Above and below: XXX Corps included a lot of exciting 'bolt-on goodies' in the shape of specialist armour. The Croc is the Airfix kit with a scratchbuilt (not by me) trailer. The AVRE is my old Matchbox kit.
Nijmegen before the game. Peaceful, isn't it?
A raggedy-arsed collection of Germans deploy to meet XXX Corps.
20mm Brits leaping out of 6mm gliders. It must have been pretty cramped in there...
More Paras inbound near Arnhem.
What the RAF recce didn't see. SS KG Hohenstaufen.
Elements of 82 Abn Div on the outskirts of Nijmegen.
More transports inbound!
Attack of the Giant Hands!
US Paras - 'somewhere in Holland...'
The Wg Cdr's 'Big Wing' of 1/300 Dakotas.
XXX Corps on the move.
Some of the players: Adam, Jerry, Wg Cdr Luddite, Tim.
