Re: A few bits finished recently

Re: DUG in Markers

Abstract or not, I've been using similar markers for almost 30 years now. For 20mm scale, they are short lengths of quarter-round trim molding coated in vinyl spackling compound and paint. Here is a photo of an Italian coastal battery from our 2014 Nashcon game. The "entrenched" marker is visible on...

Re: New article: Operation Outward

The Japanese took advantage of the prevailing jet stream winds to deploy balloon weapons against the U.S. and Canada during the war as well. https://www.sil.si.edu/smithsoniancontributions/AnnalsofFlight/pdf_lo/SAOF-0009.pdf Even after almost 75 years, th...

Re: French additions

Very nice, Richard. I hadn't seen the French SdKfz.10 before, and am sorely tempted to copy your lead.

Re: Water Cooled Vickers MG in "Light" role

Found a scanned copy online of the applicable training manual (1936 edition) for the Vickers tank/AFV machine gun. Use of the bipod field mounting and the shoulder piece is covered on page 23 of the manual. These were accessories to permit the dismounting of vehicle machine guns for field use when t...

Norwegian 1940 Gun Trucks

As requested elsewhere on the forum, a couple of photos of Norwegian gun trucks from the 1940 campaign.

Re: Mexican Revolution Inventory pt3 Pershing`s Yanks

I have some wonderful photos somewhere, stills from a film reel showing how far it jumped with recoil - pretty scary :shock: Probably similar to these, taken from a period photo album. Unfortunately not my grandfather's, but of the same era. I found these online many years ago: https://i.postimg.cc...
