More 20mil Madness



 First up an Airfix Focke-Wolf 190F8, the box dated the kit to around the 1970s, the decals had held up pretty well the transparent bits were a tad yellowed but it is hardly noticeable now it has been weathered up.

Next a truck Dave kindly donated to me when he off loaded his Afrika Korps collection, I have finally got around to repainting it. The standing figures are Britannia the seated ones Foundry with SHQ stowage and I believe the truck is also a SHQ one.


Lastly three pinned markers, the Russian tanker is FAA, the German an OP Battlefield Miniatures figure and the seated chap I converted from an FAA downed Vietnam USA pilot.

Next up is this wee beastie, totally mad I know but I just love the wackiness of it.


Matt is kindly hosting an Operation Sealion game tomorrow via Zoom and next day I will be off to GHQ for an AWI game, life is good.

  1. The truck is SHQ, I'd forgotten about it - no surprise there though. Nice job on it and the FW! Will it appear though. Looking forward to seeing the weird thingie made up and painted to your usual brilliant standard.

    1. Will it appear, doubtful. I can't even have a timed strike with it😂

  2. I like the diorama feel of the truck ….. that monster 88mm truck looks a potentially complicated built, lots of pieces I assume?

  6. Splendid toys as always Phil…

    I do like the look of the Vomag… it’s the sort of thing we would have converted out of Airfix kits in the past…

    All the best. Aly

    1. Thank you Jon. Looking forward to building and painting it, but I don't give much hope for its life expectancy on the table.
