I do believe you are becoming more productive on the figures Gunnar :-D :yeah:

I should have added on a previous post that including puppy photos helps to accumulate likes too.

Very nice and fast delivery, but the box? :eh: :-D

Painting will have to wait for a while because on New Year's Day little Herkules will come to us:

And he is also recently bought! :-D


Glad you liked them, we sent a couple extra figures because you were first customer to the webshop and suspected you wanted the fifer though it wasn't in the shop.

The extras were very nice, but that fifer must be quite powerful to be heard in the cacaphony from the others! :xd: :xd: :xd:

Part of the 10 year plan is a dio containing a camp fire. I wanted to light it up so here's the way. 10 Red 5-12v LEDS Now I only wanted one but they were siold in 10s with free postage so I didn't quite blow the whole budget spending a massive total of 99p (€1.10) :-D

The LEDS

MrsG held the contact with a 9v battery very stylishly.

What happens with the other nine LEDs I'll have to mull over.

In 1.72 I think one led will be blazing enough. Unless, of course, I do 10 campfires :P

It would be cheaper for people to order a set of 10 from China. The postage costs in/from the UK would be silly in comparison.

There again there are people who are willing to pay really silly prices. I see them often, bidding on ebay.

Yes I bought lots of lights from China a few years ago,for street lights,houses,shops and Pubs in Honey Well my mythical town. They all run off a railway transformer just like the trains do that flash past and which are always on time. So no batteries to buy. The circuit takes 28 seconds for each Loco to complete.BB

Managed to buy these at a really cheap price (£3.25 per box incl. postage!).

Do I know what I'm going to do with them? No.

Will they look nice lined up on a shelf with the rest of the collection? YES!!!

When Gunnar was the first to order via the new Speira-Shop, than maybe it was me who placed the last order before the shop was created. I recieved a parcel with a collection of Amos 3D -printed figs some days ago, but never had the time and the patience to check everything - up till today.

Very cool figs and I think this technic will be the future in the hobby. The service was good as well, btw. So I can only recommend!

As Mickey was so curious I waited a while to post what I won with the e-bau auction of Erich.

With the first go I won this:

And in the second wave this:

I also won a box in a bigger scale: HERE ;-)
