|The packs as they come (yep, I know it's a shit photograph)|
First up then are these two packs of bikes, three different colours per pack, so I bought two packs to include each of the four colours available.
I'd spotted these a while ago and didn't get the there at the first opportunity, I was very happy to find them again as I missed out so many times not purchasing something the first time around!
|Sid with the bikes, showing how good (imo) they are scale-wise.|
|Sid showing the scale isn't bad at all.|
I decided though that it would be worth a little effort to 'sav' it (and for a £1 I thought it was worth a punt)
|Have you spotted the unwanted "feature" yet?|
|How about now ? (The arrow shows the pull-string thing)|
Once out the packaging it's revealed as a pull the cord and watch the this 'fly' along the floor, couple that with the truly awful wheel assembly sitting on the underside.
I foresee a lot of sawing and filing to get this into any semblance of a usable model.
I haven't a clue what make it's meant to be either, which won't help with the paint-job it'll need (maybe it'll just end up black!)
|The close up view -aaarrrghhh!|
There were several, differing only in the stickers that had been applied and the one I plumped for was the one with the US flag on it (naturally), the other choice being Australia!
Whilst it's very basic (no interior detail etc.) the scale is quite good. It will add to the general gridlock chaos on my roads and shouldn't look too out of place.
|A bus' rear end!|
She thought they were either dress 'buttons' or cake decorations.
I on the other and saw cabbages and flower beds!
I didn't think to take a photograph of them sans-packaging, with Sid for scale, another time maybe.
|Photoshopped to show all the 'intersting' sheets (and photographer's shadow)|
Though maybe not immediately apparent from my photo collage these are pages from a "Basic Art" design pad (or so the blurb says). It consists of 30 sheets 6" x 6" with three sheets of each different one. I've shown the ones with what I consider the most interesting ones from my viewpoint would be very useful as wall paper for some of my scratchbuilt buildings. The sheets not shown are rather bland colours but still usable.
There is at least one other pack, but with different designs.
Despite my best efforts at using photoshop the pieces are very difficult to see.
I though of particulal interest to some gamers would be the mammoth (bottom right) which maybe would be a little too small for 28mm figures, is probably near enough in scale for 15mms, the other dinos less so.
I have no actual use for these, but having missed out in the past I did think I would purchase the pack anyway and to my delight I got it for 50p ! Poundlandbargain world after all!
So, two weeks ' worth of pocket money just frittered away, but I was very happy with all my 'bargain' buys.
That's it then for another week, but I would like to add that I have ticked off another item from my 'Bucket List', namely taking part in the 'Gladiatoris kickstarter!.
