Gawd Strewth !! I'm knackered ! I've managed to get one whole weekend off in the time since Salute in April . Off to Triples in Sheffield this weekend, then Partizan at Newark the weekend following. In the meantiime I've an order from the USA coming in- supposed to get here on Friday probably at the same time as I'm loading the Van for Triples so much carnage is likely to ensue. However you know what they say "If you can't take a joke you shouldn't have joined" so it'll be a case of shut up and soldier and get the job done. The Jacdaw Napoleonic Swedes progress, albeit more slowly than I'd like given all the other stuff to do , so given a little time I'll have the production moulds for the first 4 packs early in June. Then afrer a bit of fiddling about another 3 packs before the end of June or thereabouts. I hope to have a few painted examples before that. David has significantly upgraded the first test shots we showed earlier on the blog. Howevermy painting is currently dominated by 28mm ECW as I need a few extra items for the Durham show game on June 9th. This should be a scenario based very vaugley on the battle of Cropredy Bridge- or as one contempoary put it "A bridge called Crapridden" whichv phrase alone made me want to do a game of that battle! . Other news- I'll be adding another modern aircraft to the range- a Cessna Birddog much used in Vietnam. This shoud be out around about the same time as the first of the abovementione Swedes. After that there will be a couple more WW2 aircraft. A Hawker Tempest and a Beafighter.. There is a good bit of 15mm stuff in the pipeline both homegrown and stuff from Bluemoon in the USA.more news on that when its fit to print.
