Guns, Guns, Guns?

 First up a Roden Models SdKfz 233 aka "Stummel" an eight wheeled armoured car sporting a 75mmL24 gun, the crew are the ever fine AB Figures.




Secondly a Revell Marder III Ausf. M, the last in the Marder series of Panzerjaeger using a modified 38T mounting a 75mmL46 anti-tank gun, crew again from AB.



Last but not least going back to the previous century a French Model 1829 Valee 120mm mountain howitzer for the Brazilian forces for my Triple Alliance project, from Perry Miniatures.


With a fair wind I will be off to GHQ tomorrow for some Very British Civil War madness and mayhem.

TTFN and KBO

  7. Nice new armor units, classy camo. Quite a change of pace but also well done is the Brazilian battery.

  9. Superb work there Phil, both on the AFV's and the ever excellent AB Figures. The artillery crew is not too shabby either!

  14. Lovely toys Phil…
    I remember scratch building a Marder III…
    It certainly didn’t look as good as that kit…

    All the best. Aly

    1. Thank you Aly. I am sure your build look very fine and less fiddly to build, this kit has ridiculously small bits.

  15. A nice selection of delightfulness on show there Phil. A particularly nice "sag" on the Marder's tracks.

    1. Thank you Jon. The tracks are like the old vinyl ones but are in a very bendy plastic, although it will snap if bent to much.
