Re: From Solebay to the Texel

Ah. Ok. I first thought that would be a Typo.

My "largest" metal Vessels I ever had have been from Skytrex 1/600th Scale. Here -> https://www.skytrex.com/61-triton-1600th-scale-ships. Quite nice models of Spanish and English Warships

Book Clear Out 2020

Gentlemen, After a pretty hard time for me I finally like to start again with doing Wargames. As I started 1988 with collecting various books until 2015 I gathered quite a lot of them.
