Santa visits Boyes Superstore

I picked up from a thread on TMP that Boyes were selling the Plastic Soldier Company kits at half price. Well, that's just too good an opportunity to miss...A trip on Boxing Day to Grantham proved Santa is alive and well, as the feast above shows.

  • A box of five Churchills
  • A box of five Cromwells

It's been a labor of love, with gluey fingers and super glue induced headaches, but at least I'm almost ready for painting. I quite enjoy vehicles as I have a certain formula which seems to work.
