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!!!
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.
And finally… A brand new fantassin US airborne Gun Crew. The guy on the far right is an old revell pose I painted as a generic gun crewman for an MG or mortar team.
Here’s some shots of my repainted and based airfix farmhouse. I wanted to update it to match the current scenery. Hope you enjoy!
