Bassett’s Broken Bits Bonus Box

You’ll no doubt recall this post from last year.  Subsequently I was contacted by a Mr Bassett who asked me not to publish his name again. So I won’t. Anyway, and changing the subject entirely, a few weeks ago I was contacted by ‘John B’ who mentioned that he had located another box of pre-loved plastic. Would I like it?  Well yes, obviously!

On arrival at COW last weekend he duly presented me with the box in the photo.  If anything this is an even more exciting collection than last year’s.  And yes, that is an Fw200 Condor on top  well, most of it.  

Once I’ve had a chance to sort through the contents I’ll post more photos. Some will be beyond rescue but the potential survivors will each be rated for completeness, desirability and work required. 
For the moment please entertain yourself and us all by naming as many models as you can identify. 

Thanks again John! If that’s even your real name.

The contents of that box will provide you with hours of fun Tim and the satisfaction of knowing that you saved them from the dustbin! Enjoy!

It is always enjoyable recovering and reusing unwanted kit.

A box full of plastic airplanes in need of TLC or rough bodging. You must be in hog heaven, or a pig in something.

Remind me not to donate anything anonymously to you.

Some interesting looking stuff in there Tim.

Tim -
Interesting looking AFV .... whatever that is. Since I am near useless on aircraft recognition, I won't try to identify this trove, but I have no doubt will be fun to poke around with. There might have been some bits in there that could have salvaged the 'losers' from last year.

Speaking of which, I was surprised (referring back) to see that pair of Spitfires destined for the deep six. They looked sort of salvageable to me. But I agree, sometimes first impressions of such things are deceptive.

Recycling at its finest! I’m saving the planet here!

I’m confident that several of these wrecks will ‘fly’ again.

A bodged in plastic perhaps? I’m distraught that you don’t approve of my witness protection programme!

Tim Gow said...

Some will be more of a challenge than others to rebuild - and to work into games. But rule nothing out!

The strange AFV is an M-56 Scorpion. A 1950s airportable SP AT gun. Only a lunatic would want one. So now I have two…..
