|Pete (man with glasses looking very interested) kindly invited us along.|
One thing to note though was the distinct lack of traders :-( lots of second hand stuff being sold by a couple of traders but then not much and mostly Aircraft and mostly the same aircraft. Toy World was selling their stock there but apart from Airfix that there wasn't much. and the second hand guys mostly sold old aircraft kits... good prices but NO figures... Toy World had some but they were the usual Airfix WW2 stuff I did see a few tank kits but very few in 1/72... I did pass up an Abrahms from Hasegawa so there was at least some. anyway still lots to see as it was also a craft show, some cool steam punk stuff also. (my dad almost bought some doctor who stuff, but shhh I didn't tell you that)
|FORMULA 1 cars! Where is the Ferrari? bugger they don't have the right selection of cars.... DID YOU KNOW I HAVE SAT IN MICHAEL SCHUMACHER F1 CAR??? well I did a long, long time ago. it was a Ferrari, therefore the right type of F1 car.|
|spot the Bismark! the tower up the top is to be found out in the Waitamata harbour in Auckland.|
|various scales but we are almost certain the Canterbury here is 1/72 perhaps the one below but not quite sure|
|more ships... can you spot the inaccurate Apache (or Comanche I cannot quite tell) on one of the ships there?|
|More ships! some very nice models but not really useful for my wargaming... unless I did a beach-landing and we had a naval battle|
|This is the sort of thing I would have done... bit of sadness but hey if I did this there would be no Oronegro!|
|anyway perhaps I can sell off some of those trains or something their a bit sad in their current packed away state.|
|OO or 1/76 compatible with my models but for large layouts N scale is better (but costs so much more)|
|I like this one. small but detailed|
|very similar, but different... not much to comment about... not my area of expertise|
|cool! is there any other way to describe this?|
|its all very nice and all but where's the rust and missing paint? these poor things haven't been loved to death.|
|Airfix and something that claimed to be made in Poland yet the spur said made in USSR.|
The lynx also came with a strange container inside, I thought perhaps it contained the missing bit but after getting it open it had some strange plastic thing? anyway looks a bit suspect so I think thats going in the bin... keeping the kit of-course.
Have a good time guys! Looks like there is another event in September I never heard of also so I may go to that. if anyone was wondering I have had a lot of school work and distractions recently so model work is at an all time low.
Finally we come to a new Follower :-) welcome to Nick Johnson from somewhere? I cannot find your blog I am afraid. anyway Welcome to the blog.
have a good queens birthday off all you guys in New Zealand and I hope you all have a good time wherever you are in the world this coming week!
