What is Dass?



OK just a bit of fun. Who will be the first to tell me what the two photo's are part of. No prize but you can consider yourself the clever clog of the day. I will post the results tomorrow. I am also posting this on my other blog so bragging rights assured.


No painting done today, though I have cleaned up 42 28mm figs and finished off the clean up and primed 80 15mm figures. The aim is to get the 15mm's painted up this week and start the 28mm before getting to this point next week. I may have set the bar a little high but lets see.

  2. My first though: an old military map/document case. :)

    1. Just what I thought, although the Dass in the title made me think German rather than British.

  10. I'd say it is from a German "Klappspaten" (folding shovel)

  11. @ Smillie, it's leather rather than webbing but on the right track

    @ Happy, shame but good that you had a go.

    @ Thomas, we have a winner. Photo's of the shovel later today )I've been using it to clear snow and ice in and around the chucks shed
