Hi All,

Here's some resin models recently finished, the two on the left needed for a game this week.

The turretless Recce/Command Stuarts had their turret rings drilled out, and Minifig 10mm crews glued in, along with spare-parts 30 cal. MGs from other kits attached.

The Stuart III (with the turret) is modeled on a color drawing in an Osprey book, of Lt. Gen. Freyberg's personal HQ tank of the New Zealand 2nd Division, with a fake 37mm gun mounted to open up more interior room (not that you can tell the tiny model's barrel isn't the real thing). ;) I should put some aerials/flags on it….if time permits but need to work on hills atm.

These 1/144th scale kits were bought off of ebay (3D resin Prints I suspect, but they didn't seem to have any print lines nice). The modified Recce Stuart on the right was from a different source than the other two. It's always a treat to get the base colors painted on, followed by a thin black wash, before the real details start to pop through.

Excellent painting once again! Nice looking models and stowage too. Hey enjoy your game and kick some ass. :D

:D Ed, I appreciate that!

(this will be a scenario I'm co-judging [not playing in], which I hope the guys will enjoy)

The only thing I try to assure to them is it'll look pretty good beyond that I give no guarantees. ;)

It is amazing what experts in 3D printing can now achieve. I got some Napoleonic lancer figures in 1/72 and cannot believe the quality of detail. They beat metal any day, are far cheaper, easier to cut into or file down, take better to gluing and offer a nice smooth surface, rather than the pitting of some metals.

A very late convert, but now convinced. Like Paul on the road to Damascus

DH, great comments!

I just ventured over to the Napoleonics board, to see if you had posted something related to this there……oh yes you have!
