I've finally tracked down some Tac markings for my WWII NW Europe motor battalion, the usual British geometric signs, but in green. I can find thousands of variations for the two German 'Elefant' battalions, (the tank sort, not the Hannibal type...); but do you think that anyone makes any for a fairly common British unit? Not in 15mm or 20mm....

Of course the answer is PENDRAKEN! I found some in their shop under Scale Scenics Decals, nominally for 10mm, but as I want them for carriers etc that isn't an issue. Thanks Leon.

Yep, it's amazing how hard it is to find decals for some units. I have been focusing on 51st HD, US 2nd Armoured and Wehrmacht 2nd Panzer, and finding decals for the armour and their support units isn't too bad, but when it comes to infantry divisions..

Has anyone else used the "standard" Gorilla Glue and found it....well.....frothy? (Their superglue seems to be "normal", though.)

It's an expanding polyurethane glue, like Crocodile glue (which i prefer). It's great for gluing Polystyrene or XPS foam together for scenery as it can be cut with a hot wire too.

It needs clamping together otherwise the foaming action tends to push things apart.

That probably means that you can shave with it as well :)

Only if you're quick, otherwise the razor sticks.
