A while back I bought some Plastic Soldier Company Universal Carriers in 1/72- and very nice they are too. PSC sent me an extra sprue because I pre-ordered (some time last year), so I still have three left to build. I'm not known for speed or mass-production so what I'm presenting is my first PSC carrier. I have used crew from AB Miniatures for variety, and because they look cool. I have added a metal rifle and Bren Gun from Sgts Mess and a resin kit bag from Black Dog. The decals are a mixture of stuff from the spares box and Dom's Decals. They have the markings for my usual 43rd Wessex Division chaps. Some of the beret heads from the kit have already been donated to my commando conversions, and the other PSC figures will no doubt see service in some other vehicle.
Enjoy the pictures:
Work in Progress
I have been doing a bit more on my British 25pdr, Morris Quad and crews. I have nearly finished the crew and loader team- just need to paint the rear end of the seated gunner bloke, as he was stuck to the blu-tack. Finished painting the gun, limber and Quad apart from some extra weathering during the basing stage and after any decals are applied. I have stuck the crew onto thin pieces of plasticard, as I find this helps in the painting and basing stages.
|Lightened up the panels & added a bit of weathering- needs decals next.|
Hopefully my next post will be the finished articles :)
