Airfix Fallschirmjager (mostly)

Been on and off this project for almost a year but my early war German parachute regiment is now more or less finished

1st Battalion


3rd - needs a mortar platoon

The beginnings of a machine gun battalion

Regimental assest

Company command platoons

About every 3rd or 4th figure was altered in some way and I added weapon slings where I could

The powerful engineer flamethrower platoon

The regiment is for 1939-42. I still need a handful of stands to fully complete it but I've run out of mortars, machine guns and command figures :)

M3 halftrack

Another for the motor pool, this one is by Academy

Quite a good kit

Here is the rest of my M3 collection out of the box for a touch up.

WW2 New Zealand Infantry

By Strelets - most excellent!

I removed the bases for a better height match with other figures. Only the rifle platoons finished at this stage

The unit is organised to cover the period 1939-42

The uniform colours are a bit more early war in style too; green webbing of the older pattern

Now working on a second rifle battalion, command sections, mortars, medium machine guns, engineers, etc.

Plus, all my other usual things on the go :)

Dragon 251/1

Incredibly detailed kit for this scale

I did mine standard German grey as I only have two others in this colour scheme

Lots of details, nice kit to make

Any more of these I get will be the Armourfast ones.

Hasegawa Trucks

My friend Dave has been busy

Nice kits, loads of detail

I think these count as 'heavies' transporting x3 infantry stands each, but if they're 'mediums' only x2

Nice cargo side additions too. Good stuff Dave :)

More Boats

Last couple needed...

Found this in a junk shop, a pleasure trip raft sort of thing

Another pirate ship hull

Transports complete.

We just completed over 3000km on our road trip. One small town had a toy shop - all half price :) The Tomica stuff is for road bridge I have in mind.

The girls were no drama and spent most of the trip with their head's out of the windows of the Land Rover, leaving lots of drool to add to the dirt :)

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


And, T34/85

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