I have some of their stuff. The farm vehicles are good value too. TK Max sell these from time to time at good discounts.

Poly type. However I have found that soaking in hot water or the application of an heat gum makes them very malleable and easy to repose. I have also used epoxy resin to glue parts when I have performed amputations.

Thanks Casey,thought they were poly,thats a shame as would be harder to reposition,although may be adaptable with heat as you say but and I`m not a fan of epoxy,bad experiences during my OO days but its food for thought ,thanks again.
