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.
