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.

Bone Yard Panthers

They only needed some new road wheels, I think these might be Mathbox?




Still rough but perfectly functional



All five of my Panthers


Just one short of two full companies in CD3 terms.

Dismounted et al

Dismounted infantry



HaT figures



one complete troop


recently completed place marker


size comparison 


HaT ANZAC figure on the left looks okay next to the original BEF figure by Airfix


The old Airfix set is still useful but clearly 1/76.

Markers

I made a few markers to represent stuff on the tabletop


This group will be used to show where a dismounted cavalry unit has left its horses


These represent disorganised  parachute infantry. The figure on the left I can't identify Hugh et al



Esci figures - most manufactures had a drop canister included on the base 



Last one is an anti tank rifle platoon for my WW2 ANZAC collection.

US 37mm anti-tank guns

Generous Jack sent me these a few weeks back...


I found them extremely fragile and difficult to put together accurately, resulting in a couple of gaps :(


Still, a most welcome addition as they are the only ones I have


By S Models.

Thanks Jack!

PSC A9 Cruisers

My latest early war additions. I now have five of this variant  and a couple of A10s



Didn't have much of a choice with decals, these are about the best I could find



These are excellent models. Will definitely be getting some more :)

Resistance figures

I got a mixture of loose figures by Caesar a while ago, and these were among them



CD3 does have the provision for this type of "unit" but they are quite rare in all but special scenarios



I'm sure I'll find a way to include them at some stage.

A few more buildings

A couple more minor building projects complete





Made the roof for this one from old credit cards



And, some of my older buildings got a minor spruce up too.

Panzer IVDs

This week's progress



Good, tidy, models. Well engineered, no flash. They more or less snap together



I have a whole company of these now


Command figure is by Preiser


Decals from the spares bag. Coming to an early war invasion, soon :)
