you do excellent work, I especially like the burned off paint on the gun tubes, perhaps add a little of the MiG pigments to get that flaked off look a little better, If you wanted to go that route. I like them as is though.

Again, Thank you all.
My project "Africa " is still going. I build few new models and convert next figures every day and can't STOP. :( But the Airfix and Matchbox classical models are so nice and easy to make.
The basic colous on.

and some (the first part) of the Australians ready for my brush :-)

Fantastic work you have done here.
What material are the bases, and what sizes do make them?
I am a bit jealous of this, hope to have the same skils some day :thumbup:
I can only say: more, more, more ;-)

Looking good, thankfully you didn't make the mistake of putting bright blue on the vickers as a camo color :thumbup:

Nice also the huge target on the roof of the Morris truck :mrgreen:
