Wow!  Nice setup!  I count 8 air units in Japan.  The cardboard stuff is ugly, it took me a while to figure out that one was an anchor.  Thanks for the pictures Wild Bill.

Wild Bill,

Where do you get your plastic bins for the units? They look pretty useful. Thanks for the pics!

Yea I'm not crazy about the card board. I will probably borrow a few things from my AA50 game. I used a few plastic AA guns in the picture, instead of the card board ones that came with it.  I thought about gluing the card board IC's to the top of a real IC. If you line it up with one of the ribs on top at an angle it looks ok, and you can still tell by the # (3 or 10) what size it is.

On the plastic bins.
I went to Meijer (department store) found them it the sporting goods by the tackle boxes.

Yeah, the cardboard pieces don't really tickle my fancy... I think I'll use two plastic IC's for major complex's and only one for the minor complex's. There seems to be plenty of room on the board for that system.

Thank you for the pictures!! I can't wait to get my copy Cheesy

Those plastic holders do look nice. The one from AA50 had the disadvantage of not separating the units properly (when you carry the box around, all the units would mix up!)

Couple things I noticed with the set up.

How many empty air strips the US has that are at Japans disposal. You have Guam, Midway, and Wake all start undefended. Also that the Philippines has no AB or NB.

Then Japan basically gets a free port at Kwangtung. Malaya comes with a port, and the UK will most likely be forced to back down if Japan heads that way early.

Ceylon (island off Indian coast) could be a good place for an AB to help protect the UK fleet in sz 39.

I also used all the Japanese tac bmrs that came with it, and some are chipped.

Anzac looks quite weak to be honest :O

And I just realized that we won't be getting any additional tac bombers with AA Europe... Japan isn't in the game!!! Would love to get more game, but money is an issue -.-
Oh well, gray/red chips is the way to go Tongue

I see you broke out the plastic AAGuns. If I wanted cardboard chits, I'd play Panzer Leader.
