Another shot of the Half-track undercoated. The stowage really lifts this model I think. I will also be adding some crew/passengers and a machine gun to the ring arrangement. The figures will be from Kelly's Heroes and AB.
Above is an Airfix DUKW which will be receiving more of the Black Dog stowage plus some bits from Sgts Mess. The plan is to make some sandbags to go on the bonnet/front, out of either Milliput or Greenstuff. I have already changed the ring mounted machine gun for a spare from a Dragon Sherman kit- has lots more detail. The vehicle will be crewed by AB figures along with some possible passengers from HaT squeezed in next to the equipment in the back.
From my reading of "Assault Crossing" by Ken Ford, I know that the Wessex boys made use of DUKWs for transport on their way to the Seine.
Click on the above picture if you want a larger picture. These are some more Battlefield Commandos which are waiting for more paint- lots to do here.
In addition to these things I have also started putting together a farmhouse from Scalescenes, which is taking some doing- lots of bits to cut out and glue.
Cheers for now,
