That's a great bargain. What kit is it Simon.

Hi Ian - Dragon 1/6 German bicycle with Panzerfausts.

The 1/6 kits seem to have limited runs and I missed out getting one of these when they were first released (did manage to get a Wellbike)

Just met a bloke in a local lay-by.... :flushed: He gave me this which I won on eBay for £5. Good way to save on postage!

I've long wanted one of these diddy locos, but it has always gone for silly money. Me happy! :thumb2:

So, while I have you, I assume they are the ones w/gas & snaks. What do you call the wide spots on the narrow secondary roads? PaulE

The big ones with petrol and food are Services, lay-by are the smaller run off areas - just a strip of tarmac at side of the roadway

Forgot to say guys , no aftermarket additions allowed , just what comes in the box . A very small amount of addition is allowed but only things like masking tape seat belts etc , try and keep it simple and quick , cheers tony

Another reminder as per Tony's post yesterday

This build is about making a kit that costs just £5 or less. So please, no after market stuff, just build what is in the box.

This is what the Cosford 'Fun Build' has always been about since it's conception. Making the best we can out of the contents in front of us.

Thanks.
Ron
