BEF digging in along the Seigfried Line

These are the first of my BEF Tommies. There are many more on the table awaiting paint. I'm about to order a bunker from Steve Weston that will provide a great base for them to defend against the Fallshirmjagers and the onslaught of tanks about to make their way West!

More German Para's

These chaps are currently training in secret locations for their drops into France during the weekend of 8th & 9th May!

German Paratroops (Airfix 1/32)

I've been neglecting my 1/32 painting lately but the first lot of German Paratroops are nearly there, this is the first one I've finished. I always try and get one done to use as a reference point for all the others, that way they all look the same in terms of painting style. I didn't paint any in camo yet as I want to use them as early war pattern and also I couldn't be bothered lol. The British infantry are more like early war period anyway so they fit quite well together.

New German Armour

These are the new Italeri fast build PzIII's, with long 50mm barrel. There is another short barrel option in the kit. They are extremely easy to make and look great. I haven't painted the details and I'm not sure I need to, better time spent on more kits and figures!
