1/72 Scale Resin Printed WW1 Rolls-Royce Armoured Car.

A great little 1/72 scale printed resin model, given to me by a wargaming buddy, Carlos. 

The turret is fixed unfortunately, but not a big problem.  It looks the part and now we need to get around to getting it onto the wargame table.  

Painted with Vallejo Khaki Grey, added a British roundel off some old aircraft kit I had in the spares box, weathered with a wash, and finally dusted with some crushed pastels.

Not too sure about the scratches to be honest. I think I went a bit over the top - but it's done now, but maybe I'll try and soften them a little with some more dusted pastels.

Airfix WW1 French Infantry In Khaki

Airfix / HaT Industrie WW1 French Infantry painted in khaki to represent WW2 troops.

The set itself (not these actual figures though) was one of the first sets of 20mm figures I had as a kid at primary school - and that was a long time ago now.

I always thought that the guy with the carrier pigeon looked like he was holding a half-eaten sandwich that he'd just taken out of his hamper.

The figures have a lot of useful poses, it's a pity about the rifles as they are very flimsy and thin without any real detail, but they still have a place for me on the wargame table.

HaT WWI British Artillery Crew

A quick post of some HaT WW1 British artillery crewmen that have just been finished.

Also added a comparison picture with some Emhar figures and an old Airfix 13pdr Gun from the RHA set.
