Re: Vehicle ID required please

The AoS marking is for an RASC Divisional Petrol Company so an impressed civilian GS truck is a possibility. Though the rear looks very much like a military 30cwt bodywork. Not much help.

EDIT - might be a requisitioned commercial Fordson as the E88W is similar?

Lockdown sale - Phase 1 Aircraft, vehicles and figures

During lockdown I have sorted through my stash and realised that the remnants of the models that belonged to Brian who was murdered a few years ago and my stash total far more than I can store let alone build. You may remember that I have sold off kits to provide holidays and support to Brian’s fami...

Re: Did I imagine it?

Ian, you are probably correct. I have pictures of all sorts of vehicles from bikes to trucks festooned with troops carrying panzerfausts. Found 2 vehicles that have Panzerschrecks fitted - Bren carrier and panzerjager Wanze, the rest have the Panzerschreck carried by the troops who presumably dismou...

Did I imagine it?

Old age is catching up with me (again I hear you say). I have a vague memory of seeing somewhere photo of a Kubelwagen fitted out as a panzerjager with a mounting for several Panzerschrecks. Can I find it now? No. Is that because I imagined it or have I confused it with the Jeep fitted with bazookas...

Ruined Barn - Normandy

My son printed this addition to our Normandy set up. The ruined farmhouse now has a ruined barn. Though designed for WW2 it will suit many periods and scenarios. https://i.imgur.com/xkKDSYL.jpg Now has a ruined barn (28mm German Grenadier for scale: https://i.imgur.com/iPGvEB9.jpg https://i.imgur.co...

Dinky, Corgi and Poundland toys go to war (in 28mm)

For some upcoming games that were planned before we were "Borised" again, that I had decided were to be recce based rather than an attack/defence or delaying action, advance to contact etc I have been scouring the old boxes. All in all a massive saving on the price of plastic or resin mode...

Re: First model from Spain

Carl, I got the basic trucks on either e-bay or car boot sales usually as part of a job lot. Corgi Cameo and Lledo trucks form a significant part of my "generic" transport fleets. see http://www.morvalearth.co.uk/Inch_High_Club/Morvalistan%201940/Mvstn40_02/Morvalistan%2040_2.htm http://ww...

Re: First model from Spain

Very nice, Richard. I think it would do quite nicely as an Italian caravan as well. David I used the same truck to make "Italian" troop carriers. http://www.morvalearth.co.uk/Inch_High_Club/Morvalistan%201940/Mvstn40_02/101_0651.JPG and portees for Anti-Tank guns http://www.morvalearth.co...
