Thank you for the kind words folks.
I must get back to my 'imaginations' modern armies soon, but I am busy finishing my modular terrain tiles for 15mm Colonial games in the Sudan using Bob Cordery's 'Portable Wargame' rules

Nice work! Lots of potential for Cold War era imagi-nations forces in those toy vehicles.

A pair of die cast metal Hasbro Titanium Series Indiana Jones Trucks pressed into service as pseudo Einheits trucks. One finished except for weathering the inside of the canvas top and the other, with a removable cargo load I built, is still a WIP.

I've been rather busy the past couple of months with working on projects for other folks, and with relocating my workbench, WIP and unbuilt kit stash, and computer desk to another room in the house (which also meant moving and reorganizing my entire library as well to make room for everything) in order to create space for a more handicapped accessible arts and crafts room for my wife. Finally had an opportunity this weekend to resume work on the next batch of 3 IHC diecast truck conversions. Here they are ready for a coat of primer:

At left is another Fiat 15-ter light GS truck for my Italians (this time will be in grey-green, rather than sand as before); at center is the later license-built Soviet version, a 1931 AMO F-15 light GS truck for my early-war Russkies; and at right a generic radio or telephone signals van, this time for my Romanians.

Great conversions.
Sounds like you have had your hands full, making life easier for your wife and her mobility needs. Hope this works out for you both.
Look forward to seeing the painted versions at a later date.

I`ve just picked up a fire engine, which i`m going to alter into a make-shift tow for my Volksgrenadier unit :lol:

David,

I really like seeing what you do with all your various "toy" conversions.
Going the extra mile to add the suspension springs really adds to the end product in the IHC conversions.
(I confess to being a slacker by not adding certain details when I convert things.)
Can't wait to see these finished.

Bill

(moving worksites doesn't seem to have slowed you down too much. certain your wife appreciates the space swap.)
