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 ???

Does anyone  of are French members know what is going on with Histoire & Collections  ??? Every time I go onto there web page I get that they are off the web and reworking it :o I tried Casemate  in the states and they told me that they had changed owner ship. :o Also that some of there books they where advertising would not be sold here in the states. I was able to pick up a old book Military Bands and there Uniforms. It was printed in 1978 by Blandford Press. Some good information about bands. Willie
