I know Masterpiece Models makes a Pacific Stronghold Diorama Base, due to time constrants I can't get one in time, does anyone else make a beach time base large enough for a Stuart sized vehicle?

I think. They make very nice coconut logs and wall sections. I think the base has a coconut mg bunker on it IIRC

Hi folks,

Sorry to hijack the thread, but...

I've heard the name Farina Enterprises bandied around a fair bit and I've even seen a few photos of the products on the net (they look really nice).

Unfortunately I've never seen a website or catalogue of their products, or even a store that sells them - Can anyone help?

I've heard that there are paper catalogues of Farina Enterprises products out there and I'd love to get a hold of one!

Thanks,

Alex

but if you look in the back of FineScale Modeler there is usually an ad there. I'd look for you but I don't have any FSM's at work. I've purchased all my items from him at shows in the NorthEast. I've never mail ordered. I will say his products are some of the nicest most unique dio pieces out there. Good luck in your search. I'll see if I can find any info at home

Alex, sorry his address is the best I can do Farina Enterprises, PO Box 101, Arlington, Ma 02476 USA, his first name is Joseph/Joe if that will help with a search
Scott, the Pacific base I was thinking of is actually a set of two well cast Hydrocal "plugs" about 5" x 4" each. Each looks like a sandy fought over battle site, very well done and great detail even in Hydrocal. You would have to "plug" these into a larger base to get the room for your M2 to sit on it. Basically these are 3-4 figure vignette bases, anyway the number is FEA37 Pacific Theatre Vignettes.
Hope this helps each of you and sorry I don't have more precise info
Regards bobC
ps didn't Verlinden do a Pacific base in resin pretty recently?

Hi Bob,

Thanks a lot for the info - Maybe I'll drop him an email as per Brian's message below and see what comes of it.

Failing that I'll write him a letter!

Cheers,

Alex
