    Since you asked I'll tell you:
    My wife and kids got me a new watch, some cologne and a couple of DVDs of old movies that I had remarked I would like to have.

    But on the subject of men and their toys I don't like to get big gifts for Christmas since I prefer picking out my own. A few months before Christmas I "gifted" myself a new computer, new video card for another computer. new DVD player and HiDef LCD television for my study.
    Now I've got my eye on the Orb Audio home theatre speaker system...swweeeett :grin:

    I can relate to that. A little over 10 years ago I bought my very first own pair of pliers when I moved out from my parents. They cost around 0.50 euros per pair. This christmas Santa gave me a new pair of pliers because I finally had lost my first pair of pliers forever for I don't know what place. The new pliers cost "slightly" more than 50 cents...

    Santa gave me a Victorinox multitool, 99 euros in the local boy scout shop :p

    '99' euros Wow, that's a lot of euros, got to be about £70 sterling!
    Reminds me of the story of the beautiful young girl who had lots of admirers. When they asked her what she would like as a present she always asked for a 'Victorinox' army knife and she eventually had a drawer full of them. When asked why? she answered, "Now, I am young and beautiful with many young men, but one day I shall be old,..........
    and those Boy scouts will do anything for a Victorinox army knife!!"

    My wife bought me a book on tanks by George Forty.

    A little basic but it is up to date, which is a great help. :D


    Now for the touchy-feely bit - :wink:

    The best present was having the whole of my wife's immediate family (including spouses & children) travelling from all corners of the country to be together at her parent's house (last time ever, her parents are moving).

    Oh, and seeing my sister and my niece!

    If this is tha same plane, Barce aerodrome was covered with bits of them,
    destroyed in a LRDG raid, led by Jake Eason-Smith of David Stirlings command, 30 planes were destroyed.
    They were still there in 46.

    Yugoslav Me-108 had fixed wooden prop made by Schwartz otherwise they were identical to B-1 series. Lift-Here 1/48 set for this plane included resin prop.
