Blimey Blonde this is cracking bit of Kit. Just like our old one !

No1 its bringing back all those old Weymouth memories -

No1 takes a message.

What does it say NoName ?

Could be a decoy Blonde- This label says Diaphragm Expansion Tank!

Clambering up NoName gets to work and soon has the top opened.

Amazing ! two exploration craft ! We haven't seen those since the Amphibious Ops at Bardsea Blonde !

Suddenly NoName hears a muffled cry.

Any one out there

What was that ?

Package evades Gunners supreme commander  5137CBC7-0F98-4659-97F0-66456758667D_zpsrtyscknf

Package evades Gunners supreme commander  AB69CE5D-077D-4C71-B971-11F5209717AA_zpswj7yvfae


Braddock gives RN Diver Campbell a steadying hand .

Blimey mate you have a severe case of Scuba rot  there !

Aye and expansion crack means I've lost me arm too!

Package evades Gunners supreme commander  F15559A3-F662-4267-A525-72DC18E597AB_zps8gscdm3p

Package evades Gunners supreme commander  7B90BB6F-6D7A-4729-8F3F-6C5AB04DC606_zps2erfhqqh

Where are we ? asks Commander Wallace?

Package evades Gunners supreme commander  B4F8810E-87D1-4D37-93B9-295AE2491E0C_zpsy1jcyh0i

You are with the Munrovians now - Gunner can help you and your team return to active VAM service.

Och Really?  that would be brilliant - Our last 1:1 commander explained although he really loved us & was reluctant to let us go, he realised we needed to get back into the VAM game again... and that loft was bloody freezing !!

So here they are ..

The Warwicks' Highland volunteers.

Package evades Gunners supreme commander  CEE62C2A-0C75-4F82-ADB7-91704DAAA952_zpsym8dpjb2

Commander Wallace- some scarring and minus an arm- will he be able to talk again?

Pierre Angus- is  fully fit - just a gripper missing

Package evades Gunners supreme commander  D39AE9AB-EE60-4142-BF2F-51FC5FFE9CE1_zpsaln4oxzd

Corporal Murdo - the fittest of the 5 &  RN Diver Campbell is the biggest challenge- Scuba rot and a replacement arm required.

Package evades Gunners supreme commander  2CE566E3-4CA2-4CDD-A382-ECB389ABC5F4_zps3ennab5o

In the back ground Lancer  Watson- (He has a snapped elbow.( at the back in the white breeches.) and Braddock catch up

Don't worry Watson - Gunner will be able to fix you up !

So the last of 2016 Recruitment drive requested by Major Mike is complete.

Soon they will Join the Munrovians and help them liberate Munrovia from the Invading Dragonians Action Man   cheers cheers cheers

Great haul!!!

I'm sure the Supreme Commander understands the importance of this mission of restoration. That is one nasty case of scuba rot!

Well done!!!

Hi Jim

I'm putting a bit of self restraint into the process ! I've gathered so much stuff in the past 9 months I'm thinking

Blimey better start using what you have got vs just adding more of the same !

So my project list is

1. Finish off 14 platoon
2. Get out the needle and thread and start to repair all the great Uni's I have
3. get the AM's under repair repaired Laughing and into units
4. Repair the Turbo Copters and get that unit airborne
5. Equip the Marx figures with some kit and get them out on patrol.
6. Construct a 1/6th Version of the Airfix Strong point ( long dark winter project) Cool

That will do for starters

Very Happy

You do like the fixer uppers!

The 'To Do' list sounds like a plan too!




Airfix 'Strong point'?

Package evades Gunners supreme commander  Paras

Got this from the toy shop opposite Wandsworth town hall back in the day. It was 50p if I remember correctly.

Hi Steve
yay ! thats the one . Great find for 50p Smile

I had a 1/32nd scale one -Airfix soldiers were another passion Smile 1/72nd & the 54mm kits.

Me and my mates used to do HG Wells Little Wars on a MASSIVE scale lol!

I loved the Multipose sets Cool - lots of fantasy units there too.

So I'll get on to the net and find some scale conversion charts and see If i can remember any of my war-game scratch building skills.

Great additions Gunner ! ,that strong point looks a fantastic 1/6th project , polystyrene is a great medium as is can be cut and shaped !and detail added like bricks and bullet holes in plaster etc. good luck with the build ,would like to see the finished building !

Hi CA

Will do !

There are some great threads on the site to give me loads of ideas and techniques.

I've also bought some 2nd hand "How to build 1/12th Dolls houses" books that also help with techniques.

I want it to be easy to move & store , which I guess means being able to take it to bits Laughing

If you have any photo's of anything you may have built that would be great. Very Happy

Cheers
Steve
