More gangsters from red Box

This lot of ugly so and so´s are what I like to call the "hoodlums" of the set.
Here they can be seen ignoring all the local road safety laws to have a friendly game of baseball in the middle of the high street. The game has evidently has turned a bit nasty!! Slugger Jones is facing down Wee willy the Knife whilst one of Sluggers team mates tries to introduce his bat to willys head from behind.. Molly the Moll is pondering what to do with her switchblade whilst her husband, Grumpy Joe just looks on....grumpily.
 There is, hidden amongst the rather large amount of Flash, some interesting and original details...like the fact that Willy is holding a pair of Knuckle dusters in his left hand.....how unsporting is that??!

Revell Sopwith F.1 Camel

This time the kit didn´t come with a potted history of which day of the week it was flown over somewhere by Lt general so and so. It did come with a nice little set of playing cards, but unfortunately they were very small and dreadfully thin, so I stuck a couple of them on the wings in case the pilot got bored whilst flying. 
This time I used stretched sprue to construct the rigging, a bit better than waxed sowing thread but still a pain in the backside to fit. If I build this plane again (not this particular one, that would be silly) I would add a couple of extras...lewis gun, windscreen etc.
