I finally finished painting and applying the paper numbers for the Victory in the Pacific stats to the ships. A true labor of love. I just need to get the map printed and we will be ready to play Avalon Hill's classic game with miniatures! I still plan on basing up some 1/1250 aircraft for the Japanese and Allied land based air units. I already have some carrier aircraft ready to go. I hope you enjoy the photos. You can see my Japanese ships in earlier blog posts.

This first picture is of Panzer Lehr's engineering battalion. I decided to use a river crossing to represent the engineers. All of the miniatures are from Pico Armor/Oddzial Ozmy. I made the scratch-built ferry using some wood and Plastruct styrene sheet and angle pieces. I think it came out nice. There is a Jagdpanzer IV on the ferry.

This first unit is the 707th Tank Battalion, part of the 28th Infantry Division. This is my first American unit. It is made with Sherman tanks, a truck and a jeep from the 1/700th scale Skytrex set Vehicles on the Beachhead. The building is from Oddzial Ozmy. I have the Shermans moving cross country en echelon and some of the vehicles focused on a distant target! This unit should also include M5 light tanks, but I liked the look of the large group of Sherman tanks.
