More international arms dealing

It is always encouraging to be reminded that people actually read my ramblings.  One such reader is Col of the very splendid Col's tanks blog.  Noticing what some others have suggested is my 'addiction' to Solido die-casts, Col mentioned that he had a surplus M-41 SP gun.  "Would I like it for my Little Cold Wars project?" He asked.  An arrangement was soon made and the thing arrived from Australia a few days ago.
Here it is - a lovely model with the bonus of a firing gun!  British readers may be
 more familiar with the bigger and only slightly less pleasing Dinky version of the M-41.
Another view.  A light coating of dust seems to have been fitted as standard to Solido models!
And here is a real one.  It's not as nice, is it?

So thanks again to Col!

Speaking of which, I came home tonight to find a big box from China. . .

Just the thing to turn the Red tide storming acros Knickerbocker Heights, or is it Knuston Hall?

If the tide is too overwhelming, one can of course just throw it at the opponent...

Sounds like you are getting into the spirit of Little Cold Wars!
