2 Captains & a Colonel coordinating the attack on St. Lo

A colonel from the 29th, a captain from the 101st and a captain from the 2nd Rangers coordinate the attack on St. Lo (July 1944).















As always, please comment. It's what keeps me going. lOL.

I really like the floorboards. How did you weather them?

I was at the beach and there was a mangled old storm fence laying on the side of the road by the trash. Much to my wife's usual discouragement, I collected the salvagable sections and loaded them into the car with the beach chairs. I knew exactly what they would be good for. So, to answer your question, the weathering is real.

Re: 2 Captains & a Colonel coordinating the attack on St. Lo

good stuff bro...
I like the floor also...looks very "war-torn" and well broke-in.

Yes, that's the Hankster. One of my favorite head sculpts of all time. Actually I think Hanke is one of the best buys of the past couple years. Great assortment of gear and uniforms and you can still buy him cheap (by 2014 standards). Thanks for liking.

Home Depot trim department. They have all kinds of molding that would make awesome 1/6 gingerbread and crown molding too.
