The term JMN as best as I
know, was coined by Wooksta on the What-If Forum many years ago.

I used three Dragon
1/18th scale WWII Germans for the JMNs. They were built basically straight from
the box, and I left off their weaponry. Various little things they carry now
were scratch built. The planes are 1/720 scale aircraft from Dragon, Trumpeter,
my spares box, and Italeri. Signs, entry forms, ribbons...all were printed out
on a cheap desktop inkjet printer.
