First  Brain  I shall start on that copies soon .  I have been book dumpster diving again 😵 . The first two are by  Gabriele Esposito The War of The Pacific that was fought in South America.The second The War of the Triple Alliance. Both of these are new books publish by Winged Hussar Publishing . This is  a whole period where you could paint figures since the uniforms followed French German American from the 1860-1880 :o  He has also done several Osprey title's on this. Now for people who love the Raj The Ruling Caste by David Gilmour I think it makes for interesting reading. Ships and Seamen of the American Revolution by Jack Coggins  .This Author has done 2 other books on Civil War Equipment and painting Ships. Last United States Army Air Service Wings, Badges Uniforms Insignia 1913-1918 by Terry R Morris  So that's about it  Willie

Every Wednesday I volunteer at the friends of the Suffolk Library 😉 .There get a lot of donations and then they have once a month book sales and I have been able to pick up some good deals😊 . In fact some of them are new never been read . You ever know what you fine on Wednesday when they drop off books . Well I found this little pamlet It's call Horsemanship in pictures by Susan Harris . What I like about it is that it covers a wide range of subjects and it's drawn in black ink and with white back ground .For some of are members making moldes it might help😁 Brain I thought I might make a copie for you too show the gang.😵Wille

All hands on Deck :o Today I received a very neat book which I ordered in June. The Fighting Ships in the Royal Navy  897-1984 by  E.H.H Archibald printed in 1987 . There are a lots of books that are printed on the Royal Navy but this is outstanding in regards to the different ships in the History of the Navy. It is a Blandford series composing to volumes  wood and Iron. I know a lot os you guy and gals are not into Naval but this book covers a lot of information color and black and white views of ships along with flags and ammunition  :o It has a lot of ideas you could use to make Diorama with flats.  So take a look and let me know what you think

Hi all well I am back :o Now to come up to speed. First  Samurai Warriors by Stephen Turnbull. This was printed in 1991 the Blandford series I like book and he is a great author on the subject and this series runs from Uniforms to Aircraft. In this day and age they just fit right in both for space and budget. Second is Ceremonial Uniforms of the World by Jack Cassin-Scott & John Fabb by Arco publishing ??? printed in 1977 . I like it its a nice little book with lots of ideas for painting flats  :o you could paint Life Guards ,Palaces Guards and so on ??? Second Osprey is coming out with some neat Man at Arms Series one is on the Dutch Army in the East Indies. Willie
