A very Merry Christmas!

This year, I must have been a very Good Boy, for Santa was so very nice to me I can't believe it!

First up, I was involved in Ians Secret Santa project, where some nice person sent me this packet, containing one of these beauties:Ford F30 30cwt LRDG 4x2 Truck with 3A1 Steel Body 
If you read this blog regularly, you'll know where the idea came from. I have built one just like it and I am really looking forward to building this one. Perhaps I'll modify it a bit to take a heavy weapon or to carry stretchers, we'll see.

Ian also ran a Painted Santa. In this, I was lucky beyond belief. I sent of  a figure painted to the best of my ability which I consider decent but not special, and I got this:

Un-fecking-believable! Look at the skill here! The figures are from Artizan with a plastic Perry placed next to them for size reference. This MG team will form the core of my 28mm Desert forces, who so far consist of three painted Perry plastics.

From the light of my life,my girlfriend, I got the first season of Girls und Panzer on Blu-ray. It was imported from the US but still worked fine in our European PS3

From my Resin Relatives I got a Girls und Panzer mug. 

 Bestest friends Vicky and Icke gave me this book. It has Lovecraft and Poe in it!

 My buddy Jimski out in California knew I had an interest in ACW and in King Tigers!

From fellow Scandinavian Lardie Jocke came these two. I am especially moved by this as they were left to him by his father. I will treasure them!

All in all an extremely good Christmas both when it comes to time with friends and family and presents. I shall make it a priority to finish all the books during the coming year.
A big thanks to all of you!

  1. What a nice bunch of gifts you have.

    All praise for the Secret Santa and Santa Clause really goes to Cath for running them for me and for all who took part with all the wonderful gifts


    1. You are all worthy of the highest praise, Ian. Rest assured I will participate next year. It was also very satisfactory to note that my painted figure sparked a whole new project and my unpainted figures are already painted by the new owner.

  2. Somebody must have been a very good boy! ;)

    1. Either that, or my friends are far too nice. I think I'll go with your version, it feels better! ;-)

  3. A lovely bunch of gifts. Lucky man!
