Some very original work here by David...

Strangely, I don't see the children's hand in this project :)

Beside the most excellent ANZAC infantry set by HaT

Nice work Dave, awesome.

1940/41 US Infantry - Pacific

Just the one company at this stage

Much improved recent products from these guys

Command platoon

Rifle platoons

Probably change the colour on the rest, I think these are a bit bright.

Schneider 155 Infantry Gun

 An item from the loot Paul sent me a while back, another scratch-built beauty by Gerard Davey - this gives me two of these Turns out this is a French piece...

The earlier versions like this one had wooden wheels and were often horse-drawn - true of the French army too

Pictured here beside another gun of similar caliber, a 150L11, which is a later model by Caesar.

T34 Repaint

Repainted these to fit better with my other models of this type

Vallejo colours and a little attention to the running gear

Beside a PSC version for comparison 

Five of the seven I have in my collection, my two Airfix ones currently being refitted.

HO Houses

These are more or less completed, possibly the perfect footprint size for the rules I use

I added a removable floor to each. I do this wherever possible to buildings like these, and the addition gives CD3 another dimension - especially in more heavily built-up-areas

Just a bit more paintwork needed to add a little detail

You can never have too much scenery!

Mine Layer

Tracy got me this novelty ship a while ago, I've since altered it to fit in with the rest of the fleet

It is about 1/87 scale

The forward gun is a 75L12

Certainly more useful than it originally was :)

Colonial Constabulary

Research for a scenario I'm working on revealed the need for a small unit of armed police, "... of about 120 constables; variously armed." So I had a scrounge through my spares box and came up with the following...

A couple of figures got 'coolie hat' head-swaps, the rest are standard Esci figures 

Somewhere in the Dutch East Indies.
