Re: Kelly Country: Australian folklore and Gn15

the hobby waits. I think it's better to know there's work waiting than be resentful that work is taking us away from other interests.

Re: Tracktors 1/24 scale

the Heller kit looks like it would offer some good parts. I think a resin casting of the seat would sell quite well, too.

Re: ICM Female Mechanics 1910

I tried to find a "review" of these figures but no luck.

Q: are they molded in one piece? separate arms or legs or head? are the torsos in halves like so many 1/35 scale kit figures?

good potential and kudos to ICM for interesting subjects.
