Unbelievably it's been months since I last had the opportunity to post an update on this blog. Like many I'm currently in self-isolation/quarantine at home after returning to Australia from the UK. I imagine I'll be in this situation for quite a few months and again like many I'm going to use the opportunity to get a few things back on track - including this blog.
I have had some positive things happen over the last few months - with one of the most prominent being a published scenario in Wargames, Soldiers & Strategy magazine (Issue 106). I'll have more information on that soon, including fixing the odd error that made it into the magazine and adding some stuff that was missed out a whole lot of random events that can spice up the scenario. I'll see if I have any other pics that I took for the article that didn't make it into print and will share those as well.
But today I thought I'd share some photos of what's on my workbench. Many of these of models I'm making/painting for a friend and a couple are for me. I thought this would be a good way to bring the blog back up to speed. I've also some pics of figures and some vehicles to post up as well - they'd be in the near future.
So - once again - on with the show:
Here's a couple M109Gs by S&S Models. Not sure how well you can see but the spades at the rear are down for firing.
Here's another S&S Models vehicle. This time a MAN Utility LKW gl (4x4 Truck)
Next up are a couple of M113G's, this time from Hobbyden. Very nice, straight forward models which just needed a bit of green-stuff to fix things like air bubble holes in the smoke dischargers. Once painted I'll add the Commander's hatch , the pintle mount and the MG3 that come with the model.
This is another Hobbyden M113 variant. This time a Panzermorser which comes with a metal 120mm mortar.
Yet another Hobbyden model. This time a M577G.
Final M113 variant. A unique West German vehicle the M113 Beobachtungspanzer. There was some significant damage done to this model, so it needed a fair amount of green stuff to fix it.
The final three models are actually for my collection - not my mates...
Back to S&SD Models - a lovely little Iltis with the soft top up. I'll be using this for my Fallschirmjager Command of OP vehicles - amongst other uses.
Finally a couple of old school Unimogs, again from S&S Models. These will be for my Danish Motorised Infantry.
So that's it for now. Next post will be more W-I-P photos after cam netting has been added to some of the vehicles.
So stay well everyone, wash your hands and keep away from everyone!
