Hey David, I just purchased a gold badge.
––I e-mailed “LHoffman” and the German Luftwaffe is finished and will be ‘winging’ it’s way home to me. That’s what I call a Christmas present(from me-to me)!
––We still need to do the JU-88s, ME-109s, and the Afrika Korps, Winter War, and Naval paint schemes. And whatever units come out in “HBG’s Global War Expansion Sets”.
––I don’t know if any of us will live long enough to see the completion of this ever-enlarging massive project,…but as long as HBG makes them, “WilTan” will modify anything necessary, and “LHoffman” and others will paint them. We will have FUN,….which should be the goal of ALL of us A&A gamers!

I’m excited for you. I can’t wait to see them, in person. I know it has been long wait for you, but I’m sure it was worth it.
Cool, Paul, I can’t wait to see them in person.
We order from GBS enterprises. They have mattress protectors in all sizes., and they are water proof.
Any good mattress protectors should be water proof, and I’m sure there are other companies that sell them.
We quit using mattress pads, because it takes the feel away from a new mattress, because of the padding in them.
I live in Reno, Texas which is a community just north of Paris, Texas.
Been in the bedding business for over 30 years.
Went to a few colleges, but never graduated from any.
The Lord wanted me to help in father’s business, and been doing this since ‘89.
I will definitely put you on my prayer list, and hope you can find someone who can paint your set.
Best wishes to you
Thank you, I’ve gotten better at painting over the years but having trouble finding time.
I see. Always good to hear from a fellow Texan. Yes wish I could help but I’m taking over my fathers business. He turns 80, and needs to retire.
Our whole delivery crew walked out on my Dad and I a couple weeks ago.
No one wants to work any more, and I’m delivering beds for first time in years when I should be helping at our store.
But these are the times we live in.
Nice talking with you, and wish you nothing but the best.
I paint just my own pieces, but barely have time for mine, lol, because I run a retail mattress store.
I myself, hired a painter before I ever got into painting my own pieces, his name on these forums, is Spitfire38, but he had to stop painting after college, because he landed a full time job, after school.
If you talk to the painter who paints for combat miniatures, I believe he paints, you would just have to find out if he paints a whole set or pieces and what price he charges.
He is the only one I know, right now.
One thing that has helped me, find inspiration, is I will google images of each piece I do.
I will also look others who have painted and that gives me, inspiration, as well.
Here are all my customization posts in the past.
I hope this helps you!
Here is where you can buy Global 1936 pieces.
Yes, at first I hired a painter to do my global 1940 set, but he got a new job, and started a family.
I’m currently finishing my global set.
I’m on France, now, and then Russia will be my last country to paint, then I will be painting facilities, and then I will go back to each country, and all the 1936 Global pieces that I need, then I will be painting last but not least Pro-Allies, Pro-Axis and Neutral countries.
