Re: More Brits

The EWM Morris 15cwt really does look nice, and you've even managed to make the old Airfix gunners look good.

Re: Modelling re-think

It does look much better with the new gun, Richard. The swap was well worth the effort. Had the same problem with some BP cast 20mm Bredas I acquired in a bargain lot - In general I won't ever used BP casts again because of the quality of moulding and sculpting plus the Bredas were way over scale Th...

20mm Sawmill Bits

Still waiting on a new digital camera as a belated Christmas present, but in the meantime I've managed to patch our broken down 15 year old Kodak C330 back together one more time, repairing or replacing the broken plastic parts in it with Evergreen plastic card. https://i.postimg.cc/4xRzstk2/20mm-Sa...

Re: Interesting secondary armament - Tiger I

Nope, not sure that's why I said "appear to be" as these ones have the chunky barrel more like the DS-39 and lack the external ring of the barrel quick change handle on the SG-43. Well, after saving a copy of the pic and looking at it under magnification, I think you are right. The barrel...

Re: Interesting secondary armament - Tiger I

Interesting photo, but are we sure the guns aren't the much more common SG-43 Goryunov?

Re: BPM launches WWII Staghound Armoured Cars

Still not a huge fan of printed models, but the printing quality and detail resolution of BPM (and others) does seem to be getting better and better. Won't be much longer before scratchbuilding skill sets like mine become totally obsolete.

Re: PSR review of Strelets Set 281, Japanese Type 11 Gun

Not a bad set, but kind of an odd choice of weapon, as the 37mm Type 11 (Taisho) infantry gun was not produced in particularly large numbers, and was pretty much relegated to second-line units in China by 1941, replaced by the much more numerous 70mm Type 92 battalion gun. The gun itself might be mo...
