    Anybody know of a really cheap Douglas C-47 Skytrain/Dakota model in 1/72 scale? The cheapest I have found is $17. That is a bit more than I want to pay for something that is going to be made into battlefield scenery. :(

    My plan is to place it on a base of ground and have the plane crashed. I want to paint the plane as totally burned so there are no markings left. It can then be used as a US, UK or Soviet aircraft. That way it will be a suitable piece of scenery for all WW2 fronts in our battle games.

    Just can't can't pass up tanks that are on sale. It was $5.00 at the local shop. Then, of course, I had to get some paint for it and some more Brit infantry, etc. :D

    From a previous post:

    Here's the latest of what I've been working on. They're for WW2 miniature gaming in 1/72 scale. Small bits and fragile parts are left off to avoid breakage but they're not too bad to look at.

    BTW, the Panther is a die-cast Dragon Armor piece that I weathered, mudded, and based. The T-34/76 is an Italeri kit, the Pz IV is a Hasegawa kit, the KV-2 is a PSG (?) kit.

    Go here and then click on Jody's WW2 stuff.

    I'll have a few more in the near future. Will post them when ready. :D
