There are quite a few of us, aren't there? And this isn't even all of us - unfortunately quite a few of the staff aren't able to take part this time round. I don't think folks realise how many people it takes to run a group of sites this size

Hi again

Update:
Solarwind Productions "Bryn" 150mm resin fantasy Amazon warrior - 3 votes
Airfix 1/72 scale RAF Rescue Launch - 3 votes
Accurate Miniatures 1/24 scale 1963 Corvette Grand Sport - 3 votes

A 3-way tie! I thought it would be a straight choice between Bryn and the BMW - but the old bone-shaker is nowhere at the moment!

All the best

Hi there

The latest voting for my bundle:

Solarwind Productions "Bryn" 150mm resin fantasy Amazon warrior - 5
Airfix 1/72 scale RAF Rescue Launch - 3
Accurate Miniatures 1/24 scale 1963 Corvette Grand Sport - 2
Revell 1:9 scale BMW R75 and sidecar - 2
