Its hard not to get inspired at their display stand. They have quite an extensive range and where they usually are located at the Euros they hard to miss. Lots of handy "time saving" items of good quality.
Looks like a great purchase Alan. A bit of paint, some grass and details, this should look great.

I recently bought one of their large Bunkers- couldn't believe the quality of it- hands down the best plaster mould I've ever seen and it didn't feel in the least bit brittle like some do. This sandbag emplacement looks equally as good.

Hi Frank,

Agree.

Hi Karl,

Yes, the bunkers looked terrific as did the rest of their stuff.

This is my altered version as I needed more room on the end for the 25pdr Limber.



I've use two others the railway line I build into the 17pdr dio:



And the street scene which is still a WIP





I was very happy with both offerings and I've no doubt I'll use more as I bought several when I had the chance to avoid the postage.

Cheers

Al

Hi Roman,

Don't know. You wouldn't pay our VAT if it was for export so that might help off set the postage cost. Postage in the UK has gone up a lot these last few years.
