    When I was in Jr college got into miniature tank battles with angriff. I did some scratch building. Anyway we would set up a couple of tables and do some terrain. I took a German RSO and scupted down the cab to look like the rso pak40 carrier. Soon just about all vehicle's knocked out. Two German players verses one american. We all are down to one vehicle each. Sherman vs rso and panzer IV. Sherman ignored rso just a transport shots the panzer IV get killed by rso. So the guy goes what shot me you have no tanks left. I say check out the rso. I had put the canvas cover and the cab roof but if you looked closely at the cab you could see the gun muzzle. My fellow German was even impressed and the American player was impressed as well, plus I made it so I could remove the cover and drop it back on with the cover off it looks just like the pictures of the rso pak40. Funny I looked on line and found a couple of rso oaks with a canvas cover. In my gaming group the guys would say I could take on the whole group single handed. I had several hundred at some point I had over a thousand. Dozens of Sherman's Stuarts, whole panther battalion 70 ,60 kung tigers american army German British Russian Italian had enough to field a large army for any of those countries. No Japanese armor at the time no one did any.

    That's kewl what armies did you play if any in particular. What manufacturer did you like to collect CnC or GHQ. I liked CnC they seemed the most accurate GHQ was a little heavy on some of their detail but they had a larger selection.
