A couple of late arrivals

The Triplane was from my mum and the Commandos from my friend Ross, thanks to you both

Usually at this time of the year I'd be preparing for games week, which is still happening I'm just woefully unprepared for it.
 Twentieth Century Wargames is moving to Australia in about three weeks and boy does the house look like it! Will try to at least finish the Hudson plus one or two other items in progress before I go, but either way will keep you posted.

Normandy at low tide

Bit of a scenic layout for you...

This is just to show how the beach obstacles actually fit in. Scaled for CD3, this strip of sand would be over a kilometre wide  

What the Germans saw...

Liebster Award

Well, though I'd better get on with this then, x3 nominations. Thank you all! Assuredly, I enjoy browsing your your work as much as you do mine...

Nominations from:

1, Ben always has something different on the go, in particular, I like a lot of his modern stuff
2, Erhntly, consistently produces models of extremely high quality and close attention to detail
3, Thanos, well. we seem to have very similar interests; and he even helped my daughter source some Greek textbooks for university

My own nominations could easily run into a page but here are x5 of my favourites:

mmm, X to the power of Y should see all of the Blogs out get a nomination at some stage:)
