Hi All
I have a few months off work waiting for an op and have decided to get the modelling stuff out of the attic (yes i know i'm sad) I want to do some eastern front vehicles, crews, and infantry and support units. I have a copy of "Wenn alle bruder schweigen" so am well covered for SS Units. Can anyone recommend any books that would be good for photographic reference on non SS units?

Alfie

"The Onslaught" is a great photo reference for Russian Front pics

riff raff i do modelling as well, ive converted 2 of my shelfs into battlefields LOL

for the russian one i got a sheet of polysterene so i can make shellholes,trenches etc, covered it in dirt from the garden but sived to get all the crap out and brought myself fake snow and sprinkled it over the whole thing........it looks bloody marvellous with my tiger on it !

i really kicking myself about 10 years ago i had a copy of the book got it from my dad who used to be a book dealer signed by Herbert Meyer plus another high ranking ss office who i couldnt make out who, it was from when they came over to the UK to advertise the book in the eary 70's and Winston Churchills grandson got them deported saying we dont want their type here!!
but ive sold the book now its one thing i wished i didnt do :cry:
