  • LocationDevon knows ! Now where did I put that cake tin ?

Posted 10 October 2018 - 22:33

Oh yes, please.

Speaking of BIG guns, I may get around to making my kit of this one which when completed measures over 1m in length !

There are over 1000 parts to put together, upon looking in the box I must say that the injection mouldings and etched parts do look very crisp. It would see me through a long winter I suppose ! Nah ! Leave it alone for now, onwards with my 7mm layout much more fun.

True, but Airfix for some strange reason don't do a kit of it...

 

They only do the LCVP (which was used by the Royal Navy) and the LCM


 

DUCK!!!

LCA's were used to land the US Rangers at Pointe du Hoc on 6th June 1944.

 

I think it is Minifigs who do a LCA.

 

LCMs were not used until after the beaches where secure,and mainly transported stores and ammunition from the ships and LSTs to the beach.

I can't see the Barry B1 being a viable RTR model, enough variations in Barry days let alone all the changes the GWR made. Still if it does happen I would add some to my fleet.

Could you "unrebuild" a Dukedog?

Quite possibly, it certainly looks like the Bachmann model was designed to be back dates.

I keep thinking about selling my Finney Dean Goods kit / inside motion to fund a Finney curved frame bulldog, but it’s a class you really need a few of for Brent given the amount used on double headed services

Bulldogs I've 2 on the go, I went for some small DS10 motors so there was no show on the footplate they won't cut the mustard so there's 2 DS13 ready to go in then when I can be @rsed

they will show but the crew should hide most of it, the tenders are already made Hornby Grange underframes with Bachmann 3500 gal tank tops they look better than the kit one's the frames

have pick ups build in to aid current collection.

I do love a good whishlist.

 

Being a D&E muddler, the D&E locomotive section is so so so exciting, the DMU section doesn't fill me with hope and the EMU......who is interested and who cares........

 

I did notice the 150 ton Weltrol EN with its cantilevers, two 80 ton warwells and the two 4 wheeler flatrols hasn't made the list again. Can but hope, but will it go round my 2nd radius curves?
