Work in Progress

So many projects so little time...


This gift from Paul the other night plus the one I picked up during the holidays gives me a finished company of each the Char B1 and FT17. Very much chuffed as this has been a goal for ages and ages


Flamethrower  Enigneer company, which is part of my late war panzergrenadier regiment


Support Company command stands also for the panzergrenadiers



Some Great War French that I've been neglecting for about a year, Pegasus and Airfix


A selection of old engineer stands out for a touch up, mostly Revell

    1. Totally agree Tim, how big is your total French collection? With my latest additions I can muster a full DLM battalion

    2. Bearing in mind that I use a scale of 1 toy=a battalion, I have 12 Infantry Divs, 2 Motorised Inf, 2 DCR and 2 DLM - one of the latter convertible into a DLC. Well you did ask...

  5. A lot going on here. Are you preparing for something specific with the French apt? We are playing CD-TOB tomorrow: the battle of Mokre.

    1. mmm, going to try and narrow things down a bit too. Mokre is an excellent game, Gerard had the map almost perfect when we played it at his place and I think this makes a big difference

  8. A hoard of treasures

    You didn't fancy painting that 1940 French Char B1 bis as a German flamethrower circa 1941/42
