Send three and fourpence ...

A few careful purchases on eBay has ensured that I have some more Corgi tanks to add to my existing fleet. This morning's post included two small parcels that contained an additional Pzkpfw IV and four T34/76 tanks.



Thanks to Tim Gow telling me about the existence of a long-barrelled version of the Corgi Pzkpfw IV, I specifically looked for examples of this model when I searched eBay ... and bought three, two of which have yet to be delivered.

The four T34 tanks – plus another two that are on their way to me – means that I should end up with thirteen T34/76 and ten T34/85 tanks with which to counter any German tank force.

  1. Hi Bob,

    A real 'Red Steamroller' then? Quantity has a quality all of its own!

    Very nice looking models and I did not know about the long barreled Panzer 4 from Corgi either!

    All the best,

  2. David Crook,

    Stalin may have been wrong about many things ... but not in this instance.

    If you want to, you can regard a mighty phalanx of T34s rolling towards you as a target-rich environment ... or you can question whether you will be able to 'kill' them all before they 'kill' you; it is all a matter of how you see things!

    The long-barrelled Pzkpfw IV is a very nice model, and I am glad that I will have some in my collection.

    All the best,

    Bob

  3. A search of my own 'war surplus' stocks has yielded a further Pz4. I'll bring it along next time I see you.
