I wanted to share some pictures of two new toys the postman brought direct from China a couple of weeks ago.
They're sturdy little models that go together quickly.
I found that the little steel pins that are used as axles for the wheels are too long.
Fortunately I was able to cut them down with some strong cutters.
Next to an Academy 1/72 scale M35 Truck (on the right). They size up ok
The box-art is little surreal. Apart from being a mirror image of the truck (and now a right-hand drive model), it seems to be parked in the smouldering ruins of some old central European city.
A nice model that will most likely find its way into some modern skirmish games.
You can see some more information about this kit on Ey's excellent "1/72 Multiverse" blog on the following link :

These are figures for the first scenario in our Ardennes campaign, "Retreat Through The Mons Pocket" from the Osprey Bolt Action Battle of the Bulge campaign book,
This scenario involves Belgium partisans and retreating Germans with a truckload of looted art.
The Belgium partisan figures are a mixture of Orion, Caesar, Esci, Italeri and Pegasus.
There are a couple of simple conversions, the guy with the Panzerschreck is a Caesar figure who's had his Sten-Gun replaced and the second and third figures from the right with greatcoats are Italeri Germans with new heads.
Hope you like the pictures and any input or suggestions are always appreciated.
