Memory Lane - ESCI 1/72 Dioramas
Posted by dogzilla17 on Tuesday, April 30, 2013 3:35 PM

I remember getting either  the Tobruk of Alamein diorama @ a hobby shop in the Poconoes back in the mid 70's - I seem to recall having a Panzer IV included - Please share any experiences - (at risk of betryaing your age ;)

Regards

The first one I got was the Isandlwana set in the late '80s at a hobby shop/pet store (really) in Melbourne, FL. I then got the Jena set at a toy convention in Ft. Lauderdale and ordered the Hamburger Hill set in the mail. Would have loved to have got the Foreign Legion set!

Stumbled on this - finally pulled out my Hamburger Hill set a few weeks ago and began work.

Ah yes, Esci that which got me started in the braille scale madness. I still have the "Don The Long Retreat" . picked it up at a real jem of a mom and pop hobby shop that was owned by a quaint old married couple called Harold's Place in Lynn Mass. some 20-25yrs. ago. Picked up a lot braille stuff there including diorama kits from Nitto and Fujimi. Miss that place a lot.

Fujimi! I remember buying the German infantry with gasmasks set and having my jaw drop when I found out I had to assemble 1/76 scale figures. But that artwork was awesome!
