Italeri 1/72 Scale Coastal Defence Bunkers.

Nice solid models that paint up really well.






These were made and painted by Carlos de Concha from the Tenerife Brazo de Nelson Wargames Club.

Aifrix Bedford QLD Conversion

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.

Altaya Die-Cast Elephant Tank


Thought I'd post a photo of one of the new Altaya ready-made-n-painted 1/72 German tanks in action on the wargame table.



This model above, the "Elefant" tank, was in newsagents at a special introductory offer of Eur 2.95.

And of course I bought three......... well, for that price who wouldn't ? Then, once the mist had cleared from my brain, I thought what on earth do I want three Elephants for.

Still, I suppose will use the three together in a game one day.
