U.S. jeeps and crews

I have been away from the hobby on holiday then moving and am glad to be finally back completing projects.  Up first is a set of US jeeps and crew.  I built 2 recce jeeps with .50 and .30 cal mgs and an HQ and Forward Spotter.  The jeeps are Academy, Airfix, and Hasagawa with spares from SHQ, and blackdog.  The crews are AB.  Hope you enjoy!
Cheers,
Ted

   
    
    
    
    
    
   

British Airborne Project

below are some group shots of the entirety of my British airborne forces.  Further in the post I will comment on the individual pieces that have not been seen yet, (some of these are from previous posts as well).  This is it for now for this project, although eventually I want to collect all the remaining poses from AB, and I would like to model the airborne 6pdrs in towin mode… Guess I’ll have to wait until I get some more funds… Perhaps I will complete it leading up to a September game to commemorate the glorious battle of Arnhem!  Hope you enjoy!

Cheers,

Ted









Here are some SHQ riders in the trailer that I just completed





And next are some AB/TQD foot soldiers to add to the collection





And some shots of my 6pdrs and 75mm howitzers crews and tows… The guns are brand new additions the 75s are Airfix, and the 6pdrs are Early War Miniatures 20mm zone.





And next I am showing off some new 17pdrs with C8 Morris tows from Revell with SHQ riders…. Gun crews are previously painted Waterloo figures





And finally some brand new Airfix jeeps with AB crewmen and SHQ stowage/conversion kits, Valuegear and other SHQ bits…. Been waiting a long time to finish off this part of the jeep project and I am very happy with results!!





British Airborne Additions

Here is an ongoing project to beef up support options for my British Airborne Army. The figures are AB, SHQ, Waterloo 1815, and Hat conversions. The guns are Waterloo 1815, the jeeps are refurbs from eBay, and Airfix kits. I have 30 more riders from AB/SHQ to paint and am planning on making 4-5 more jeeps…. Some recce, and an HQ jeep. Additionally I am awaiting some TQD airborne poses to beef up my core group and dismounted HQ. They should be here any day. Down the road I hope to replace the plastic figures with the AB full range… They’re just too tough to beat! Hope you enjoy!!!

Cheers,

Ted

Refurbs and additions

Below are some projects I completed in the last few days. Starting with an armourfast StuH42 that I refurbished with stowage, and schurzen and repainted in a generic camo.

Crew is on the way.

Next is an old beat up airfix 88 and some hasegawa crewmen that I repainted and based as a mini diorama. Basically throwaway kits and now it will make a very nice heavy AT gun emplacement.
