A crop of huts for 50p
At the London model engineering exhibition (report coming up on Sunday) I picked up a bag from a box marked, "Everything 50p".
Inside were the models above. A Bachmann portaloo, Merit K6 telephone box and 4 Hornby fogman huts.
I'm not sure why I handed over my money - probably for the portaloo which is part of a set containing several pre-painted figures and therefore costs a lot. You never know when you need a portaloo.
What I don't understand is the 4 fog huts. Who needs 4? How did anyone end up with so many? If I remember rightly, these are supplied one to pack with two other plastic huts. Presumably someone has been buying lots of huts and decided to dispense with the extras that were surplus to requirements.
Hopefully I'll find a use for them although I suspect a long period in my stash of bits beckons first. If anyone is expecting a lot of foggy weather on their model railway, please feel free to make me an offer...
