Long range desert group patrol at rest 1/72, WIP.
After being ill all week and doing bloody overtime all week it has just about knackered me out!
So finding any time to paint has been a winner.
I am planning to do a dio with two of the Matchbox/Revell LRDG sets.I have to get my hands on another set but I am sure that that will not be to much of a problem.
You can make two different dio's with the sets, one SAS and the other LRDG.This will be a patrol lying up during the day, resting.
A few extra Matchbox desert rats could bulk out this dio and there is one bloke in that set screaming out to added to the SAS jeeps.
The figures are from Matador models, yes I had never heard of them either.I saw there stand at the annual Poole vikings model show and had nose through there stuff and walk away with a load of bits and pieces.
I made the braid from a very thinly rolled bit of sculpt,then I scored around the head dress with a piece of wire.The braid was placed in the groove and scored again with a blade.
