    NO IVAN NO IT DID NOT HAVE ANY MARKINGS UNFORTUNATELY BUT RECENTLY I RECEIVED AN E-MAIL FROM A FELLOW BRITISH MODELLER WHO SUGGESTED THAT THE NAME ON THE FRONT OF THE HULL COULD HAVE BEEN "ADUA" AFTER A BATTLE, THE RAC HAD A HABIT OF NAMING TANKS AFTER BATTLES AS WELL MIND YOU NOTHING CONCRETE JUST A SUGGESTION.


    ADUA makes a bit of sense, I was told there are a series of photos at IWM archives of that Valentine but on their site can't find any thumbnails beside the one we are recalling ...

    Ivan what are you after, the boxes or the complete kits? I can spare the box and kit if you wish for the 72nd scale ESCI Spitfire VB with T-L.

    A great Idea but we don't need to actualy collect all the boxes we can just print them and set up a board display.

    David was spot on, a copy or digital proof [scan or image] is more then enough, anzi ideal ... I am amazed how much there is, apart how many box top really depicted Malta ...

    I think, where possible, as a collection it would make more sense to have a collection of the actual box arts and not just a print of the colour art. IMHO collection would be more appreciated if it had to include the complete box, when this is not possible we would make a good and profesional print of the colour art.

    There is also a figure by Soldiers (a bad one ta as it is incorrect) of a Grand Master during the Great Siege of 1565............I bought it but don't have the box art for sure as the figure is in the spares box and I threw the box away a long time ago Sad

    It is a bit shallow from the figure's section as I think only the CORRECT Alferez which Ivan mentioned and this bad offering from Soldiers di Lucchetti, is Malta mentioned per se.........otherwise Hospitallers and Ottomans galore, bad and not so bad from the time of the Crusades only Sad

    Just my idea, if we have the actual boxes, it would be more interesting for the visitors. I suggest we actually put up a display with the moxes we have and have the ones we don' printed out.
