A Mixed Bargain Hunt
It was a dull, showery sunday, that's how I ended up in the Glasgow Fort shopping centre (not really a fort!) looking for clothes with the family. As I was there I managed to work swinging by HobbyCraft to at least look at their model section and their clearance isle. Thats where found the Airfix German Reconnaisance Kit for £3.49 comprising of a SD Kfz 222 armoured car and a kubelwagon. Should be a nice flexible couple of vehicles (as far as I can tell) so I bought 2 - one for European games and one for Africa settings (I've a box full of Airfix Africa corps and 8th Army sitting around as well).
I also picked up a second box of German infantry (for £2.99) to go with my other one. Just the job!
And finally an impulse buy of 2 boxes of Airfix British Paratroopers. Hmmmm, a bit of a mixed box I must say now that I've looked at them. Strange poses and quite a few of limited use (see plastic soldier review for details), but with effectively 2 boxes for the price of one hopefuly I'll manage a workable strike force from them. Maybe I'll leave the unnecessary impulse buys next time...
