Alan, did you win the Irish Sweepstakes?

These Resicast kits ain't cheap, Matey.

But another fine review from our resident Resicast expert.

Hi Bill,

I usually order something up every 4 to 6 weeks depending on what bills I have to pay. The wobblly pound didn't help much this year though. I buy direct from Graham so if he remembers I get a 10% discount as a regular customer and that helps.

The problem with being interested in the British genre is that many of the things I'm interested in just are not available in plastic at the moment and with limited scratch building skills resin is the only other option.

Take the trailers, apart from the Italeri Jeep trailer and the old fuel trailer which I believe is actually a Water Trailer (?) there simply are none available in plastic, yet there are at least 49 types I could list, but like many British Trucks these are not available in plastic.

Things in the Allied camp are certainly looking up, never been better in fact, but there are still a lot of gaps especially around 1/35 trucks, artillery and trailers.

Mind you if one manufacturer goes down the gap, others will follow which is always good news.
