1/144 RAF WWII GSE - Matador range update !!

1/144 RAF WWII GSE - Matador range update !!
Matador have updated their resin range with some new Austin K6 lorries (trucks) to add to their existing range od Albion support vehicles, Additionally there is a new new RAF Type C Bomb Trolley that appears to come with the option of a 'cookie cutter' or 6 conventional bomb. I have some of the existing releases and they have great detail and nice clean sharp casts, although solid glazing. Still, I'll certainly be looking at these with some interest!

see  Matador Link 1  and  Link 2

Civilian N Gauge Range  (UK 1/148) - Link
CS-N-01 Scammell Haulage Contractor's (or Showman's) Prime  Mover £9.95
Although a the civil version, a little work could make for a passable Scammell R100 Military version?

Aircraft Interiors 1/144:
Although basic by the standard of today, Retrowings, Senworks etc these relatively cheap white metal interiors can help boost some of the older 1/144 kits lacking any real interior. This maybe particularly useful as revell are reissuing (for some unknown delusional reason) all those terrible kits on part with the crown/minicraft ranges of yesteryear!? Link

I feel a trip to Kent may be the order of the day!
