    That's t he most challenging thing about the ICM figures. They come with lots of lovely equipment but you have to work out how to attach it to the figure in a realistic manner. I found that tough in 1/35. But keep going, this will be very nice when done. And enjoy the US.

    Yes the attachments aren't always the easiest but so much more realistic than cast on bits especially if your representing movement. Have a good trip.

    I think young William Yankee is ready for priming at last.

    Indeed they can be challenging.
    The French infantry set comes with loads of extras, but attaching accoutrements is like a Mensa engineering exam.

    The good thing about a long-haul flight is that you can have more than one beer at lunchtime, sit there for an hour feeling royally merry at 10 000 metres up, and be sober by the time you collect the hire car.

    Sounds like you're having fun already, remember though they drive on the wrong side of the road over there!

    Battlefield souvenirs.
    As we - North Carolinian guide and myself - explore Gettysburg, I am collecting leaves from trees at significant locations.
    This oak leaf came from near where Gen. John Reynolds was shot on 1 July.
    It and the rest will be pressed in my copy of Stephen Sears' "Gettysburg".

    Welcome to the US! I hope you have a great time. Too bad you're not closer or we'd have a hike and the shoot some machine guns while the ribs are smoking. Enjoy your Gettysburg experience.

    It's a trip of a lifetime. I'm thoroughly enjoying Gettysburg and looking forward to Antietam this week too.

    Lol. No black powder. I'm really glad you're enjoying your visit.

    I just waddled out of the Appalachian Brewing Co. Bar & Grill again, doing my best NOT to look drunk.
    Beers there are DAMNED good.

    History, good food and good beer, all that's missing is a figure to paint.
