New Strategic Map

Here is the strategic map spray mounted onto a metal signboard. It is still not crease free, so I may have to think about painting it directly onto the metal. A job for a rainy winter weekend! The real reason for posting the pictures is that if any of the markers fall off, there is a reference copy here. Future changes may need more security than being posted on an open public blog :O)

The Original Strategic Map

The strategic map that I use is Frank Chadwick’s excellent Europa Map. One can (just) see a combination of the pinnacles of 20th century technology, talc sleeves, spirit pens and Sasco wall planner labels.
The map has now been spray mounted to a metal sign board with magnetic unit and formation markers replacing the Sasco labels.
