It would be a pleasure. But we have to talk about the modalities. I have to prepare a general base to put in the road parts. So I need yours before or you have to give an exact description to prepare a free space. But anyway - it would be great to have this part and the period you are talking about is very interesting. Thank you in advance!!

Meanwhile: pictures! pictures! pictures! :mrgreen:

Pretty cool, Peter. Can you tell me which unit this firefly belongs to? Only personal interest...

To the generell situation. After Eric-Jans Arnhem Zoo dio arrived. I have more than 50% at home.

Andrea, Dalibor and Eugenij are going to sent their part, like Peter.

Now I need to know if Paul and Markus will participate. They have not finally said something. If you want to make a surprise, please PM me. I need to know because I have to add the parts in the correct historic row.

And it would be good to know when you, Mickey, plan to send me you part. The base is fantastic loke the figures so I have to make plans how to add it in the row.

Please tell me something so that I can start building the final presentation. And if there is still somebody who has an idea... it is not to late, if you hurry up. ;-)

My fault, I meant 'Tommies', whereas 'kiwi' was the nickname for the troops of other commonwealth countries... or that's what they told me at least :mrgreen:
