BRITISH ENGINEERS 28mm

British Engineers 28 mm

Part 1

On completing the assemble of my Brit Platoon, I had a number of spare figures. Instead of forking out more money to buy some Engineers, I decided to use these figures and after some successful plastic surgery to wrist, arms, legs and head transplant I manged to construct my Engineers.

SHERMAN TANK 28mm

   PART 1


I have started building up my Chain of Command Support List for my British Infantry. I was about to purchase 1 x Sherman + 1 x Sherman Firefly from Warlords for AUD $100 when I stumbled onto the Italeri 1/56 M4 Sherman kit for AUD $25, so I bought 4 Shermans. Great bargain as I get a Troop of Shermans.
I have converted one into a Firefly and modified the others to bring them up to British standards and I am happy with the results so far.


Here is the Sherman completed as per kit supplied.


Same Sherman after leaving the work shop.



Here is the Firefly conversion the main gun was carved from left over plastic sprue from a Rubicon model as the plastic is more rigid.

CHAIN OF COMMAND PATROL MARKER


I just finished my first Patrol markers I didn't want perfect spotless markers so I made them look "battle harden", I have  included instructions on how I made them and thanks to fellow blogger Agentbalzac who suggested that I included another set of icons with the label "LOCKED" on the underside of the chip to indicate its status when locked down.

IABSM BLINDS

After some input from the guys on 'Too Fat Lardies Forum' I used 'Paint' on my PC to construct some Blinds.

  • Where he describes how he made his excellent clear Blinds. I was very impressed by them and constructed my own clear Blinds but in the Oval shape.I tried following James instructions and used the clear Transparency Sheets for Plain Paper copiers but was not happy with results (don't have a laser printer) so I just used:
  • black permanent marker to trace the shape of the Blinds I had already made.
  • cut out the shape.
  • I printed up some letters and insignia's,can be viewed: DOWNLOAD LINK:
  • cut them out.
  • used a small amount of paper glue to hold the letters and insignias onto the Transparent Blind.
  • laminated them and cut them out.
  • note that you can use any type of clear sheeting that you get your hands on for this method.
My original Axis Blind and the Transparent Blind below:




                                  My original Allies Blind and the Transparent Blind below:



I am happy with the results and the fact that the terrain under the Blind is visible is a big plus.
"Now onto the next IABSM project"
