New products received
Yesterday, the mailman dropped off a package with 3 new books. The first one,
This is David Doyle's latest release from Squadron. M3A1 Scout Car Walk Around features some excellent photos of both early and late production Scout Cars. It'll be a useful reference for both the modeller and Scout Car owner. I contributed a couple of pictures for it.
The other two are releases from Ampersand Publishing:
The Churchill Tank is also authored by David Doyle. It covers the Churchill gun tanks and is part 1 of a series. It features wartime photos with some walkaround type shots of preserved vehicles. David also heavily contributed to the Allied-Axis issue.
Today's mail brought a nice box from Japan. In it was the brand new Tasca 1/35 M4A3(76)W Sherman.
It's a beauty of a kit. I haven't totally looked it over yet, but what I've seen looks real good. It should be fun to build.
