ANZAC Boats

Some very original work here by David...




Strangely, I don't see the children's hand in this project :)







Beside the most excellent ANZAC infantry set by HaT



Nice work Dave, awesome.

1940/41 US Infantry - Pacific

Just the one company at this stage

Much improved recent products from these guys



Command platoon



Rifle platoons



Probably change the colour on the rest, I think these are a bit bright.

German 150L11 Infantry Gun

 An item from the loot Paul sent me a while back, another scratch-built beauty by Gerard Davey - this gives me two of these




The earlier versions like this one had wooden wheels and were often horse-drawn




Pictured here beside my other 150L11, which is a later model by Caesar.

T34 Repaint

Repainted these to fit better with my other models of this type




Vallejo colours and a little attention to the running gear



Beside a PSC version for comparison 


Five of the seven I have in my collection, my two Airfix ones currently being refitted.

HO Houses

These are more or less completed, possibly the perfect footprint size for the rules I use



I added a removable floor to each. I do this wherever possible to buildings like these, and the addition gives CD3 another dimension - especially in more heavily built-up-areas



Just a bit more paintwork needed to add a little detail



You can never have too much scenery!

Mine Layer

Tracy got me this novelty ship a while ago, I've since altered it to fit in with the rest of the fleet



It is about 1/87 scale



The forward gun is a 75L12




Certainly more useful than it originally was :)

Colonial Constabulary

Research for a scenario I'm working on revealed the need for a small unit of armed police, "... of about 120 constables; variously armed." So I had a scrounge through my spares box and came up with the following...




A couple of figures got 'coolie hat' head-swaps, the rest are standard Esci figures 




Somewhere in the Dutch East Indies.

M24 Chaffee

This little beauty was in the stash that Paul sent me. A lot of nations used this AFV, and nearly 5000 were built


I unbuttoned it, added a crew figure and a MG 


A lick of paint and a couple of decals and it's tabletop ready


I think this model is by Matchbox Hasegawa (thanks Paul)


I'll use this more with my Korean War collection, a very welcome inclusion thanks mate :)
