Amazing amount of outstanding modelling skill and hard work shown there
Is it wrong but the bit I like the most is the mobile hole in the wall :-* :-* :-*

A fitting tribute to your friend. I picked up my copy of Wargames Illustrated 55 minutes at Peking and re-read the article. Have gamed the period a few times over the years.  This period is my all-time favourite for gaming. Colourful and full of character. Best wishes for your continued project.
Best wishes,
Helen

What rules. I've got hundreds of figures and lots of terrain but never found a rules set I liked.

Not sure if you directing your question to me, nevertheless, Wargames Illustrated No 27 has the set-up and rules for 55 Minutes at Peking.

Thank you.

Amazing.  Fabled wargaming.  If I could achieve a game with a fraction of this one's accutrements, I would feel I had achieved the pinnacle of miniature success!
