Wobbly Ones
« on: February 29, 2016, 09:45:37 AM »
First tank (Pankraz all power) Panzer 111 white washed by brush bodgy then weathered to extreme with rattle cans upgraded metal drive sprockets idlers and tracks after some clown :o drove it off the kitchen bench! came up pretty good after some minor surgery, M41A3 Walker Bulldog (Oli named after a mates father Oliver Walker still flying light aircraft and riding motorcycles at 84 ) amazing Chap painted under direction and weathered by mate text on side reads 38th and back refer to 38th parallel Korea good story on this one bought second hand swapped for my jagdpanther missed it so much bought it back LOL , thirdly my Jagdpanther ( Gerwulf spear wolf) brush cam job and weathered by mate again finished weathering by myself Ok more to come just need little time for photo shoots. OK Hobby Engine Abrams ( Abe original I know )  Oz style with Nato Green Black  painted commander to Oz cam and extra sand weathering upgraded to linked tracks etc bought second hand $70 whilst P3 was off the road this was the first RC tank I saw in a disposal store and thought RC tanks what a cool Idea and the rest they say is history $$$$. Stug 3 Rotger (famous Spear ) Michael Whitmann operated one of these before progressing to Tigers this is where he gained valuable skills used on the Tigers bought second hand from friend so no credit there except for luggage 1/18 scale bread bags canteens water bottles and two 44 gallon drums it been upgraded metal hull wheels tracks gear box's so cool but weighty little unit my most expensive buy but worth it one of my favourite tanks!. Tiger 1 early (Bernhard bold as bear) inherited / bought from mate who passed away I actually bought the tank for him through eBay he painted it the figure and weathering I just added the flag nice unit none smoke or sound but nice to drive so that's it for a bit stand by for winter Tiger 1  ;D

Wobbly reverts to childhood
« Reply #7 on: March 29, 2016, 09:27:29 AM »
Righto troops since I had four days and needed space to put my newly acquired Kettenkrad I had to move things around on my shelves and thought whilst doing so I take some photos what we have here is a Product called Cobi manufactured in Poland basically Lego and they do some wicked WW2 stuff but that seems to be only overseas so this stuff I found local the Tank $13.00 I was looking for a magazine found this, tank wins it is now our club Mascot and the kids love it. The MASH unit 4077th come on who didn't play with Lego and watch MASH while growing up not many I would bet! $24.00 with a Bell helicopter and the JEEP which is actually a licenced product and looks the goods and again the kids love it, the howitzer well its a big ass gun, had to get it and the buggy hello Mad Max both about $9.00 each so cheap so all a bit of fun and very therapeutic some people colour in children's colouring books I build Lego for fun and stress relieve. Oh the small arms are from a mob in the States called battle Bricks they specialize in Lego compatible stuff and are good models of M4's and HK etc. Enjoy

You need an Elmod unit for those.  I'll help.

Ka-Boom!  Ack, ack, ack, ack!  Ba ah ah ah ah!  Ping, ping!

Actually, I am of the Lincoln Logs and Tinkertoys generation.  I did see the original M*A*S*H film, but not the television series until two years ago. (However, then I watched the whole series three times over.)  Now here are a few television programs from my teenage years: “McHale’s Navy,” “Hogan’s Heroes,” “Combat,” “The Rat Patrol,” “Twelve O’Clock High.”

Ah yes I too recall McHale's Navy Hogan's Heroes just recently bought the box set, twelve O'clock high very cool both the movie and series have a couple on VHS and black and white remember that LOL and Combat starring Chris Morrow my bosses name alas he is nothing like the character he portrayed :( and Baa Baa Black sheep VMF 214 if I remember correctly don't think I have seen the Rat pack and really MASH that is hard to believe did you know that even though it was set in Korea the story was actually based about the Vietnam war but was a little close to home at the time thus the Korean campaign. A couple of my favourites are Tour of Duty and Band of Brothers and Generation War based on the German aspect of WW2 worth seeing if you can find it 8)

Oh, yes, Wobbly: having seen the original M*A*S*H* movie, I was well aware of the television spin-off and both the movie's and the television program's intentional relevance to the Vietnam War.  In fact, when the television version was new, my father (a WWII South Pacific veteran) called me to urge me to see it.  So I did see one or two shows.  However, as remarkable as you might find it, I had and still have no television (although I do watch DVD movies).  The circumstances are odd, but because I live in a dense woods, downhill on a steep hillside, in a rural area, satellite signals are blocked and there is no cable, nor any likelihood of its ever being installed.  Regardless, when I did have access to television signals over the years, I always found books more interesting.

As my wife's Alzheimer's progressed, she could settle down by watching videos of movies, Columbo, or M*A*S*H, so in the evenings I went through many DVDs with her.  I was glad to see the M*A*S*H series three times, as I found something interesting each time.

Now I  will look for DVDs of "Tour of Duty," "Band of Brothers" and "Generation War."  I also want to see some of "Black Sheep Squadron," and I have a friend who can record the programs for me.

If you have not already seen these films, check out the old and still excellent "The Train," and then "Monuments Men," both about Nazis taking art out of France.

Wow really no TV that's amazing but in retrospect could be a good thing I too love books and alas don't read as much as I used to I honestly don't watch as much TV either by the time I get home and have dinner its off to bed 1930 just from pain good to be able to lay down, any way onwards so yes two good movies another series is The Pacific that was after Band of Brothers both are HBO so should be readily available stateside  OK good luck hope you find them Tour of Duty has 15 DVD's so that will keep you going for a bit  8)

OK latest acquisition arrived yesterday Leopard 2 recovery Vehicle by Dinky paid fifty plus fifteen postage but what a rare piece in good nick san ariels and stickers with working boom and blade.

Hi Wobbly
The Dinky Cent brings back memories - my uncles had one, it suffered battle damage to the floor plate when they put a Mighty Cannon firework under it in one of their battles-  the metal plate bent inwards.
Nice collection.

Yes, the fun police have pretty much killed that. Used to have battles using Airfix 1/32nd soldiers on each side, which we'd shoot with slug guns, then later with airsoft BB guns.

Retired my large 1/72nd collection of tanks (100 odd) with  simulated napalm strikes & Double Happy artillery stonks, when I decided to go to all 1/35th back in the early 80's.

I had the civilian version of the crane , yellow paint.
Is the extendable part of the crane plastic as are the outriggers?
It was only about 2 years ago the oldies got rid of it. :'(



This is the exact one , almost looks like mine when I last saw it.
