Re: Help with Roco Minitanks spares

The Hummers would fit nicely with the boys if I cannot use them. Do you still have the jeeps from last time? The boys are looking for jeeps to paint up as Jurassic Park grey/red ones. When they play their own games dinosaurs, Martians and humans battle it out on the carpet. their "rules" are quite s...

Re: Heavily armed Universal carrier

It could well be 84 - your eyes are much better than mine!

I did think it was in Italy. The .50cal and .30cal were often acquired by Motor battalion in armoured divisions from the armoured regiments not just from dead Shermans. but they would not be 64 or 84!

Thanks

Re: Strelets Set 139 Japanese Type 96 with Crew

I think it is based on the one in Beijing though how common or not this particular mounting was I don't know.

Re: Markers and blinds

I have seen, but not used, blind markers made from a circular base with a grey figure glued to it. Each "grey" had an identity number on the base and this recorded on a sheet indicated what unit, sub-unit or whatever. I suppose that "ghost" vehicles, guns etc could be used as well. Though with WW2 g...

Re: Anyone else having difficulty with Paypal?

I got a message yesterday that Paypal had "validated" my purchase. I forwarded it to Blacktree just in case Paypal did not.

Re: Strelets Set 139 Japanese Type 96 with Crew

Any AA/ATk gun is a useful addition to my Japanese and with a bit of work maybe a couple of other armies. The side view of the crew looks OK to me.

Re: German hydrofoil tank transporter!

I doubt that any would have been available in time for Seelowe in 1940, It would take months (years?) from specification to in-service even in wartime. The solution is, I think, a typical German over-engineering solution to a problem. After all they could not built proper landing craft in time never...
