I had a bit of a windfall and headed for the model shop and then the Mil bookshop....... Hylands. Wall to wall history of war and tech Military books - heaven. For once I bought more models than books. Cheaper!
I am still trying to get the Georgian Legion Normandy to finish my Bunker scene but haven't had any luck yet. Also, do any of you know if there are turned barrels for the quad flak 20mm from Tamiya and brass sets for it etc?






And this is going to be a knockout!...literally, thats why I got the KV book.

Hey Ian, when I built my Tamiya Flak 38 I used the Schatton turned barrel. It is really nice and is also good for the quad 20mm. But of course you would have to buy 4 of them . The brass set I used is from eduard and is quite decent.

Link to the 20mm build in my vBench

Cheers

James,
Well, ugrh, Wow - thanks.
Who'd thought that would ever happen, great. Thank you!!
Welcome to the Planet James.........you will have a great time. The crew here are the BEST!
I am steadily subjecting these rogues to my STUFF but I don't want to flood the place. I do have more on the way so just stick around the 'planet 'and they will turn up!
Just make sure we get to see some of your stuff too . Gordy can set you up with a V-bench if you like.
And thank you again for the kind remarks..........now I'll never get my head through the doorway here to go to bed! :lol:

Well I finally got the figures for the diorama of the bunker, thanks to Mic Bradshaw. Got em' fine through the post Mic.
I also got some American figures as well to go with an Easy 8 I have in the cupboard.




I have taken some detail shots of the Georgian Legion figures. If you are interested they are on my Normandy bunker post here on my V-Bench. I will post one here for interest. I quickly put them together after dinner, so they still have some more cleaning up to be done.


The figures are really well carved and the poses are very realistic. My only complaint is the helmuts. They seem a little on the tall side. Has anyone else found that with the DML figures? It could be they are correct and the rest are wrong?

Hello Larry
They are a great set.......... I think I might get some more for some generic surrender poses. I put one of them on the back deck of the Stug and he looked great so I think I will use the 2nd set with a knocked German tank.

Pay day again...........and I suddenly found myself at the bookshop!
Got the second vol. on the elephant before they dissappeared [I am still trying to get Vol 3 on the Panther!]
.......

And at the risk of being drawn and quartered........ a plane [kind of ] book! But it's alright , its for diorama ideas.
..............................
I am fiddling around with some forced perspective ideas for my displays and this kind of thing is 'chocka 'with ideas!
I have scanned a few just to show you because the artwork and the scenes are so'kick ass'. They look nicer in the book but such are the joys of scanning.
The Ardennes........ and check out the hardware on its way to Antwerp. Peiper and the boys! Kingy, Stug 4, panther A and looks like a G and an early 251 Hanomag.


Kursk,.......and there's plenty of lovin' going on down there. T34, burning a plenty!
Can anyone pick the unit and production month of the tigers?


and my favourite because it just captures the Russia thing so well and the cool , burning Stormavic [ Tiger's arch enemy!] Also don't miss the knocked out equipment on the side of the road. Looks like a Mk4 or 3 has come to ruin. Just love it and can look at these for hours , generating ideas. :lol:
