Making the Computer Room

To make the computer room I scoured the Internet to find photos of electronic equipment.

I downloaded some computer photos and printed them out.  Cut them to shape and used white glue to glue them side by side on a piece of foamcore board.

The wall paper was downloaded and printed then glued onto cardboard, along with the electronic modules.

The whole thing is taped or glued or clipped onto a cardboard presentation board and a couple empty boxes so it will stand up and the floor will look nice.

Each of the walls are at least 14 inches high to give some space above GI Joes head and Robby too.  Total cost of the "set" was probably $2, and I think it worked out pretty well.  It's going into storage and will be re-used for other projects.

Computer Gear

The computer room is a crowded and busy place on board ship.

Then you add a crewmember as large as Robby its even more crowded.

The Chief keeps his men and machines busy.

The latest and most up to date computer gear is in this room.

It requires skilled operators.

GI Joe and Robby the Robot

Robby shows his shipmates some new calculations.

Chief, I think this robot is OK.

Robby answers some questions posed by his shipmates.

 GI Joe and the Chief confer with Robby.

The computer room won't be the same.

GI Joe Computer Processing

The men begin the data processing.

Not every assignment involves immediate physical danger.

But this is the Navy and there is always an element of danger involved.

The computer is processing the data.

Chief I think this is the answer you have been looking for.

Red Skull and the JagdMaus

The mighty JagdMaus, the only one of it's kind, fires shell after shell to keep the enemy at bay.

The Red Skull!

And his cabal of super scientists!

Only they could command the JagdMaus out to perform such a mission.

The troops are fighting desperately to stop the enemy.

The Red Skull, has arranged trucks, armored vehicles, and troops to cart away his secret laboratory?  Can they do it?  Can they hold back the enemy long enough to complete his sinister plan?

The Urban Battle Rages

One of the last remaining buildings still standing in the area.

Firing out the windows, getting a small height advantage over the enemy.

Pour on the automatic weapons fire, they have to hold off the enemy just a little longer.

The view out the window is mostly rubble.

The ground battle intensifies.

Who could require such resistance and for what reason?

Unarmored halftracks carry a maximum load over the worst roads.

The officer directs the loading.

A couple of staff cars stand by.

The troops are holding.

The JagdMaus has impressive armor, a massive gun, and a very low top speed!

Prone machine gunner lays down fire.

Fighting with the JagdMaus

The experimental JagdMaus was sent into action!

It is supporting elite German paratroopers on a special mission.

They have to hold this ruined castle until certain material can be removed.

They deliver a high volume of fire with a wide array of automatic weapons.

Grenade launcher fires from the fox hole.

Guard the trucks.
