Dinky, Corgi and Poundland toys go to war (in 28mm)

For some upcoming games that were planned before we were "Borised" again, that I had decided were to be recce based rather than an attack/defence or delaying action, advance to contact etc I have been scouring the old boxes. All in all a massive saving on the price of plastic or resin models. The Di...

Re: First model from Spain

Carl, I got the basic trucks on either e-bay or car boot sales usually as part of a job lot. Corgi Cameo and Lledo trucks form a significant part of my "generic" transport fleets. see http://www.morvalearth.co.uk/Inch_High_Club/Morvalistan%201940/Mvstn40_02/Morvalistan%2040_2.htm http://www.morvalea...

Re: First model from Spain

Very nice, Richard. I think it would do quite nicely as an Italian caravan as well. David I used the same truck to make "Italian" troop carriers. http://www.morvalearth.co.uk/Inch_High_Club/Morvalistan%201940/Mvstn40_02/101_0651.JPG and portees for Anti-Tank guns http://www.morvalearth.co.uk/Inch_H...

Grant
Of course I'd think about it. But I'm not keen on electronic publications only - I like to see it on paper.

Re: Who's still writiing/reseraching??

Like Carl, I have not stopped researching but, also like Carl, the demise of the Journal took away the joy of seeing my work in print. No offence to the Social Media/online folk but to me it is not the same. I have my own website so I could publish there if I wanted to. I wrote what I did for the ME...

Re: saludos desde España

Welcome to club of Retired Gentlemen! I hope you have as much fun retired as I do - walking the dog, playing games (not just wargames), reading, writing, listening to music (my own choice now the kids have moved out), painting and so much more. Even a bit of gardening and volunteering. I sometimes w...

Re: Caravansary anyone?

Very nice building. The spelling I use is, like Richard, caravanserai - literally "group travellers' inn". Also seen them all over the Middle East though few are as neat as your one! It is of course a transliteration so depending upon the dialect the spelling may vary though "caravanserai" appears t...

Re: Peter Rabbit

It is based on "Cuckoo" which was captured, refitted, repainted and used by 4th Battalion Coldstream Guards in '44 to '45. So it will be used as a surprise for the Germans in a Game. https://tankandafvnews.com/2016/04/27/o ... nther-tank
