Trumpeter Famo Halftrack





And a snap of the vehicle next to an Airfix Luftwaffe mechanic so you get an idea of the size.

Italeri Jagdpanzer IV SdKfz.162

Italeri, apart from steadily re-issuing the old Esci 1/72 range of kits, has also embarked on producing their own new line of quality 20mm kits too, such as the Jagdpanzer IV below which was built and painted by Carlos de la Concha from the Brazo de Nelson wargame group.

Nebelwerfer Scratch-Build – Juan Reyes

By Juan Reyes - scratch-built Nebelwerfer

Our gaming group had a list of things we needed to build for some of the forthcoming games we had planned in the Disposable Heroes Arnhem campaign, one of those being a Nebelwerfer.

The old Esci kit still hasn't yet been re-released by Italeri and the expensive prices on Ebay for the old Esci kit made it a no-no, and resin or lead alternatives aren't really our thing, but Juan said he'd take care of it.





The rocket-tubes on the Nebelwerfer are made out of sprue, and the split-trail carriage, and wheel assembly are from the HaT Industrie German Pak-36 37mm Anti-Tank Gun.

The Steyr 1500A in the background is also another of Carlos de la Concha's Altaya-Repaints.

Italeri Sd.Kfz 234/3 "Stummel"

Another of the new Italeri kits, an Sdk.Kfz 234/3 built and painted by Carlos de la Concha from the Brazo de Nelson wargame group.

Hasegawa Isuzu Fuel Truck

Another kit for another wargame project, this time a 1/72 scale Japanese Isuzu Fuel Truck, built and painted by Carlos de la Concha from the Brazo de Nelson wargame club.

Circus Maximus in 1/72 Scale


Iván Cáceres, another of my regular wargame opponents (he thrashed me in a game on Saturday just gone by the way, damn him), is also an avid 1/72 scale fan.

He's been working on updating the old board-game "Circus Máximus" into a version using miniatures.

The miniatures were painted by Iván and also by Carlos de la Concha.

The new "board" needs a centre-structure and some statues, spectators etc., so more photos to follow sometime in the near future when the table's finished.

Pegasus 1/72 scale WWII Russian Naval Infantry

A picture of some the the superb new Pegasus 20mm scale WW2 Soviet sailors.

These were painted by a friend and fellow gamer, Carlos de la Concha, and were used in one of our wargaming club's recent Stalingrad type wargames.

Work in Progress - Matchbox M16 Half-Track

A couple of 1/76 scale M16 Half-tracks (w/50cal quad) under construction. This is the Matchbox-Revell re-release.

The tracks are far too fragile though. I'll have to try and find an alternative as these broke as soon as I tried to get them over the rear roller assembly.

Apart from the problem with the dodgy tracks, the kit looks as sharp in detail and as easy to put together as it ever was.

Altaya Die-Cast Repaints



Some more of the new Altaya die-cast tanks recently out on the market here in newsagents in Spain.





Ideal for wargamers. Not really worth building models when these are on sale for just 10.95 Euros apiece.

Some photos below of of Altaya die-casts repainted by fellow wargamer Carlos de la Concha. The figures inside that repainted "Rommel Chariot" are two old Matchbox figures.

Italeri DAK



Some pictures of figures from the new Italeri set, painted by Carlos de la Concha.

Very nice new additions to our club's WWII Afrika Korp wargame forces






More Vikings

MORE Vikings !

These superb figures here were painted by my old mate, Carlos de Concha.


A few weeks back we decided that between various members of our club we could each paint up a few Vikings for some skirmish scenarios.

We split up a set of Zvezda figures between five regular players and as there are going to be various painting styles, just one of us would flock the bases when we all have the figures painted so they all blend in together on the table.

Vikings

Here come the Vikings !

Zvezda figures, (and a viking on horseback conversion), all superbly painted by fellow gamer (and one of my regular wargame "enemies") Juan Reyes for our wargame club's "Medieval Project" .

Aifrix Bedford QLD Conversion by Doug Iovinelli



Second installment of some more really nice conversions by Doug Iovinell from San Diego. As per the boats in the previous post, I meant to put these on the main website some time back, but they got misplaced on my old computer and I only recently dug them out again (sorry about the long delay Doug).

"I have been slowly converting the Airfix Bedford, two months, into the QLD. The pictures should explain most of it. I used cardboard and a paper napkin for the tarpaulin. The back end is completely scratch built. It was fun painting it too. I have not yet decided what unit markings I shall paint.
