That Warm Fuzzy Feeling....

"She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts kid!" H.Solo Star Wars Episode 4 - A New Hope
....that only comes when you have won something ridiculously cheap on Ebay! In this case - 99p plus postage!

Pictured above is the latest addition to my Minifigs/BMC ship collection currently earmarked for the Fezian and Rusland navies. She is a BMC die cast model in need of some painting TLC and by way of identification she has B3 stamped on her stern so once again I shall have to take a dip into Conways.

I was really pleased to have acquired this and reckon that all I now need is probably another couple of models and the entire collection is good to go on the paint tray.

She will be the Fezian fleet flagship and, with the startling degree of originality I am famed for, will probably be the 'not-the-Messudiye'.

A Turkey is for life and not just for target practice, ahem, Christmas....;-)

She does rather look at the moment like those pictures of the Vizcaya, Almirante Oquendo etc after they sunk and burned at the battle of Manila - but I'm sure will scrub up nicely - an excellent bargain, anyway!

Hi SoS,

She looks far better in the metal so to speak and I can't wait to get her cleaned up and painted.

She was actually cheaper than a 1/3000th model!

All the best,
