I didn't know there was downloadable wallpaper available online ? Where's that ? Maybe that could make an interesting item on Armorama... wallpaper, posters & floortiles collection for downloading !

I too am scratch building a building for my sniper. I downloaded a picture of an available kit and tried to do something similar. I hope to have some pictures of it soon to put up. I also found my wood and drywall compound at work for no cost. Actually, I worked on it for about 5 hours at work. Keith, can I say that I my cost is negative so far since I was getting paid to build it? Just a thought...........

FAUST, I love that link for wall paper because the coloring of the paper is just right for WW2 dios. I get all my wallpaper from this site. Glad to see that others like it too.

Hi Matrix,
Darn, that's a good site! I love the things like "German Wounded Labels". Something most peopledo not know (or plainly ignore) is that every wounded, as soon as he has seen a doctor got a label attached, which he had to carry vissible to everyone.

(:-) - All I want for Christmas is a Good Digital Camera. I've got so much done and would like to share and get feedback but I have no easy way to do it. Oh well quit my bi&%hing and keep building.

Anyway - Looks very good. Very similar technique to the way I am building my building. Bummer on my part cuz I have spent more than you did (

Looking forward to seeing the end result!
