Little Buddha

A small inclusion for my jungle scenery 




Still have one more of these, which I might include in a temple setting.

Large Park

Bit of effort with trees and things...


Had the fences for ages, only just thought of a use for them


Quite a productive weekend.

Tiger II

One for all you tread-heads out there :) Quick builds by Pegasus



The only ones of these I have, wouldn't mind another couple though



Usual Vallejo paint work, decals scrounged from the spares bag



Command figure by PSC




Nearly 500 produced, in service 1944-5



Easy to assemble, well engineered kits.

Another 88mm

Painted early war style. Paul sent me this a while ago and I finished it this week in between other things currently on the go


Like all of my 88mm guns it is modeled in its firing position 



A couple of pictures with crew


No idea what happened to the company but this one is by Eidai, maybe more like 1/76 scale, not sure?

Great War Beute Panzers

By Dave





Nicely weathered models by Emhar



A7V, also Emhar



These are excellent kits, Emhar's stuff is of consistently good quality.

P51D

Ash got me this a while back




Quite a tidy kit to build, though only comes with decals for the Italian version. I scrounged these from my spares, the little kangaroo decals are not authentic but I thought they'd look alright 



Armament is x2 50lb bombs, x6 3'' rockets + mgs



I marked and painted it for my Korean War aircraft collection, representing the Australian 77Sqd before they converted to Meteors in 1951



I'd like to get some more aircraft for the communist forces as well.

Just arrived

Long overdue in plastic (the venerable Airfix set excempted) these figures by HaT are very good. Although in the mini-set format you still get most of what you need


I think the figures in tropical kit will be good for a multitude of possibilities 1900-1950s


First group immediately added to the production queue.

Armourfast Cromwell

This is a very simple kit with good detail. Over 4000 of these were built, operational 1944-55


I made it up as a command unit because its inclusion now sees me with a full company of these


The command figure is by PSC and comes in the early war cruiser kit


Pictured here beside my older ones, which are by Revell


A very welcome addition courtesy of Jack.

Gunner's Day Gunners

A couple of stands I finished this week


They will fit with multiple eras and theatres


Should be okay for several different nations too


figures are by Ykreol, Emhar and HaT.
