I finally finished off my armored cars for the Afrika Korps. Models by Paper Tiger Armaments.


Full post here.


Working on the motor cycle company now. A collection of Revelle, Italeri and Zvezda as well as a couple of kubelwagion card models.

John, those look fantastic, love the sdkfz.222. What rules you using for them?

They look great, if you are looking for rules, rapid fire are a good set of WWII rules

They are a good set which also answers PAR's question. grin

Josh, I am building up forces to be used with the early desert war supplement for Rapid Fire. The could be used with Lionel Tarr's modern wargame too, which I am also planning on giving a go sometime.

How stabil are they?

Very stable. Mine are all printed on 65 lbs paper. The vehicles are quite light. I don't think there is a problem with them being toppled or anything like that. They are quite sturdy for paper. I have some tanks that have been jostled around near my computer stand that are completely undamaged. Occasionally they even get dropped on the floor. You can add some weight to them with a piece of sculpy or similar type of clay inside the hull.
