Hi Guys,

Wow the Ardwell set is really coming on and what a great set of photos. That church is some piece of work, the photos I have seen before don't do it justice but when you see Clive stood next to it, the spire must be 7'-8' tall!:shock: I see Robert's done a sterling job with the (Action Figures) for you.

Nice to see Clive's scratch built Russian fire engine after hearing so much about it 8), very impressive, more so when you know there is very little info on it, well done Clive.

Well done Guys, keep up the good work 8)

Paul.

Likewise Richie good to finally meet you, I love the 2nd and 4th pictures got to be my favourites, cheer Paul, the problem with the figures is just when you think you have enough, the Ardwell crew build more, so I need to get more :lol:

This weekend we though to add a allied element to the dio, and dead handy Richie brought his Sherman. I'm now looking for a broken 1/6th allied fighter for the next time I go up.

A fantastic weekend, so tired and de-stressed.

Hi Richie,

Just watching the video of Clive's fire engine thinking it'll be good if the ruskie actually had water coming from the hose and hey presto Clive's done it again :lol: Fantastic fire engine and fantastic running ground, it's got to be the best in the UK if not the world. The work that's gone into that is superb. Well done to all involved :wink:

Thanks Ant
