    THX Rod!

     

    Honestly… I can not tell either. It seems to me, this was rather an upgrade done by Hollywood (probably based on the M5 upgrade for the T-55) rather than a genuine one. Although it could still be real, since some units did not use all parts from the M upgrade kit and made their own modifications. All that being said… if you look at the Iraqi Enigma upgrade… that one had a counterweight to the rear of the turret. So maybe this was done with the same purpose.

    I liked the old airplane on legs look, but I have to admit, Prodos really managed to still retain that fighter plane feel, without making it look like a plane too much, so I really love it.

    Seeing the photos of your old walker brings so many memories. It is funny though… until I saw them I only remembered how bad the fit of the torso halves was back then (I had a 4mm gap) and forgot how awkward the legs were to assemble!

    Thanks! I think they have done a fine job on the whole Imperial range to bring the models into this century and still retain the old school look!

    Thanks Mike!

     

    To be honest… I have problems to define it myself and I have only ever seen one other person that paints somewhat like it. I am happy with it, but I am really happy if someone else likes it! 😉

    Thanks guys!

    yeah, i had a lot of chances to try ideas for snow… from modern Russians, over Vikings to my Warzone Bauhaus. I am really happy with this rendition, too!

    Yeah, it is strange! But I have to say, I loved them in ever edition. Not sure about these yet, since I feel they are too expensive, but time will tell!

    Hi Rod,

     

    or maybe he is simply weary to see a Tiger behind the next corner! 😛

     

    The Company B Stuart comes with a one piece turret, so I drilled and cut it out and build a new hatch from plasticard.

     

    THX,

    Mick,

    I am having trouble reading your PM. Would you be so kind… there is a contact field near the top of the right navbar on my blog. THX,

    P.S.: I am withdrawing from this discussion. Without meaning any offense Derek, but I think you are a victim of being too strict in your interpretation here. By your logic someone doing a diorama of Paris that contains an Eifel Tower does not depict Paris either. After all there are millions of buildings in Paris that do not look anything like a steel spire, only one. So by your logic, since it is not common it is wrong to depict it as Paris building.

    And to be honest… I hate it when someone says that I said something I did not. You have twisted my words twice to give me a motive I did not have. I see no reason in trying to argue when someone does that!

    Derek, is this not a bit harsh?

     

    For one, I went and got me these since I had too few buildings for Normandy, not because they do not look like they are from Normandy.

    And looking at your original post, you yourself said, that green shutters were not out of the norm for Normandy. Photos #71 from your selection actually shows one with green shutters (almost the same shade) and brownish doors (also the same shade as the doors on my houses). So we are talking one house with faded blue shutters. Can anyone prove that there were no houses with blue shutters in Normandy at all! That makes them all look wrong for Normandy?

    I was between a rock and a hard place on these. As you say, I knew most shutters and the like on houses in Normandy were and indeed still are very light coloured. But as Steve pointed out, this would have looked too bleak in those scale. So I took the artistic license, to go for different colours. But still it is a dark but non bright green on two of them and a faded blue on the other. Maybe this is some hamlet where the people were more extravagant! ;-!

    Thanks!

    the first time I edited the background out, I did it all in black, but that just looked too dark, so I have started to suss black and medium grey. Looks good with any setting.

    Well it is good to see, we all share the same problems!

    No worries Paul… I was just pulling your leg!

     

    Thanks Quidveritas! I think you are right that most forward observer teams operated with field telephones. But I have seen pictures of teams with radios, too. No matter what… A radio looks more impressive than a telephone anyway! 😉

    @Paul
    … Are you interested in my WWI minis that I bought for that very reason and never get around to painting! 😛

    Thank you Drang.

     

    I got them from Prodos Games, or rather their Kickstarter. The bodies are the basic ranged combat version and the close combat arms are from the Kickstarter exclusive  add-on pack for Bauhaus. That being said, they have already revised the model and it now comes with the CC arms included.
