Aviation Archive

I picked this magazine up the other day as the content wad on medium bombers of ww2. Included within​ the pages are details of 27 aircraft with b&w photos,some colour drawings and some cutaway artworks.  

Planes covered include the Heinkel He 111, Vickers Wellington,Ilyushin IL 4, B25 Mitchell and a old favourite of mine the Martin B-26 Marauder. 

All in all looks like an interesting read.

A light mortar.

Plt commander

3 x brens

3 x stens

 And 3 x rifles

And that's it for today - need to travel.
Take care all.

British Paras 1st platoon

All painting on this project has now finished, figures are all based and bases completed. Some are photographed and the rest will be done over the next couple of glorious days.

First up are a few pictures of the 1st platoon. Pictures are poor but I'm hoping to take some better ones tomorrow in natural light.

The complete platoon of 12 bases, including platoon commander, a light mortar and a PIAT along with

3x rifles

3 x stens

And 3x Brens.

There are another two platoons (of the same composition) , a MMG platoon, a medium mortar platoon and an engineer platoon along with the 6pdrs and tows.

Take care all.

Starting a new project.

And to start off this new project we have the following pictures of British infantry marching (cbr1) from Baccus. Colonial range.

April fools - i did enjoy painting these even though they were hard work. I had a go over Christmas to see how they would be to paint up. I don't think this is a scale i will go with but saying that Baccus's new ECW range look very tempting.

Thanks for dropping by.
