Ooops...

I set up a table for a solo run-through of What a Tanker 6mm last night, and realised that 6 blokes around a table each with one 6mm tank is just not going to cut it, so I popped into a couple of model shops to see what they had.

It turns out they had quite a bit. Do I blame Two Fat Lardies or my own poor impulse control? Anyway, it's done now, so next task is to smuggle them into the house without drawing too much attention to how much I've spent!

  1. For one-on-one tank action, I think bigger is better.

  2. That is quite a selection. Hopefully they are quick and easy ones to build.

    1. To be fair, my wife never complains about my hobby purchases. It’s my own conscience I have to assuage!

    1. Well, I couldn’t leave them! What if I went away, realized I needed something, and when I came back someone else had bought it?! I would never forgive myself :)

  6. Could be that she’ll accept the cover story that your blog was hacked and this post ain’t real...

  10. Yes, keeping the amount of toys secret from the Mrs is a big part of the hobby. Out of sight out of mind! They don't understand why we need so many, I don't either, but I always want to buy more.
