Flame of War Hohei gun machine type 92. Want to see the real one in action.

Flames of wars just started releasing Japanese troops.  The new book is called Banzai. The type 92 was a deadly HMG.  It has some flaws. It jams when the ammo is dirt.  Tends to have rounds go off that are not fully chamber.  The video above give you an idea what it would be like on the receiving end.  At the end of the video there is a 10 shot group in the target which is about 2 1/2 inches at a 100yds.  As side note my father in law serviced in the Pacific.  All he told was that it was hell going up against machine guns. But Bulldozer's worked the best against them.

Remember charging into a Type92 can make you have a very bad.   More to come.

PCS newly released Opel trucks in 15mm

Okay I know I have not been posting my work on the blog lately.  In the works are Gripping beast Saxons most are painted by need a little more painting.  It has been like hitting a writer block.
 The new Opel truck got the painting desire flowing again..   The first batch of trucks are painting.  In the que for weathering.  Before that decals have to put on.  

There are variants in the process also.  But you have to wait until later. 

Review overall I give them a report card of "A".  You will be able to make either a Opel or Mercedes L3000. The picture on the front Box shows  Ford..Nope.  That was the only big disappointment.  But the photo instructions are very vague. No place in the picture show the location to place the spare tire.   Same goes for the fuel can.  Looks like I need to do a little bit of googling.....
Oh don't forgot to leave comments please. 

Now for the pictures.

49 years today the Six-Day War started

Six-Day War, also called June War or Third Arab-Israeli War, brief war that took place June 5–10, 1967, and was the third of the Arab-Israeli wars. Israel’s decisive victory included the capture of the Sinai Peninsula, Gaza Strip, West Bank, Old City of Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights; the status of these territories subsequently became a major point of contention in the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Hard to believe October 1967 I was drafted into the U.S Army.   By March 1968 I would be in Vietnam fighting the VC in I Corp.
