Italeri 251 and Dragon prebuilt Tiger by Doug Iovinelli

This is a repainted Italeri 251 and Dragon prebuilt Tiger serving in the Tunisian campaign, early on.




The figures are MIlicast and Revell. The markings still need to be weathered a bit.

Flakpanzer V Coelian by Bram Corts

By Bram Corts (original article formerly on the miniaturezone.co.uk website)

The green Panther-conversion is a so-called flakpanzer V coelian






It's a what-if project because the Germans only made a mock-up of the vehicle. The turret is scratch-build and I used the Hasegawa Panther G with steelwheels as base.

SAS / LRDG Night Raiders

Some photos from two successive games comprising of night-attacks on a joint Italian-German airfield and fuel-dump.






yes... the Toyota fuel truck is a long way from home.








Nobody took notes on the turns, it was a very intense game, but to cut it short, the British won !!

LRDG conversions using Hongwell die-cast jeeps.





The Chevrolet was from the remains of a very old Matchbox unfinshed LRDG set that I recovered from the spares' box (painted green by me back in its day lol ).



A few books covered with towels and old sheets, add some scrub, sprinkle on some sand and add a few palm trees and there you have the table.
