As a change from painting figures decided to construct some wargaming furniture. Using some wheels taken off a Chinese toy tractor, costing 50p, I've put together a German ammo trailer. Not really appropriate for PAK 40 guns it will still add something to the table. Its based on the Sd.Ah.31 design. The camouflage is an early form which appeared in 1936!
SPECIAL THANKS. I would like to thank Paul Watson for his sponsorship of several lead figure collections on this blog. Having decided to clear his spare/surplus figures, he generously forwarded them on with no other requirement than they deserved to be restored. I would also like to mention George S. Mills, who kindly furnished a quantity of plastic figures which allowed me to complete another five or six military units, serving in several collections.

WW2 GERMAN AMMO TRAILER and WEST INDIAN COMMAND
Have completed the command figures for my two battalions of West Indian troops. I've based the officers on some of the originals that Britains supplied in their box sets, converting a fifer and lifeguard.
