Bag The MiG 
I won another Ebay bid on some Oddzial Osmy 1/600th scale Soviet trucks and AAA artillery a while back and they arrived a couple of days ago. The truck models are superb, full of detail despite the tiny size and clearly recognisable as Studebakers. I particularly like the AAA castings which feature both towed and deployed versions of the M1939 37mm guns. I really think that the quality of the O8 sculpting rivals anything you'd find in 6mm or even 10mm. Amazing!
These will be great as North Korean or Chinese ground targets for my UN forces. I've been playing around with some basing options and have decided to go for 30mm mdf hexes from Minibits, which will work very well for Bag The MiG but also be perfectly suitable for MiG Alley or even CY6: Jet Age. I'm also going to use 30mm hexes for the AirWar:C21 basing, using 40mm panel pins as flight stands and mini-magnets to attach the aircraft, so I'll probably have to order some more?
