not 'HMS POLISHE' but 'HMS ILTIS' which was there probably in 1900/1901

¿Are you aware it’s bad luck to re-name a ship?

thanks Richard! are you able to insert backdated replies  :D I really didnt see your question...you know I always reply

and the answer is YES!!
but its going to take a lot of hunting to do those british, americans, french, Italian, Austrian even western-trained chinese and Indian troops....some countries sent both their Marine/sailors and ground troops and then there are summer and winter colors....luckily I'm not into ships  :D

Hi Cheng

give us a complete, customized scene of the five-country siege of Beijing and the embattled foreign embassy district.

Plus Boxer snipers.  A lot of Boxer snipers.

And the dowager empress and her entourage fleeing to Xian.

We're waiting.

I think we have the correct head for empress dowager already...maybe its easier if i make her fleeing without her 'hexagonal' hat  :D

hey Tim....did she have bound feet?!  :P ...she'll have to be 'running' in her sedan chair....then I wont have the problem of balancing her on her bound playmo-feet...quite easy to make(I'm speaking of only her feet)   ;D
