The generosity of friends ...

When Andy arrived for last night's game he presented me with this supermarket bag. "These are for you".

Really? You're joking. Nope... they had been given to him by a friend many years ago, and had lain unused in Andy's garage, possibly for a couple of decades. He thought they might be useful for the developing German force.

The 'mystery bag'

First there were these bags.
These packets are apparently from a Chinese company: two Flak 88s ( I have none at the moment), an Sdkfz 7, and a couple of packs with Kubelwagon and motorcycle/sidecar combination.

And then there were the boxes.

A box each of Revell German WW1 infantry (superb figures) and Revell German paratroopers. The remnants of a box of Italeri German Infatry, and.. dah dahh... a Hasegawa Sdkfz 251/9 Stummel, an Esci Sdkfz 250/9 and an Sdkfz 250/3 Grief.

These will see good service in the 20mm Spearhead armies. Or, I may simply enjoy making and painting the kits and figures (mind you I am well and truly over the old school kits that present you with individual track links to glue on for the tracks - but never look a gift horse in the mouth as they say).

What an awesome score... the generosity of friends, eh!!!

Thanks Andy.
