The ongoing adventures of a boy who never grew out of making and playing with plastic model kits (and even some metal ones too). Also a wargamer in search of the perfect set of wargaming rules for WWII Land and 20th Century Naval campaigns.

October Project: Day 25 "Basing (I) - PVA and Sand"

Note: The sand has "chunky" bits in it, possibly on the large side as I had previously been working in 25/28mm.
