Great War BEF Cavalry

The first of three such formations...

Nice figures but I would liked to have seen the infantry figures released first

Recon section

Command section

Mostly Vallejo paints and Citadel washes

I enjoyed putting these together and will hopefully show you the whole regiment in the not-too-distant future. Once the infantry set gets released I intend to make dismounted stands to go with each of the mounted ones

Dapol Shop/Flat

Tidy railway building with a modern look

Added a floor to the second storey as I try to do with all of my building models 

Bit still to touch up, may yet add window frames, etc

Beside my other modern styled buildings.

Nautical Accessories

Ever been dragged into a shop with your partner?

I managed to find something for myself in a sea of incense, tablecloths, pretty mirrors, lace, etc, etc. $10 the lot :) The colours didn't do much for me though, what do you reckon? A bit too much pastel? 

Always wanted a lighthouse

The fishing smacks are just for looks, no self-respecting old-salt-dog (yeah, that's you Col) or marine would go near em :)

You can never have too much scenery!

Boat Crew Two

Didn't really have the mojo flowing with this one, but finished it is

Similar figure combination and kit as the first attempt

I have actually got a few raider scenarios with OOBs and everything, so these might get a run a some stage later on down the track

On a bit of a harbour theme at the moment, more on that soon.

Airfix Airborne Jeep

Got this a while ago, only just got around to making it

This is a nicely engineered kit and quite good value for money at AU$12

You get several options, including machineguns for the jeep; no crew however, which would have been a useful inclusion

I'm thinking of pulling out my Jeep collection now and seeing if I can't improve on their appearance a bit with some new paintwork and decals.

Rolls Company

Finally finished my Rolls Royce armoured car company with the completion of this one...

Similar nondescript camouflage pattern and markings to my earlier addition 

Standard model but, as with the first, I changed the machinegun for one with a bit more definition 

Though they still have an individual look too

Here is the full company for British forces

And, Polish

Far East, British or Dutch

I have wanted to build a company of these for a long time. These are all resin models by Frontline, highly recommended.

Zvezda 2lb

Detailed model this, quite a few parts but accurate and a nice finish

Modified infantry officer and one of the figures that comes with the kit

Gunners are posed separately because in CD rules  they can be driven away from their guns

The gun has had a second dark wash since I took this picture

Cool addition to my early war collection.
