Half the marked Price why not for $7.50

And on the List so at $6 bucks, Find Out more of the D-Day Resistance by SOE

Again for $10 bucks Unfortunately the That the Two shops within walking distance shut down One was just a Temporary rental Shop, But they always seem to do 50% SALES . there are still Several left in the CBD etc

But a Good reference from Amber books One In A series of  Fighting Techniques books, Fighting Ships, Napoleonic etc

More of the Osprey WWII reprints (re packaged(er Licenced)) Up to 39 of 52

Exactly the Same as the Osprey Campaign But Hard Bound, Good Basic reference as a Start The Pacific titles I might not have bought But grounding into Tarawa, Pelilu etc for Future Wargaming

And this Takes the Prize (The Cake) It was $10 in the End and wish i had of bought the Pile of them
as there is not Much that isn't in here, Divisional Write Ups, Order of Battle for certain campaigns
Aircraft types amount Built, Ships , Prime Ministers and Presidents of the 1914 -18, Employment rates, GNP

Making Carboard Walls and decking



OK, quick and Easy
Decking for Wooden panels etc (Whatever?)

Just need Scissors, Pen, kiddie type safe paper glue, and cardboard from Biscuit Cereal boxes
Make Sure to have one sheet to make planking and one as a Base to Glue to
Was going to scribe with pen (up to you) But easier to just freehand the Planks (Splinter's) etc, So they don't confrorm. if you feel like getting the ruler Out and runnning lines. if you feel that is easier and then cutting down the marked lines...

After a few goes they come out Even enough, But still rough enough


You End up with a tidy pile, with which to work with,

Then Just run the Glue down the base board (a sheet of ?10cm by 20cm), whatever size you think will do, But to Big and you run into problems with glue and mess and un correctable faults will appear

Then it is Just a matter of Gluing on the planking side by side bit by bit and pressing down with small scrap card just firmly enough now and then. Also beeter to Cut strips into short planks and do a sort of jigsaw effect
The plank effect also lifts a liitle so can be glued down or left as effect

And Dried ready for Paint weathering

So thin bits and larger bits on this test board


nice enough and rough for maybe a ACW bridge etc....  (needs paint) Highlighting?

But from an idea fro small boats etc, and for the sides of housing

A 1/72 scale (2omm) Caeser figure does the Honours of scale size
 

So a lick of paint etc, and she 'll be right mate
I will Finish them off when i have a firmer idea on a House/Shed etc but these were done about
Six months ago, probably because of a Bet, But when i Should have been doing other things.
(also Just thought of flooring in Factories, Houses et)
Cheers Karcuss
