I was cleaning and reorganizing the command bunker the past two weekends because things had gotten a bit out of control. I found that even walking around the gaming table was hazardous to my health, and that a good purge/spring cleaning was in order. I am not completely finished, but I have made yeoman's progress. In the conduct of cleaning out old stuff for reorganization/repurposing/recycling, I came across a number of pretty neat things I had forgotten about or hadn't been able to find for years. The easiest find was an old Pegasus bridge that I had purchased a number of years ago, placed on a shelf and immediately forgot about. All the parts are there, so it seems a new SWORD Beach scenario is in the works. Mme Gondrée
would be happy.
|When/where did I get this?|
|Not an overly complex kit, which is to my liking!|
|Almost like Christmas! I hope I have some battleship gray paint . . .|
|What the heck was in this box? Could it be . . . a long lost LST?|
|Even better it was two of them!|
|I am somewhat surprised no one else picked up the molds for these.|
|This should be a nice transport for the 13/18th Hussars, at least the ones that aren't DD tanks.|
While getting new, shiny stuff is always fun, finding old, used to be shiny stuff is pretty good too. Especially if you find it in the process of cleaning up the gaming area. The area is no longer rough terrain, so that is a clear benefit to all players. What else is out there? Stay tuned.
