Spares Box - part 2

As previously mentioned, here are more spares boxes.  These are filled with various bits of (mostly) 1/72, 1/76 and 1/87 scale vehicle kit bits.  While a a load of random bits line the bottom of the box, I tend to leave some stuff on the sprue - such as the Panzer II turret in the bottom right of the first box.  The spares cull I carried out a couple of years ago yielded the parts for a number of complete models, so assembling them created a bit of space.
More spares boxes soon!
This box started off as mostly Airfix bits but such order never lasts long!  A look in the boxes always yields some surprises - like the Austin K-6 chassis.  I wonder how that came to be 'spare'.
The surprise in this box was a pretty well complete Airfix DUKW.  I recently liberated a pair of KV-1 turrets from this box.  More about them later.
An almost-forgotten annexe.  his seems to mostly contain trailers and WW1-type artillery.  And more of the inevitable Airfix T-34 turrets.

Sorry - I'll be hanging on to that box! I'm not sure I really have a 'spare figures parts' box but I'll see what I can do.
