Re: Churchills for Tunisia

Alexander`s 1st Army units including 6th Armoured Div plus the various infantry tank brigades were all greens as they came directly from the UK and not via Lybia :D These could be 25th Army tank Brigade or Guards Armoured, even North Irish horse (who still had a couple of Mk1s on strength, much to m...

Re: Humber IV turret??

Thanks lads, couldn`t find it on Rolfe`s page ;)

He doesn`t accept orders off me due to some offence he feels did to him in the distant past, I guess I`ll have to think of another solution :lol:

Humber IV turret??

Does anyone do a Humber IV turret, I`m looking to alter 2 off the old Hasawaga Humber II kits (which as you will remember have that odd Canadian turret) !)

I`m not after a 100% perfect conversion, so any pointers will be great - thanks

Re: Total loss of focus and drive :(

Richard B About £300 gets you a printer, software etc. and a kg of Plastic. That's probably less than some armies and enough plastic to print one. I get the don't want to do it bit but the cost is now only that of an army and well less than what we have spent on terrain. You must be talking about s...

Re: Total loss of focus and drive :(

Nah, I have limited skills but little interest in returning to CAD design (something I did in my last real job before ru...
