Absolutely splendid Old Boy!  I know what you mean about the lack of Japanese options.  Very much looking forward to how this develops
"...and as always, we are dealing with strange forces far beyond our comprehension...."

All limitations are self imposed.  Work hard and dream big.

Thanks fellas for all the nice comments. James here is a pic of the box the track came in. I got it off of eBay, not cheap but I don't need a lot of it.


I have made some progress painting the Anti-Bandit Company but not enough to put up yet. Instead here are some pictures of how I plan 191?-192? Mantetsu boards to look. I think we can see why the Japanese were eager to snatch the region up.






Got to kick at the darkness till it bleeds daylight.

Looking good. I like the water tower.  Is that a bendy straw as the pipe?

A problem I too have bumped up against.

Very eager to see what sort of solutions you've come up with, Lon.

Thanks again fellas. Trev, yes the pipe is a bendy straw. The tank is a small can and the structure is scratch built from balsa. Oh yeah, the ladder is cut "granny grate" for embroidery.

Very enterprising.  I have a fondness for scratch built stuff.  Kits and 3d printing can look better but don't always and I feel there is art and love in scratch building.  :D

I recognize a lot of copplestone and pulp Chinamen, but where are those monks from? Same with the red spear society spearmen with the exceptionally long spears?

Warlord Fish,
The monks are Dixon. I am not sure what make the spearmen are as I got them off eBay. I suspect Foundry. I equiped them with steel spears. They drew blood while painting too  lol

A map dump today of maps from a Library of Congress site on Japanese maps in Southern Manchuria. They are the best resolution that I could get. The city maps were cropped from Mantetsu pamphlets.


A 1928 regional map.


An undated map of Dairen from a Mantetsu pamphlet


A 1930 map of Mukden from a Mantetsu pamphlet


A 1926 map of Harbin from a Mantetsu pamphlet


A map of Manchoukou and the Mantetsu rail lines from a 1935 Mantetsu investment pamplet
