Re: Generic urban ruin area

Nice piece of work... couldn't help but try to source the parts you used... I think I saw part of the base for the M16 (sandbagged position), walls from the hanomag base and at least one of the two pieces of broken brick wall that were on the Jagdpanther base? The T34 had some handy pieces of sheet ...

Re: Black Cross Red Star book news

John you're welcome. There has been a lack of 'the other side of the hill' viewpoints for a while with the Eastern Front air war, some German pilots rack up huge kill-counts but accounts of Soviet performance, at least till Bergstrom's books (to my mind) were blighted by the need to reflect a narrat...

Re: Black Cross Red Star book news

Hi Carl How 4? I think his intention was always to do an overview of the air war on the Eastern Front, but with the depth and breadth of operations to be covered it had to be a multi-volume work.
