Re: Vehicle ID required please

The Commer Q2 family also included some similar COE models, mostly tractors but also some vans and GS types. Pity we can't see the front of the cab.

Re: Cheap German tow

Brilliant bit of rework for a cheap diecast toy truck, Richard. Being the very sad sort that I am, if I were to make one for myself I think I would have to figure out a way to hide the distinctive postwar Chevy radiator grill, perhaps some sort of brush guard like on the ex-French Army contract GMC ...

Re: Command Decision troop ratings

Thanks David. That enables me to make a more educated guess as to a reasonable Tac (tactical competence) score for each unit. I’d be interested to see the equivalent for morale grade if that’s possible. Or even just confirmation of the top and bottom values. Richard C Morale grades typically run fr...

Re: Command Decision troop ratings

I've been using Command Decision since 1989, but am not at all familiar with TacWW2, and am not really sure what you are looking for. So, here is a scan of the page dealing with Troop Quality from the current Test of Battle version of the rules. Hopefully, it will give some idea of how the ratings a...

Re: help! PLEASE! re Hotchkiss 57mm QF gun

Unfortunately, about all I can do is echo Gary's suggestion for converting a 15mm ACW field gun or similar model. The Navweaps entry on the 6pdr Hotchkiss includes figures for overall gun length and bore length, which would be useful in creating the new gun barrel. Also a couple of photos on naval m...

Re: Strelets Set 245 Finnish Anti-Tank Squad in Summer Dress

That 37mm Bofors would have been handy a few years back as it was a rare and expensive bird :? Indeed. That's why I ended up making my own in resin several years ago. https://i.postimg.cc/G2tCvPfP/37BOFOR1.jpg The FAA ones I had been using were becoming very hard to find. The Strelets ones are a we...

Likewise! Many years ago another online friend from the UK (also named Alan!) sent me a small batch of diecast cars and trucks, which included a couple of Matchbox Ford AA light utilities. Much too big for 20mm, but probably perfect for 28mm SCW or WW2.

Re: Les Char D1 du 4e Regiment Chasseurs D`Afrique

Very nice work, Richard. I'm still using some ancient BP Casts Char D2 as stand-ins for the D1.
