I've had these little beauties for a few weeks, and decided to get some pictures posted here on the blog. In deciding to go with 10mm for the land war portion of the Korean War, I had to be able to find some sources for vehicles. Pithead Miniatures offers a huge list of American vehicles for World War II, most are rather suited for Korea, and considering that they are the company of choice for the land war project, I ordered an M24 Chaffee and a T-34/85 with my infantry order last month. Both vehicles are very easy to assemble, as they have two tracks, a hull, and a turret. They are not bad castings, a bit of flash to clean, a few moments to glue together, and they you have it, armor for Korea. Well, of course I will need to paint them, but both vehicles will have fairly simple paint schemes and a few decals for national markings. As for cost, the Chaffee comes out to be $4.36 and the T-34/85 was $4.19. I am guessing the cost of the Chaffee is higher as it is a limited edition for Pithead.

I went through the CY6 Air War Korea scenario book tonight to determine what would be the maximum number of the aircraft needed to create each scenario. The numbers are...impressive. I do not believe I will aspire to collect them all as this is simply too many aircraft to comprehend, especially the number of B-29s one would need.
