Below is a really nice PLASMO 72nd scale diorama.  In it he uses the AK foam product.  Since we know AK takes commercially available items and repackages them at a mark up for modeling uses, does anyone have any idea what the foam actually is and whether it is available from a more direct vendor?

YouTube contains a bunch of training films.  These are a great insight into what our grandfathers were dealing with.  They are a valuable resource to the modeler.

WWII is endlessly fascinating.  I learn something I didn’t know all the time.  The latest was Operation Mutton. HP Harrows in combat as anti-bomber aircraft.  Wild.
