Underfire miniatures WWII Polish Westerplatte Troops 1/72.

Hello all,

These are from the great under fire miniatures new Polish range. They centre around The battle of Westerplatte, a battle that I was unaware of till I saw these figures.
The first attempt at painting them was not that successful, they ended up looking more like Russians than anything. Trying to find pictures of WWII Polish naval uniforms on the net is a nightmare, trying to find colour pictures even harder! So please bare with me on the choice of colours.

Having now caught up at work I will no longer be working six days a week and will have a lot more time to reply to comments and other bloggers works of art. I have had a bit of a wobble with the standard of work lately and hope to get back in the groove (YEAH BABY,YEAH!).

Italeri WWII German Sd.Kfz. 232 6 Rad 1/72.

Hello all,

I am alive!!!!!! I have been working my arse off lately and holidaying with the clan West.I have also been working on the odd model or two. This German radio car has a hell of a name on it, so I will refer to it has "the car" to safe time and my keyboard.
The carpet monster was well fed on this build so if the side lamps are missing that is were they ended up. I should have used loctite on them but forgot and that is what happens.
The build other that and the antenna section flew together.The antenna bit was a nightmare to build especially if you have had a few beers, I should leave models alone after I have had a couple.
I tried to hand paint it but it looked crap, so out came the airbrush and saved the day or £8.The MiG weathering pigment gave a good used look to it and that's about it.
