Here are three field kitchens ready for light weathering.

A very early "Tim Hortins"? :us:


Excellent models of the field kitchens of WW1.

Looking forward to more of your modelling.

Hey, thanks for showing your field kitchens...they are really fine.
Seeing them reminded me that I still have 2 Tamiya 1:35 field kitchen kits stashed away.
They would look great around the local saloons to offer some barbeque to the patrons.

Holy cow... Nice work. 

Looks like an Army. 

Need lots of soldados for a war I suppose. 

Very nice.

:thumb:

When I saw the photo, I thought they were caissons. 

But... Mmmmm barbecue. 

I bet the Kanooks would like some ribs. 

I'd even line up.

I submitted a request to include my layout in the 2021 Hickory NNGC last week.
Two years to finish, the clock is ticking now.

I took more figures on the road with me this last week and was able to finish 31.
I know it is getting boring seeing all these figures but I need to make sure I do something as I travel.
I need to finish something every two weeks now.

One of the reasons I have pushed so hard on this project are the stories I get sent to me. 
This was posted on another site.

My grandfather and his brother were both in the Canadian Railway Corp.
My grandfather was wounded in the lower abdomen by a shell splinter...
his brother carried him back to an aid station were he was pronounced dead.
His brother insisted they keep working on him,
he was revived and patched-up enough to be sent back to a real hospital.
He ended up with intestinal gangrene but somehow managed to survive
(no antibiotics in those days) and was invalidated out and sent back to Canada.

I still remember the time I first saw the golf-ball sized divot in his abdomen,
and he told me just that he had been wounded.
A few years later he gave me the piece of shrapnel (or so he claimed it to be)....
but he never went into details about his wounding.

A second cousin researched it about ten years ago and told me then. Cheers Gene.
My reply was: Gene, Thanks for the story. I am posting a picture for you.
If you have a picture of your Grandfather and his brother I can try to get figures that look similar.
Please share any other information you might have.
