DAK Panzers   1 comment

The DAK panzers have been one of those long term projects we all have.  I bought most of the models at least 6 years ago minus the PSC half tracks and Panzer IIIs.

Flames of War: 28th Canadian Armoured Regiment (The British Columbia Regiment)   Leave a comment

What can I say I got sidetracked again…. I had a number of the plastic Battlefront Shermans from the new Open Fire Box, a couple PSC tanks unassembled, and two extra BF resin fireflies.  So what do I do? like any good gamer I come up with a new regiment to paint.  I already have a Guards Armoured Troop.    Originally, the idea was to just paint the tanks as Canadian and then use my existing British assets to round out any lists.

Panzer Company: Panzer IV H 2nd SS Das Reich   Leave a comment

This is my second Panzer IV H company.  I felt compelled to pick up two boxes of Plastic Soldier Company Panzer IVs.  I supplemented the PSC with two Peter Pig Panzer IV.

A Collection of StuG III Gs   2 comments

I seem to have a strange addiction… I like to collect StuG III G models.  Luckily, this addiction has only manifested its self in 15mm plus one 1/48 scale model that I have not assembled yet.  Whats next after 1/48 scale?  will it ever end?  Perhaps my wife can accept the fact that I can sell the house and buy a real working one.  Not sure she would be happy because, I wont be able to drop the kids off at school in it!
