1/72 Scale WW2 History Book - When The Time Comes by Mark Thomas




Mark Thomas, a veteran 20mm gamer and modeler from Oregon (US) whom I met over the internet about 10 years ago now, told me some time back that he was working on a history book illustrating scenes and information related to some of the most important battles of WW2 using 1/72 scale models, figures and scenery.

Mark's book is now finished and he's informed me that he'll be making it available to interested parties on a CD-Rom for USD 9.95 + postage which can be purchased directly by contacting him on the following email : cbeta@q.com

You can read some sample excerpts and see some sample pictures his book  as posted by another veteran 1/72 scale gamer and modeler, David Reasoner, on the Command Decision Test of Battle Forum on the following links:


So, good luck with the book Mark and hopefully if this one is a success for you, we can look forward to seeing a second publication from you next year maybe ?

WW2 British Staff Car



It's not exactly Monty's Humber but I like the look of it to ferry some Brtish top brass around the wargame table.

The car's a 1/76 Oxford die-cast ready-painted model of some British car from the 30s or 40s, but the make and name of the particular car that its supposed to be escape me right now (I threw the box out after I bought it) so if someone in the know could please tell me what car it is I'd appreciate it.
