Are you being funny? I don't understand?

I meant fine by me - you can say that

I thought you were being funny and saying, "Sending them to me is fine by me".

It's not easy making jokes online is it?   ???

Excellent review Damo!
  Forget about all of the other stuff,....all we need is the reintroduction of the 3526 Fire Engine!

Personally I think this set beats the traffic warden and portaloo, as children could relate to them, and easily recognise them, but I doubt very much that an 8/9 year old would know exactly what this machine is.

I know at least one 43 year old who wouldn't know what this machine is, or get excited by it.  Then again, I don't get much excited by any of the construction series (except the portaloo, of course).

The 7451 add-on pack would make a great addition to this set.

Having sliced with the cutter and broken up the old road surface with the pneumatic drill, you'd have the pneumatic hammer operator to tamp down the new tarmac, and still have a man left over to lean on his shovel.

@Playmobil, isn't it time these operators of heavy machinery had a hard hat with built in ear defenders? You can only get away with wearing a baseball cap on a building site for so long.

I thought this the other day when I was packing it up. Perhaps a custom can be made! :!:

I'll have to have a go at this - shouldn't be too hard (just a bit of cutting and glueing) ;D
