Souvenirs of our recent cruisePosted: January 19, 2016
- A large piece of 2m x 2m green polyester felt
- A large piece of 2m x 2m tan polyester felt
(Both of these were bought in a haberdashery shop in Madeira and were being sold at about half the price of similar felt in the UK. These will eventually become terrain cloths … I hope!)
- Two new flags to add to my collection.
The flag of the Canary Islands (Spain)
The flag of Gran Canaria (Spain)
- A number of metal and plastic die-cast models
A 1:1200th-scale model of a fast battleship/battle cruiser of the Kongo-class
A pair of 1:100th-scale models of Il-2 Sturmoviks
A 1:100th-scale model of a Yak-3 fighter
Not a bad haul, even though I say it myself!
