit's that at the time were cutting edge and then look at a new kit and see how far kits have advanced . Totes amazeballs :o

Outstanding bike, Les. Judges thought so too. you should be proud!

Those nippers are unbelievable! I will do a review of them. Their drill set is on my list to get on Thursday!

https://www.brevecomodelling.nl/index.php/en/shop/tools/hand-drill-set.html

I will also look on Ebay for extra drill sets of sizes not in the box!

I haven't hardly put down the manual for the Ki-45 "Nick" It is a very involved build and I will have to look closely at the paints they list. some just don't look right to me, especially with Xtreme metal and Metal Colour now available.

My Band of Brothers were amazed at my builds.... They didn't make the stand as the focus was on the Lancaster but Neil, the boss thought the builds were fantastic and although they were sat in their carry box with no lid on there were people stopping, looking and taking photos of them :D.

I have one or two minor repairs to do when I get back and then I shall post finished pictures of them! I really need to look at some proper carry boxes or figure out how to make them! lugging them round the country by train in a cheap Ikea plastic box is not very ideal!

Just looking at the social media pages, looks like Telford was a roaring success, what with two Lancasters on display and the inspired touch of a seperate cockpit as a saleable part, which just scream modifications all over it.

Airfix new 1/24" Hellcat F6F-5 which looks just awesome.

Then many other launches of model as well.

SSSHHHHHH! :whistle: ,

OK, the class my bike was in was 96 which only models nominated by your own ipms branch can enter, these models are voted for by other ipms members only, as I understand it they can be made of virtually anything.


Thankyou Steve for the K.
