Hi guys

This is the organising part of a 1/72 WWII winter US commission, figures used are TQD (metal), Italeri US winter (sand), Italeri US (green), PSC US heavy weapons (grey), a couple of Italeri US Paras and a couple of Italeri Brits.
I have done some basic pose and head conversions to minimise the same poses, I will further modify them by winterising the none winter troops.
The force is for chain of command and will be the opposing force for these Winter Germans

Also making a 5 man bailed tank crew, just for the fun of it.
The TQD figures are a little larger than the plastics, however not overly so, and they all mix together pretty well, and I will be bulking the plastics out a bit when I winterise them.
Should get these on the painting desk in a week or so, all comments welcome.

great job on those !! did you replace the 50 cal machine gun on the PSC kits? looks more in scale than the original from the picture – wondering where to get proper 50 cal machine guns to replace mine!

Yeah, the 50 cal is from a Dragon sherman kit I had spare, I have it mounted on the 30 cal tripod in the pic, but will probably use an Italeri 30 cal tripod, which has skinnier legs, I will take close up pics once all my green stuff work is done.
