Italeri German Motorcycles and Sidecars




The big car in the background is a Hasegawa Mercedes that I rescued from a pile of old kits in a box and found a nice canvas roof from the spares box that fitted perfectly. After taking this photo, I've realised that the paint on one of the wheels has either chipped off, or I missed that bit when painting :-(

I changed a few heads to give them all helmets and I'll be using them for the 1940 campaign in France - The uniforms are all wrong, but no-one will notice too much (hopefully) painted in Field-Grey uniforms with Panzer Grey bikes and sidecars.

The figure with the binoculars has a helmet grafted on from the accessories that come with the Revell German 105mm Gun & Crew.

New Nappies - RobH

As a follow on to a skirmish scenario we gamed with some of our regular wargame buddies a couple of weeks ago (http://wargamestenerife.blogspot.com/2011/08/song-of-drums-and-shakos-escaramuzas.html), our mate Rob brought some very nice freshly painted 1/72 Italeri Napoleonic British he's just finished.

On the workbench - WW2 Russian Infantry Conversions

Last week I got a two new sets of the new "made in UK" Plastic Soldier Russian and German Infantry. The plastic is nice to work with, hard styrene which is glueable, and cuts easily and can easily be trimmed and sanded.

You can see some of the Russian infantry here with new heads, mixed with Esci and Revell figures for some Russian squads I'm putting together. With the smaller heads the poses mix well with the other Esci and Revell figures.


The heads etc., are just dry-tested / stuck on with a bit of blu-tac, I'll get around to pinning them sometime over the weekend.


Some of the brave figures who donated their heads to the Great Patriotic Cause....

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.

Italeri 1-72 scale ZIS Anti-Tank Gun and Crew



The ground is painted for Winter. In retrospect, the gunshield would look better painted with a whitewash.

The crew figures are a joy to paint, full of detail and convincing poses, albeit a little on the large side. They make Airfix 1/76 scale Russians look like scrawny juveniles.

A couple of 1/72 scale items built and painted by Juan Reyes, a member of our wargame club here in Tenerife "El Brazo de Nelson".
