Bone Yard T34s

Probably the oldest kits in my collection. This pair by Airfix have been in the bone yard a long time



The tracks are from a resin T35



T34/41



And, T34/85


Total of five T34s in my Russian stuff now, the others are by PSC.

Work Bench

Ash went home last week so I've been back in the cave catching up


Kiwis. The first of three planned formations, the black ones at the back will form part of a machine gun battalion


This is a Dragon 251/1, a very detailed kit by my standards


Airfix German para now at about the 3/4 stage


Played a few board games with Ash while she was here, which prompted me to get back to finishing the characters from the expansion set for Last Night on Earth.

Seldom if ever bored :)

Fences and Trees

Some very useful additions...


Jack sent me the fences a while back - four different styles


And, I based up some more trees while I was at it


Plenty on the go :)

Japanese Type 4 Ke-Nu

Finished these last night



Nice little x4 part resins by Frontline



One of the more successful Japanese light tanks of WW2



I'll get one more at some stage and make it a command platoon to finish off the company.

From Girls

Our visiting daughter sprung these on me for Father's Day, joy!
Then, Tracy added two, joy!


Never had the Afrika Korp set before, so bonus. The South Africans I'm thinking to mix with the HaT Tropical set http://www.plasticsoldierreview.com/Review.aspx?id=2103 we'll see? And the Kiwi's, well, more is better :)

German AA guns

A couple of additions to the light AA guns in my German collection


37mm by Hasegawa


Quad 20mm by Fujimi 


Both can be taken off their ground mounts and fitted to vehicles.

Airfix 222

From the recon set




For my early war collection



Beside my only other 222


Didn't quite get the attention it deserved and I may add some crew figures. Paul's one here is a good example http://plasticwarriors.blogspot.com.au/2012/06/airfix-sdkfz-222-refurbish.html

Fleet Transports

If they all look like pirate ships, it's because they arrrrrrrrrrrr...



This one sports an AALMG








Rough enough, and needed for my current map project.

Morane Saulnier

I have had this in the stash for a long time, it is my only French aircraft



A very old kit. Not particularly well engineered


it did, however, come with its own pilot figure - bonus!



The decals disintegrated at the mere sight of water, so I found some Italian ones and painted them as best I could 



Not my best work but it will do.

New figures + progress

Never thought I would ever see New Zealand soldiers made in plastic


Strelets is certainly delivering consistently in unusual subjects, and their products (especially sculpting) are getting better all the time


couple of poses here of the Kiwis in their famous 'Lemon Squeezer' head dress; including a minor alteration I'm looking to make on these


This is my early war Aifix German para project at about the halfway stage



Last couple represent a platoon of the RAF Regiment that I need for my next map scenario.
