Re: Mexican Revolution Inventory

A fantastic collection, Richard. The scratchbuilt Mexican Hotchkiss 37mm automatic cannon is still one of my favorite bits you've done. I only wish they were more widely used, so I could find an excuse to make one for myself.

Re: more and new Dutch WW2 from Shellhole in 20mm

Does anyone know if the Bohler ATG found its way into German use after the occupation, cracking little bit of kit ,thanks for posting Carl et al. John Yes, they did. Beute designations were 4.7cm PaK 187(h) and 4.7cm PaK 188(h). Not sure which designation applies to which version, but one is the or...

Re: air support

Thanks David. A photo of your climb and dive device would help us aspiring to such skills, if you don't object to be copied! As they do look good. CarlL PS copying your skills l doubt but your idea sounds clever if it's one that's OK to copy!? No objection at all to being copied. However, I don't h...

Re: air support

David Are your aircraft stands home made or bought in? They look good with transparent bases. CarlL Carl, sorry for the late response but only just saw your query. They are homemade, using 1/4" plexiglass sheet from the local home improvement store and cheap telescoping "rabbit ear" type TV antenna...

Re: air support

Most of my WW2 20mm games have featured air support to some degree or another, with the aircraft appearing over the table in the form of 1/72 models. https://i.postimg.cc/SNSgMfQT/A-24-Over-Java.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/4xznRVVG/Shot-Down.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/4NJTx0Km/NASH0900.jpg https://i.post...

Re: Fargo truck 1940s era

Might be a bit extreme just to get a suitable cab, but the Wespe/Retrokit Dodge "Tanake" armored car kit has a hollow cast Dodge cab that is pretty much an exact match for what you want. https://www.wespemodels.com/military_models/military_models_scale_1_72/scale_1_72_dodge/dodge_tanake_wes_r023 Odd...

Re: End of year totals 2018

Utterly puts me to shame, and this has actually been a rather productive year for me, at least compared with the previous two. In 20mm, I've managed to paint 35 figures, 3 armored vehicles, 9 cars and trucks, and 5 artillery pieces during 2018. No aircraft or terrain this year, although I have scrat...

Re: Canon de 65 M (Montagne) Modèle 1906

It's taken me 15 months to set up a new image hosting account since the Photobucket fiasco, but here are a couple of photos of the master model for the SHQ 65mm Mle.1906, taken before I sent them off to SHQ's mold-maker. I also turned up a photo of an early, "pre-production" casting of the Moonlite ...
