Nostalgia- Airfix US Airborne & Sherman
As I'm not quite ready with my next group of British infantry I thought I would post some pics of some stuff I had painted previously. These are Airfix US Airborne and an Airfix Sherman both in 1/72 (or 1/76) which I painted for my son as part of his collection. I had this set myself as a lad, in fact I'm pretty sure I had all of the Airfix WW2 sets in 1/72, plus a heap of Matchbox figures- alas somewhere along the line I got rid of them as well as a bunch of tanks and planes- now I find myself buying this sort of stuff again. The US Airborne were one of Airfix's better sculpts, and even now are fun to paint with nice detail. I have painted up quite a few plastic figures over the years for my son and may show some more pictures of them at a later date. Enjoy.
