  1. Just cut a rough piece big enough and fold it inside so the liner clamps it in place. You can add a band cut from a truck inner tube. These things were often made in the field from old sandbags and won't be a perfect fit compared to factory-made covers. No need to overthink it
  2. Note it's 1/25 scale, bigger than the usual 1/35.
  3. Very interesting, it's still hard to imagine just how huge this thing is. Thanks for posting!
  4. I think both are Dutch, 'SW' = Schuberth.
  5. As Roy Urquhart in 'A Bridge too Far' (1977):
  6. This particular C-47 was on static display for years next to the Victory Memorial Museum at Arlon in the Belgian Ardennes, before it moved to Best and already was in a poor shape then.

  7. I wonder what the story is with the Madsen M50 SMG's?

  10. Another BoB veteran, Geoffrey Wellum, unfortunately passed away in 2018. He was known for his published memoirs 'First Light'. On these a movie with the same name was based, starring Sam Heughan (known from the TV show 'Outlander'), I highly recommend watching it if you have a chance.
  11. I think it's good, mix of brass and pot metal for the metal parts so I would say mid-war?
  12. And if you're looking for the correct fender blackout light bracket for a GTB you'll have to fight the early MB guys for it
  13. Maybe you can make out more of the marking with the camcorder nightvision trick? Or with a smartphone cam with colours reversed?
  14. The armored car, staff car and PAK are made by Lineol, I think the field bakery could be Hausser. Very nice and desirable toys!
