The Hunt

As you all know I am collecting model kits  of British Tanks 1.35 scale and in previous blog, you can see I have just finished the Churchill Tank Mk IV. The next Tank I want is a British CruiserTank A34 Comet 1.35 scale.


I went on Amazon ,Ebay on-line model shops etc no such luck. I then find out that there is no British company's left that make model tanks. If this is true or not I don't know, so the hunt was on for my tank.
I found out from the internet that a company called Bronco a Chinese company.that they did make a Comet kit but the don't make it any more. I am now screaming at this stage.


I scanned online shops that dealt with second hand model kits but no such luck. but I saw the light it was


    I saw the Bronco kit 3 days to go and no bids Fran put a notice in front of the pc at work so I wouldn't forget the sale finishes at 12:30pm I waited for the last minute even then I nearly messed it up and the Angry lurker stepped in fast and got my bid in and I won yippie I paid via PayPal straight away. It arrived the following day how quick was that fastest service I have ever had. Well here is some  pictures of the kit.
