Re: Soviet anti-mine doctrine

Tomm, Its one to ask the likes of David Glantz and his researchers who have delved a lot into Russian military archives. There may be a university email or contact point?

Re: Javis hedges

Tomm, excellent question you posed; and a very informative photo review you provided in response to your own question! Excellently helpful to rest of us. On tarting up your basic hedge (after your scissor work gave it a more varied range of height) you could add colour in two ways: 1. dry brush on a...
