Nuremberg #10: Day 3 Gallery!

by LaToya

Wow, this is great, it's like Toy overload! Yesterday alone, I took about 250 pictures!

I'll be blogging about everything separately, but time is running tighter than I expected, so until I get the chance to write more, you can see the whole Day 3 gallery here

In the meantime, here's a prototype 1/18 Lada from Ixo to be going on with!


I am greatly saddened to report that our friend and Model Kit forum moderator James Bush, known to all on TC as Hippie, has passed away after a period of ill-health.

JSC 295 THV Galatea

by JSCModels

Galatea was built in Gdansk, Poland and launched on 26. July 2006.
The tender was designed to fulfil all tasks connected with service, overhaul and buoy replacement all over the year. Moreover Galatea can do many tasks on high sea - such as towing, hydrographical search, wreck marking, staff and equipment transport. She can also be used as a base for other operating units and helicopters.
THV Galatea was named by Her Majesty The Queen Elisabeth II. The ceremony took place on 17 October 2007 on the River Thames. THV Galatea was berthed side-to-side with HMS Belfast.
THV Galatea was named on untypical way - not straight after launching, but after commissioning and coming from Poland to London.

Galatea zostala zbudowana w Stoczni Po…€šnocnej w Gdansku i zwodowana 26 lipca 2006 r.
Statek zostal zaprojektowany tak, aby sprostac wszelkim zadaniom zwiazanym z obs…€šuga, remontami i wymiana boi przez ca…€šy rok. Oprocz tego Galatea moze wykonywac rozne zadania na pe…€šnym morzu - holowania, badania hydrograficzne, znakowanie wrakow, transport personelu i sprzetu. Moze tez s…€šuzyc jako baza do prac wykonywanych przez inne jednostki oraz helikoptery.
THV Galatea zostala ochrzczona przez sama krolowa brytyjska Elzbiete II. Uroczystosc odbyla sie na Tamizie w Londynie 17 pazdziernika 2007 r.  THV Galatea zacumowa…€ša burta w burte z HMS Belfast.
Sytuacja by…€ša dosc nietypowa, poniewaz Galatea nie zostala ochrzczona od razu po wodowaniu, tylko po ukonczeniu budowy i dop…€šynieciu z Gdanska do Londynu.

In a career spanning more than 40 years Tony Teiger has established an enviable reputation as the doyen of Property Masters. His association with 007 dates back to his work as a Stand By Propman on 1967’s You Only Live Twice.

Tony TeigerTony Teiger, September 2006.

This, the fifth Bond film, took the successful franchise to even greater heights. Starring Sean Connery, Tony’s favourite Bond, the Lewis Gilbert movie was set in Japan and required 007 and a team of ‘Japanese secret service ninjas’ to find and stop the culprit of a series of spacejackings before nuclear war is provoked…

Since then, amongst a dizzyingly list of titles including films such as Operation Daybreak, Force Ten From Navarone, Ghandi, The Far Pavilions, Dry White Season, The English Patient, Highlander 4 and Blade where Tony was in charge as Property Master, Tony renewed his association with James Bond on Pierce Brosnan’s Tomorrow Never Dies. For this and most of his 60+ movies Tony was in charge of an entire department, working as Property Master.
