1/35 Dragon Fallschirmjager

Hi guys, this is a Dragon plastic multi part Fallschirmjager figure, the head is resin (can't remember the make though) the ammo box probably shouldn't be yellow.

1st Bavarian Dragoon regt, Hat/Italeri 1/72 plastics

Hi guys, this is another of the 1/72 Napoleonic vignettes that I have completed, this is the 1st Bavarian Dragoon regt, I used Hats riders 8/10 with Italeri Dragoon horses 8.5/10(which is a good combination) Hats horses aren't as good as Italeri's but the riders a pretty good. I hand painted the Bavarian flag on the base, if I continue on with these vignettes will print them in future, I'm pretty happy with how this whole vignette turned out.

15mm Napoleonic 1st Bavarian infantry regt 15mm AB/Fantassin: Scotts commision

Hi guys, this is the 1st Bavarian infantry regt made with 15mm AB and Fantassin figures, this is an interesting comparison, I have a few Fantissin figures now for Scott's and my Bavarians (I have a Bavarian army waiting to be painted and based) and my Peninsula Brits, as usual the AB figures are great but these had a little flash 8.5/10, the fantassins fit in nicely size wise with the AB, and the overall look is pretty good, they are not quite as good in some areas like the faces, I really like the command figures, they add some variety when added with ABs, they had a bit of flash and chunky bits that needed trimming, I suspect due to worn molds, they are also pewter figures, I prefer soft metal 7.5/10, the first 4 command figures and the last 4 grenadier figures in the first photo are fantissin the rest are AB

Th Bright Eagles

Hi guys, this is a dio I did a couple of years ago for the Bolter and Chainsword http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/ they had a DIY Chapter swap, where we all had to paint a figure from another members Chapter, This is an assault marine and scout from the "Bright Eagles" The assault marine has just cut the heart from his foe, it was a bit off fun.

Dragons 1/72 Porsche Jagd Tiger

Hi guys, this is Dragons 1/72 Porsche Jagd Tiger, very nice kit, replace the barrel with an armo one detailed with wire and plasticard and zimmerit was made with liquid glue, it gives a very subtle zimmerit effect , this kit had black rubber tracks but they weren't to bad 8/10

Fujimi's 1/76 Elefant

Hi guys, this is Fujimi's 1/76 Elefant, the zimmerit was made with a heated hobby knife (first and last time I use this technique, not happy with the results) this one had pretty stiff thick rubber tracks, took a bit of 2 part epoxy putty to get them to sit right, its not too bad a kit 7/10 but I collect 1/72 not 1/76 and since I bought and made this kit, Dragon and Trumpeter have both brought put 1/72 Elefants/Ferdinand's, I have made Trumpeter's excellent Ferdinand and have their Elefant in the collection too do.

Pick the faults

Hi guys, this is an old dio I did about 6 years ago, I had a working knowledge of WWII but thankfully my knowledge and skill is a lot better now, this is a scene where a PzIII L has thrown a track and a 251 has stopped on their way past to cover and pick up the crew. There are some faults both historical and artistically, bragging rights for whomever can name them and the models/figures used.

Saxon Legere Regt 15mm ABs: Scott's commision

Hi guys, this is Scott's Saxon Legere Regt finished, the figures are AB 9/10, Scott provided a drummer in this unit, I have only found references for a bugler so have made an educated guess about the uniform and drum.
