I'll need a good few sessions to finish off all the tricky bits, but I'm hoping to be finished by the weekend.
Now, the mystery project. The latest comments came to the conclusion that it was Korea, though late. Given that the figures are, indeed, from Imex's Korean War range, this is entirely understandable. But, I can now announce .... ta da da da ... that it is The Bay of Pigs !!!
The Imex figures are very nice, crisply moulded in a pretty inflexible plastic, and, I am very pleased to say, look absolutely fine next to the 1:87 M41. Crucially, I think they will look fine, given a paint job, as both sides in that short, but very vicious encounter. As for the tank, the Cubans, that is the invading Cubans, had five M41s, and they more than held their own against the Cuban, that is Fidelista Cuban, T34/85s.
Talking of Cuba, the 1898 game has still to be played - work, and other mundane matters have put it back again. But, it will happen.
