Darren Baker takes a look at Bits & Bobs and Odds & Ends, a great selection of those smaller items that we usually wish we had on hand, or possibly didn't even know were available.

Darren,

What a truly useful review! As an enlistee for the Military Engineering campaign I'm off to the scale ship's chandlers with your review in my pocket...

Good review those are great stuff indeed

Really make a nice add-on to an M88 or wrecker.

Might have to snatch up one

Thanks for the review.

So who sells this fine stuff here in the US Of A?

Thank you for the positive feedback firstly. as stated most of the items are from RB Models and I know that TankRat stocks their barrels in the USA, I in no way endorse this retailer. I would still look at JB Models.eu as postage from him to the USA judging by reviews of barrels (done by Bill I believe) that have been ordered from JB Model is very good, you also do not pay VAT if ordering from outside the Europe. Again thank you for replying.

Tom make sure you measure the parts you are replacing, as it is a very easy mistake to make as a size on paper seems smaller or bigger than you realise.

I note that someone didn't find this review helpful which is no big thing as regards the review, but could that person please send me a PM or make a post here as to why they hold that opinion. I am not annoyed but I am interested in trying to increase and improve the reviews value to members, and your opinion may help in that endeavour.
