A set of "Newsteam" figures I have on the workbench at the moment.
The figures are Hasegawa hard plastic US Airforce Ground Crew with some simple modifications and an Esci/Italeri NATO Ground Crew figure.
The war-weary reporter's van in the background is a Made-in-China toy.
Looking at the photo now, I think I went a bit over the top with the weathering, it's filthy dirty - and those toy-like wheels will probably need replacing too..........

Pictures from some WWII Pacific/Jungle games with members of the Brazo de Nelson wargame group.
The 47mm AT gun was made by Alejadro – he used the wheels off a HaT German 37mm gun, and built the gun-shield from scratch. The gun-crew are conversions of HaT German AT figures by Carlos de la Concha.
