Bag the MiG 
I've had the ubiquitous family weekend, involving a lot of offspring related crisis management and damage limitiation, so wargaming pursuits have taken a bit of a backseat. However, in between the chaos, I have forged ahead with the 1/600th scale Bag the MiG project and have based up all the F80's, F84's, MiG 15's, Il-10m's and three B29's. This sounds impressive but isn't really very much, given the teeny weeny size of the things and the fact that they only need a little filing and sanding to be sorted.
I've included a photo of the original basing that I devised for MiG Alley to illustrate the thinking behind the switch to Bag the MiG. I've also assembled a base for the latter, using a plastic hex stand from Brigade Miniatures as the basis for a shedload of identical stands, if I get myself organised this week. I'd like to use Litko bases but they are out of stock at Figures In Comfort and I don't fancy ordering from the States, as it tends to attract the unwanted attention of Her Majesty's Customs and Excise.
