Radio equipped T26s

I painted the ordinary version about 5 years ago and it's taken me to now to add the radio equipped version. This was partly because this version was quite difficult to find and eventually I ordered them from China. https://4.bp.blogspot.com/--4czj13D13w/Xp8Tq2Vz1xI/AAAAAAAAYvU/Neix6vg15h4hjrL6J4SJp...

Re: Changing scales - 15mm or 28mm?

Personally if starting again I would go for 15mm. 20mm is great for modelling and 28mm for painting lots of detail . But it still depends a lot on what nationality/theatre you want to do and the availability of models/figures in that scale.

M35 trucks for Nam

A slight diversion from my current plans, I was distracted by these M35 trucks made by 4D I found them on ebay and acquired three for less than a tenner including postage. Nice simple kits, which are good enough for wargames usage and not as useless as the original kits made by another company calle...

Re: Raid on Andrevia at WMMS

Lovely terrain guys. Its tempting just to come and see it at Crisis Point. (Remind me when and where is this? Assuming there is space for visitors?) Is the railway track your own construction using model railway tracks or a resin casting you have used as base material? Its something I have been pla...
