New arrivals today.

This one comes with a 54mm figure, coin and picture.



Looking at getting the RB river patrol boat which I've been after for a while but saw this on their site and as you can see couldn't resist.

Nice haul Warren, couple there I'd like in my stash.

Any way the Ark has finally hit UK shores and is in stock at Hannants which means I'll be picking mine up in August

And I still have a huge stash to tide me over. Just greedy I suppose.

Same here, same here. I have enough to keep me going until I'm 150 at the very least, thing is I build fast but then hit the buffers when it comes to paint.

Cheers Luciano.

I don't really know why I was a bit put out... I have the 1/200 HMS Rodney and Pontos set, and 1/200 HMS Hood on the way.

And I still have a huge stash to tide me over. Just greedy I suppose.

Jan, Warren glad you've found the Ark as there is still no sign of them here in the UK, although I have one on 'pre'-order to collect in August if it has turned up by then.

Well its the Ark Royal, so UK modellers are going to be the last to get it We have a few very nicely supplied LHS in the Wien-Bratislava-Budapest area and however strange that might sound I do shop for models "abroad" its 40-50 minutes with a car and the curency is the same

Geez! I pre-ordered mine months ago and haven't heard anything about it yet...

Just checked the website and it says July release. Where did you get yours Naseby?



Hi Warren

I was at southern model expo on Queen's birthday long weekend here in Melbourne and a couple of retailers had the Ark for sale-could it be an Adelaide thing?

Try Models and Hobbies 4u in Boronia, or Metro Hobbies in Box Hill.



Good tip Russell. Metro had them.

Thanks for the extra info Jan.

Hi Warren, there are many reasons why I think would love to live down under - Australia's access to the world's model ship marked is certainly not one of those reasons

She's on sale in Europe since late April / early May, I got mine about two weeks ago, but only because I had the order combined with some other stuff that was out of stock. First shops here are already sold out, but I'd think they will re-stock. 115 +/- a little is about the standard price now. I got mine for 119.

Cheers,
Jan

I picked this one up at my LHS last week. Didnt pre-order or anything, just saw it on their web, so I got in the car went over there and bought it. 113 Euro was the bill. The kit looks very nice and a good deal for the money. It has a big set of PE including full railing. One downside however is that there is no option for the elevators to be lowered. The only option is to have them level with the deck.

Back from an armour show today and found a few marine related items and one little armour purchase.




These last items are resin N gauge or 1/150 scale close enough for 1/144, they are LCM IV, LCM VI, LCA and in the long pack a LCT IV, the little armour item not in the picture is a Churchill AVRE which will be part of the load for the LCT.

Thanks Dave,

Approximately Lots! to say the least. it will be a while before I get round to this on.

Somewhat less than 300, Like anything I look around, and have a word with a trader that I count as a friend (in this case he called me. Knows me too well)

Minor technicalities Mark,

Not totally sure I have, but I will manage somehow. With this ship could not resist it.
