Thanks. Haven't added the detail parts to the loco yet, as you can see.

The armored cars are by Liliput/Bachmann (as is the Br. 52). They're sold as 2 two-car sets to make up a four car train. I have what's called the "scout" set... I think.


Short vid about the prototype...

I'd read recon aircraft played a part in the forthcoming battle, but I couldn't see an airstrip on the mesa. I bit of research and I came up with this.

The Fieseler Fi 156 Storch ([ʃtɔrç], "stork") was a small German liaison aircraft built by Fieseler before and during World War II. It was notable for its excellent STOL performance and low stall speed of 50 km/h (31 mph).

It could land/takeoff in only 100'.

Picked up this DR Marklin set for a "stole it" price... or so I thought. It was advertised as new, and looking at the wheels it appears to have never been run. It is old though - pieces of the gray plastic packaging break off if you look at them.

It's 3 rail, so I guess I have some conversion to do.

AC/DC conversion will wait until retirement. 558 days to go.

Got a couple more cars with loads from the same eBay seller as the car in post #584 above. He does a nice job customizing and painting these cars.

I'll dismount the vehicle from this one and add another I have on hand. It just doesn't look right to have troops driving/riding in a vehicle that's on a flatcar.
