MMG and one or two other figures burgled from various sets for variety, plus a few pack-packs and rifles added.An engineer platoon using an extension on the flame-thrower from the WW1 German Airfix set. The officer from the Italian set was a behemoth and required substantial alterations before he would fit in nicely with other figures from the same set.

You get two models per box, which I can't show because the store I brought them from will take them out to save you money on the postage, at your request.They took all of about five minutes to complete and are an excellent addition to my early war Soviet collection.

Next, the awesome Jadpanther. You only get two of these in a company, they come from the heavy tank destroyer battalion, which at times included Stugs, Elephants and the even more deadly Jadtiger.
And here are a few platoons from my SS Motorised Infantry Regiment. They are mostly from the Pegasus set but, as always, there are a couple of other brands included for variety.

A couple of Churchill bridge layers, one rigged and one deployed. Don't use these much but they are a good kit to make, well engineered, with clear instructions.

As you can see, the scale is very good, and the building fits into almost every conceivable theatre of the war, style wise.
I don't think it was too expensive. It was a model train building but I can't remember the brand name, possible 'Life Like'. I would recommend this kind of building to all gamers.

A company US Marines for 1941-2, why this unit is better represented in plastic more than Royal Marines is beyond me!
Command units for the Alpine Infantry, with engineer and mortar platoons from the same formation Finally, some Soviet Naval Infantry, and a half finished hill

These are the soft plastic Airfix Centurions. They have featured in only a couple of games thus far, but will certainly be in a few more now that my Korean War project is becoming better researched. The lead tank has had the turret hatch drilled out to accommodate a command figure. I can understand that serious model makers aren't that fond of this kind of kit (if you can call it a kit) but for wargames they are just fine.

T26 of unknown manufacture. I would like to get some more light tanks, such as BTs, to add to this part of my collection.
Last one, a resin BA armoured car. Really looking forward to seeing some of the new Pegasus Soviet additions in our stores, having said that however, stores are few and far between in New Zealand.

Resin T35, they only made about sixty of these before the war. Showing its age a bit now, I bought it in Poland but it has been to many more places since then.
T28M2s, one resin, one metal which caused quite a stir in Changi one night with customs officers passing it around with reckless abandon after it set off the metal detectors.

Another anti-tank gun sporting a Thunderbird leg barrel.
Last one, actual kitset gun barrels on scratch-built chassis.

relief forces arrived after fighting through the road-blocks. (US figures are a mixture of several brands, British are from A Call to Arms)
Last picture is my friend mustering more UN relief forces, which would engage the Communist road-blocks, so that the trucks and jeeps they were escorting could evacuate the Americans.
