    The way Shapewayts packs their stuff there might only be 6 planes in that box. But I bet there are more then that.

    Solidifying plans for my first sample batch of Ground Targets...

    Base models: GHQ US90 M4A1(75) Sherman and G548 Panzer IV-H
    Paints: Vallejo 71.043 US Olive Drab (Shermans); 70.604 German Dark Yellow, 70.092 Medium Olive and 70.041 Armour Brown (Panzers for green-and-brown-over-Dunkelgelb)
    Bases, per platoon: 2 double Shermans and 1 single (command tank), 2 double Panzer (Pz platoon = 4 tanks ca. 1944; 3 if Tigers)

    Problems:
    1. Figuring out how to do good "grass/ground" cover on bases.
    2. Something unique to mark "commander" tanks that I can actually do with my poor dexterity... AAM had its Command Tanks with figure top-halves sticking out of the turrets, but that was twice the scale and even painting those would be Screaming Nightmare Time.

    DB, Tigers had 14 tanks per company - 45 per Abteilung - on paper at least.
    4 per platoon; 3 plt per company + 2 command.
    With the reduced numbers pairs of Tigers would be more appropriate to offer - then the consumer can decide whether to add more to create a company and you don't have to worry about odd ones on bases. Just a thought.

    Malachi, loving the snoopy! Clipper, amazing. Love the space station! The only thing that could make it better is if it was Babylon 5.

    Thanks; that's a ways down the road though--I'm trying to start with D-Day to Breakout, which IIRC is mostly Pz IV, some Panthers but not a lot of Tigers.

    Not many, but significant...........

    "Michael Wittmann (22 April 1914 – 8 August 1944) was a German Waffen-SS tank commander during the Second World War. He is known for his ambush of elements of the British 7th Armoured Division, during the Battle of Villers-Bocage on 13 June 1944. While in command of a Tiger I tank, Wittmann destroyed up to fourteen tanks and fifteen personnel carriers, along with two anti-tank guns, within the space of fifteen minutes."

    Also, throw in a handful of Tiger IIs!

    "It was first used in combat by 503rd Heavy Panzer Battalion following the Allied invasion of Normandy, on 11 July 1944;"
    2 Kompanies had 12 Tiger I Ausf. E, the other Kompanie had 10 Konigstiger (Porsche turret).
