First up are those Crescent Saladin armoured cars I recently picked up. Paint stripped and repaired, have adopted the British camouflage used in Aden in 1967.
Next up is that badly scratched Lone Star Radar Truck, now with it's new RAF blue paint job. The coat of varnish has gone on very nicely.
The third is the broken Benbros despatch rider's motorbike. Quite a bit of work here, had to construct the top section of the control panel/handlebars, and the rear mudguard. Then devise a system to securely fix the bike to the base. Decided to convert one of the spare Lone Star paratroopers into a rider. As part of the 7RHA his job is to confirm the route for the artillery vehicles.
I especially love the conversion of the motorbike rider. That is very clever.ReplyDelete
Cheers Q. I have so far converted three of these figures, one is a map reading officer, another is a gunner, this was the tricky one. I am determined to get some value out of this particular casting, and still have three more. Anyhow, that bike was going to need a rider. With limited funds, I can't afford any losses, lol.Delete
All four vehicles look amazing Michael! The conversion of the bike rider is perfect and the farm lady is beautiful! I always like to see the different civilians in your games, they add texture and realism to the scene!ReplyDelete
Cheers Brad. I have just gone back to the bike and reduced the control panel. Its much better now. Have also altered the placing of the figure so that it links with the handlebars. The bike now looks practically the same as the original model. Regards. That civilian will work well with my Schleswig collection.Delete
