Excellent plastic modelling, scratch build wargaming ships and big steam engineering stuff. Loved the Armoured Ship.

And some odd items left over...

Original Airfix bagged kits and their completed models, fantastic idea...




Lovely, shiny, fresh out of the Porsche factory paintjobs on these tanks. The person who painted these must be proper talented, and modest O0




And I couldn't end on another subject, so it had to be...RUST! Very nice renditions on new rolling stock for the Broke Brick Mining Company.
Excellent event, full marks to all who attended, and heres looking forward to next years event.

Loved the Armoured Ship.

Any idea of the name?

Also what is the tank type  in post 5 (22 on the turret I think)?

I think the Armoured Cruiser is a semi-scale Good Hope Class ship, the tank is a KV-2a, built on a Heng Long KV-1 chassis with a scratch built turret, silghtly different design to the one Tamiya sell for £900!
