What did Santa or his Elves leave under the tree for you ?

I got that book about Jim Atwood which was the only hobby related thing I received. Book report to follow.

Also a nice bottle of 2015 Gigondas, which is a reasonably heavy red from the lower Rhone. It is often called a close cousin of Chateauneuf du Pape. Wine report to follow.

Also the first three volumes of The Accursed Kings. It is a seven volume series of historical fiction written by Maurice Druon. Its first volume starts with the suppression of the Templars by Philippe IV of France.

A subscription to Model Railroader

And you got ?

Merry Christmas,
Dave grin

Not militaria, but I got the complete collection of Babylon 5. That would be the series 5 seasons, all the movies, and a spin off series called "Crusade". I had been looking for this for some time.

Merry Christmas

Ed,

HO Gauge. 3-rail Marklin. Got my first set Xmas 1949. I still have most of it and it still works. I added to substantially in the 70's and 80's when I lived in Europe.

It's been put up and taken down many times. Right now it is resting in the attic ..... but ....

Those are nice HO Gauge trains.
Mine are almost all Lionel O Gauge Post war, steam and freight, with some passenger, and of coarse all the Military stuff.
Have a small 5x20 layout. Keeps me with something to do.

I also received the Atwood book. It's really pretty interesting so far.
