New year grumblings - and an over view of 2012
18/12/2012
 

It has been a very busy for us this year. There has been a number of new 'additions' to our stable including the culmination of a few major long term projects along the way, leaving the collection in a very healthy and robust state for 2013.

In a similar vein as may peoples years, 21012 had good times and challenging periods.

The military collectable scene continues to grow as does our enthusiasm, which wasn't dampened by the poor weather, astronomical rise on fuel and consumable prices in 2012!

The growth of the military scene has pushed the costs on items ranging from complete vehicles to the 'once cheap and plentiful' spares to new heights. Once the military scene was a 'cheaper option' to collectors where kit and vehicles were literally sold for scrap prices, but now they have reached all- time highs.

To the right are some interesting pictures of AML's in action and with some rare early pictures of a prototype version in late 50's.  The final colour  pictures are of the recently restored AML refurbished by me this year.
