Excellent - he was the man who refought the whole of the Eastern frint I believe?? He built a scaled down Stalingrad as I remember....!

Yes Steve, there are some pictures of his Stalingrad in Don Featherstone's Advanced Wargames. I also have a feeling in one of Don's books there was mention of a periscope for viewing the battlefield and I think this may have been to do with Lionel Tarr too - without having the book to hand I can't be sure. I'm thinking of posting some of the wargames gadgets that appeared over the years (remember the Timms Wargames Computer?) if there would be any interest in these.
