I'm making excellent progress on my Arnhem build, I reckon I'm over 80% there. As today is the 75th anniversary of the start of Operation Market Garden I thought I'd post an update.
For those of you going to Fiasco at the Royal Armouries in Leeds on the 27th October pop over, say hello and have a go on the model in a participation game I'll be running.

Sheesh! Make that top one B&W and it could be an aerial reconnaissance photo! Awesome table!

Thanks guys!

Tommy20 as soon as I finish the model I intend to photograph and then de-colourise so I can put my model side by side with about 5 or 6 aerial photographs taken on the day. That top view was very much guided by the aerial picture taken on the morning of the 17th Sept pre landings. The configuration of my workspace means that's my view as I work on the model.

I know Arnhem well, quite impressed how you caught the feel of the place.

Gorgeous !!

I couldn't find the scale you are using on your blog.

BattlerBritain18 Sep 2019 12:04 a.m. PST

I'm in Arnhem now! Looks great!!! 🙂

Thanks guys!!!!

Chicklewis – the buildings and ground scale are 1:1000. The buildings are by brigade models, with the odd scratch built add in. I intend to use 6mm figures to refight the various games.

BattlerBritain you lucky man! How are the 75th anniversary commemorations?

I'm absolutely flabbergasted -well done, Sir. Well done!

75th Anniversary going well. Paras of all nations here. Saw 4 Hercs do drops yesterday.

Lots of Dutch school kids taking part in events, which is great to see.

Met Kate Torsts daughter at her house today, which was special. On way to cemetery now.
