In the mean time work has started on a couple of things . Having a game coming up at Partizan has pushed me to get on with the Military Railway. I had picked up a toy train set by "Teemsterz" which was labelled as 1/55th scale - they are still available on Amazon and e-bay for a few more.. I found it in the local post office just before Xmas it cost £3.50 - so I bought two sets. I have butchered one carriage to make a flat bed one , and added some plasticard to armour the loco part. The rails and sleepers are proper model railway On30 track i sourced form my previous Cowboy project which looks the part. While the model does not sit on the rail rather over it I think it will work ok. If not i will shorten the axles if need be.

|The original inspiration for it - need to make some construction crews too|
Next up is some progress on the upcoming 10mm ACW group project with my first Union troops painted. There are a few of us painting units for a first game hopefully in June/July.
and the next lot started
A few new purchases from the "didn't go to Salute" spending..
Lets see where this ends up ...
And finally , as part of the tidy up work going on I found my sets of Eagle and Dixie cards by Colombia Games, so decided to get Deepcut Studios make me a bespoke playing mat in mousemat material . Its 22x34 inches and I am very pleased with the result
So there you go - its been busy! If you are at Partizan , pop by and say hello..
