Might be time to dig out the Dvd of "A Bridge Too Far." Imho it had some of the best war movie cinematography of all time, largely because they were pre-CGI. They had real C47's, Shermans, half-tracks etc. And some brilliant photography. Great score too.
Many of the Shermans lined up on the dikes were plastic shells on VW bus chassis. I wonder whatever happened to them all? If you look very very closely you can spot them off in the distances. The close in tanks of course were all real. They had moving tracks that didnt quite touch the ground.

I just remembered. I went to college in Spokane (Gonzaga U.). We used to go down to Pullman and Moscow for rifle matches. There was some little down on the way down that had a Sherman tank as a memorial. Unfortunately we never stopped to take a closer look. No idea what the name of the town was.

Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
