Bit of a laugh

Anyone else splashed out £2 on D'Agostin.... tiger tank. Its very nice if
bit out of place, but with some branches on it who can tell whose side it
was on ?
Cheers,

Nah, they'd run out in my local newsagents, got the 1:43 scale tractor instead, marginally more useful from a model railway perspective ;-) very nice little model.

perhaps, but now have an excuse to build a couple of Spitfires and messers.. those german ones. Add a few airfix soldiers. Run LMS red and wartime black to create a what if around 1943.
you can have a ...erm ... farm ?
Also when tot asks where's his diesel, can say it got blown up by Tiger tank, but you - ploughed by a tractor perhaps ?

Thanks for that, have spent quite a bit of time trying to justify not modelling the Eastern Front - lack of RTR seemed a poor excuse.

If you pick the right date nothing would be running on the eastern front - but you'd need a good supply of bangs, flashes and smoke!

.... but in fact one was shipped to the UK in 1943 :-

it will be allowed an occasional cameo role along with spifire and hurricanes perhaps.
Cant do much with this weeks 1984 model of a Challenger though.

What, the famous Airfix model with the missing outer wheels, track guards and radio box?

Hurray, I get to ask - presume its german as the fokker's a red triplane, but what type is it ?
Cheers, Simon

Of course it's German - what type? I'd have to look it up. AFAIK there was only the one type - they were only in front line service for a few months until the Brits realized that while they were highly manuverable, their top speed was way below the best Brit. machines.
