What are you reading

I have down loaded many of Frenchies Tank photo’s from the Ukrainian war and it has gotten to the point I need a guide to know which tank is which in the mix of variants.

I have to admit as well. That at the moment. Nothing, though I had been going back and forth between Jesse Stone series and Harold Coyle/ Tom Clancy, or Dale Brown. But since I’ve begun to work on the final Three 2022 models in order to finish them up I’ve put my reading aside until that’s done. I have roughly two weeks to finish the P-61 & the M-60A3 models. since the JU-87 is for the most part finished. Except for some additional decals I plan on finishing over the weekend.

No, Piet, that’s correct.
Harburg is a suburb of Hamburg and the company was called Vidal & Sohn Tempo Werk GmbH in Hamburg-Harburg
Vidal & Sohn Tempo-Werk – Wikipedia

Btw. I plan to build the MiniArt Tempo A400 this year … :slightly_smiling_face:

Thanks Thorsten for the clarification :+1:
When i looked up Harburg it came up a municipality in Bavaria , And it is a long way from Hamburg… thats why i thought it was a typo.

Reading a book called Flyboys about the 8 airmen imprisoned on Chichi Jima just north of Iwo Jima. I knew nothing about the story but found it at a local second hand book store for $3

Really riveting story. Absolutely gut wrenching the description of evil on all sides of the pacific war at times
