What`s on the work bench?

Post by Richard B. » Fri Aug 31, 2018 5:27 pm

Back in the groove (well sort of)

Written another Tunisia `43 game for Spain, started planning a new Mexican game also :D

On the painting tray (built and undercoated today) -
Airfix Bofors + Morris tow and crew
EWM 37mm Bofors At gun with a Raventhorpe crew
A unknown resin Panhard 178, altered to the German service spec - PzSpw P.204 (f) :D

Having had a successful August I'm moving on to WW1 in the Middle East with loads of camels and adding a trio of PSC sextons to maintain balance. Maybe I'll get around to making a few British portees as well.
What's the point of doing one period, when you can do them all.......... In life most people specialise so gradually they know more and more about less and less so eventually they know everything about nothing. I work on a broad front so eventually I'll know nothing about everything.

Like Will, I have the British and Australian WW1 Camelry to start, plus the new Strelets WW2 8th Army heavy weapons set. I'm also working on a PSC 25 lbr battery for the desert. I also managed to get hold of the Italeri Wirbelwind kit which needs assembly, as well as a pair of Zvezda M3 Lees.

Cheers, Andy

Just finished 48 Cent 10/11/12/13 - and a 15mm conversion of PSC Valentine to Bishop, working slowly on similar to Archer. Got the part work with 3 GW space marines, and am going shopping later today.

Need to scratch some LCA's for next July....
Anything bigger than 6 is TOOOO big.

1/144 LUCHS , this is my second attempt at a military model. So far its going well. Test print of the basic hull went well, I even got the props in? I may look at selling the PDF for this one, well not me AOTRS Shipyards but I need to find a site. Why you ask when the Minifigs does one? Two reasons, main is that I am beginning to hate metal, its not a good material, chips paint and bends and no replacement turrets and crude. Plastic tough, never chips is drop resistant and you can get spare parts. Plus the Minifigs turret is well of the real thing. As a benerfit I am going to attemp a turret retention feature a keway like on som injection moulded 1/72 vehicles.

Ps can anybody shed any light on the props. They seem to be reversed in some pictures do they turn them round 180 deg on thir mounting for protection (the blades move further under the hull when this happens)?

Yep. The propellers are steerable, travel position is the same as full reverse. When rigging to swim they'd spin around the other way.

On my workbench? I've just finished some Italian M11/39 tanks and I've now got a mix of A9 and A10 Cruisers lined up to face them. Going to do one of the A9s as a knocked out hulk just for fun. Also need to finish up my 15mm desert terrain and then the whole lot will be for some 1940 Western Desert games of What a Tanker down at the club.

Slowly working on clearing some longtime residents of the overflowing WIP boxes. Just finished some more trucks for my desert Free French, including a pair of Chevrolet CC60L and a couple of Raventhorpe Citroen T23. I painted the Citroens in Caunter camo just to be different, and to emulate a couple of photos I found of a column of Free French Citroens in Caunter. Also finally got around to painting the pair of 40mm Bofors for my Fusiliers Marin AA battery, started almost a decade ago. Still haven't finished building the tractors for them, or the truck-mounted quad 13.2mm Hotchkiss AA.

Next up are a couple of Soviet trucks (including a stray GAZ-AA and a GAZ-AAA RSB-F radio van), an Ace FAI-M armored car, a Bedford Kfz.12 umbauwagen (a German heavy car conversion of captured Bedford MW light trucks), and an FAA 2cm Flak 30.

Alas, there is still plenty more left to paint in the stash...

Serret, thanks, hard to find such information. Out of curiosity how did you know/find out?

I'll have to set up a new image hosting account before that will be possible. Considering trying postimage.org but haven't made a decision yet.
