WW2 Eric Knowles Style - Gliders
An Airspeed Horsa coming in for what looks like a heavy landing - I hope he got the nose up a little!
The pace is hotting up in that plans have been finalised for me to pick up the WW2 collection of Eric Knowles. I shall be heading over into deepest Essex to Bill’s place and will then pack the car to the gunwales with painted 20mm WW2 stuff. I was swapping message with Bill earlier today and two things emerged - firstly that the collection included gliders and secondly, there is around 50Kg of UNPAINTED figures and equipment that Bill had forgotten about!
One of my contacts had enquired about gliders - along with heavy artillery - so he will be delighted when I tell him there are some. At this stage I have no clue as to what they are but am willing to bet that the Airspeed Horsa will feature.
So Wednesday 19th July is the day so expect a flurry of posts afterwards - as soon as I have recovered from shifting umpteen boxes of figures and equipment into the man cave!
