We're near the end of this project, which is my first experience putting together a 1:72 plastic figure force for WWII. All of these figures come from the same boxed set, and were painted for TMP by Fernando Enterprises.

I learned a lesson on this project, and that is to store tiny parts in a small plastic container, so that they don't get away from me! While putting these together, I managed to lose one gun shield and one wheel! The tiny wheel disappeared from my workbench, and as for the gun shield, I dropped it and never found it again…

One of the gun shields slipped while the glue was drying, and I decided to leave it as-is rather than risk the paint job.

I've long had a fondness for Maxim machineguns. I believe their use goes back to the First World War, and now they're still being used in the Ukraine war!

I mounted the figures side-by-side, which means the assistant is just sort of waving the ammo at the gunner.

I've put LITKO FlexSteel on the base bottoms so they will stick to magnet-lined storage boxes. In this case, the FlexSteel is hanging loose. This is due to the fact I left the base bottom unprimed. In the future, I'll prime the bottoms of the bases to get better adhesion; but for now, a drop of superglue will take care of the problem.
