I have dragged out my incomplete 25pdr kit with Quad Tractor and decided to finally finish it off. This a kit from Italeri which was originally produced by Esci, it's not bad but some bits could be left off for wargames purposes- like some of the fiddly bits underneath the Quad. I am not using the figures supplied with the kit which were designed for North Africa, having shorts on. For crew figures I will be using AB, I am placing four crew with the gun and three as a "loader team" with the limber (Battlegroup Rules allow you to expend extra points for a loader team to give improvements to fire rates I think). So, the three elements will be based up separately- gun, limber & Quad.
I have also been chopping and gluing some figures to go on a couple of commando bases. I have used resin beret heads from Dan Taylor Modelworks.
|Plastic conversion of Caesar British with Dan Taylor Resin beret head- looks like a good match.|
|Plastic conversion has Caesar Miniatures body, resin head and right arm from an Italeri |
British Para- the spare ammo box is taken from an Airfix British figure.
I have also nearly finished my first Universal Carrier with crew, just need to do the base and weathering- I'll show it to you when I've finished.
