Arab-Israeli


Target

One of the scenarios for the Check Your 6 1948 Arab-Israeli War published in Wargames Illustrated calls for a vessel, the Eqyptian Amir Faruq.  This happens to be a sloop similar in appearance to a Flower-class sloop, and so I decided to take advantage of the Topside Minis cheap prices and buy one of their Flower-class 1/1800 scale offerings.  These are two dimensional renderings on self

Growing the 1948 Arab-Israeli War Collection

1948 Arab-Israeli War

Nice, a long planned project finally coming to fruition.... I picked up some greatly reduced Raiden aircraft from Dom at Dom's Decals some time ago, for the most part planes that would be correct for use in the '48 Arab-Israeli War.  Using Check Your 6! and a '48 War article (an supplement download) that appeared in Wargames Illustrated (#310) and written by Rob Wubbenhorst, I gathered

Strange Encounter by Roy Grinnell After some great communication with Kevin Hammond of Miscellaneous Miniatures, I have shipped to him my Raiden aircraft for both the Vietnam and 1948 Arab-Israeli projects, both are for Check Your 6!  The Vietnam project is based on the Crusaders Over 'Nam scenario book, and the 1948 planes are from the Wargames Illustrated 310 article "War of Catastrophe and
