Waking the Bear

Post by Old John » Fri Dec 10, 2021 4:47 pm

just received the above book from Helion, looks extremely useful, one suggestion there got me thinking, Russians versus Chinese, something i'd never thought of!!, Great illustrations of figures for many GNW armies and very good reading lists, only criticism i have is the picture on Contents page partly showing a Swedish Drum carriage, wish it had been shown in full, just wondering if anyone out there has a full colour picture of it so i can convert my spare unpainted/unbuilt Minifigs drum carriage, any help much appreciated, as only picture i can find is in Karoliner by Aberg & Goransson , tiny pic on page 184

On the lower right of your pictures you find a 'SHARE'-Button in which you can copy the BBCode (and the size of the picture)
Which will look like this -> Your first picture
