Nice shot of the combined lamps and brush guard.

This one has lots of boxes on the track guards, and a snorkel (which I failed to identify at the time).

I didn't see either of them. 

Back on the model, I like the pots and pans.  The suitcases seem a bit oversized, but are in scale with 28mm figures.  Maybe just one suitcase, however.

I have to admit if I was a 28mm figure, I would pay extra for porterage.


And a Perry Miniatures Eighth Army figure.

That suitcase sure isn't going to fit in the overhead or under seat racks on the plane . Knowing my luck the airline would probably loose it anyway  ;D

You might fit the 'plane in the suitcase.

Okay, since we're on the subject of the suitcases, weren't they more squared-off in that period?  They weren't made of plastic, so curved edges seem wrong - at least for such a large one.  Reinforced square corners seem more appropriate. Just wondering.

My mum has some old , old suitcases ( her Grand mothers's ) , some are leather with square brass corner fittings and locks  , some more like a cover of a hardcover book , with wood trim around the edges , and another that looks like it would mush all up if you got it wet , some kind of paste board covered in patterned  paper . Might be a class thing , leather for the gentry , paste board for the lower classes?  She's got a dozen or so Steamer Trunks with the same kind of variations , again maybe a class thing .

True, most film, television and preserved railways have the corner reinforced type suitcases.

Saying that I had a very old resin clam shell case (with split hinges which horrified my hosts who thought my case had broken), it might have been post war.

I should have photographed them when I was clearing out my parents house. One of many regrets.

Halliburton had aluminium cases for personal use in 1938.

There was a cost element in material, the cardboard ones being cheapest.

The things we end up discussing...

I must try and make some suitcases for my T-34s.

Thanks.

I have finished the hand rails on the left side (and added two on the other side).

Having broken my 0.7mm drill bit, so no hand rail updates for a while, I present two flame fougasse markers for Operation Sea Lion.



They do not accurately represent what one would look like.



Rubicon fuel drum cut diagonally and glued to a Renedra base.

The large numbers are identifiers.
