As the lad's have said Seamus the models look superb, I hope you have a lifetime of enjoyment with them. As for the flag, I could visualize you at the head of a Panzer division. I read a good book last year about a lad from Alsace who had a French mother and German father. He fought for the Father land in the second world war, I think it was called the unknown soldier. It's well worth a read if you haven't read it already.

thanks for the kind comments lads! now to a few answers...Westy, i captured the flag from a stall at the curragh vintage military display a few years back (he put up one hell of a fight, but i talked him to submissioin and got it fot 20 euros!)


Pat, monthly party meetings will resume in the fine weather in the beer hall beside the Bunker (my railway and doss room!) all welcome!

Seamus they were involved in the great war and WW11 last century. This time they have achieved domination over the rest of Europe without firing a shot. Lovely models I am a huge military history fan myself. If you have any more pics of models start a thread I would love to see them, as I am sure others would too. The book is a good read the guys name is Guy Sajer. It also shows that the majority of the military soldiers hated the SS.

The maroon livery really looked the business on them when new, as did the maroon and blue livery. Personally, I thought the later liveries - especially the grey and light blue on carriages - looked a bit watery.....


I'd have to agree JHB. The full set with a maroon liveried Hunslet at each end looked the biz! The later liveries didn't have the same impact.
