Giants in Miniature

Wargames Illustrated do a range of 28mm figures of famous, and infamous, people and characters from history and from fiction. I did these recently for a client and they were a lot of fun to paint.

S&S Models KrAZ-255b and GAZ-66 trucks

Shaun at S&S Models asked me to paint up some of his trucks for him. These are good wargames models that have only a few parts and are very easy on the pocket. They painted up nicely.

A Rubicon Models Tiger 1 painted for Mike Andress for his annual hobby auction for charity. I completed this a couple of months back. It's a lovely model that goes together very nicely.

Team Yankee Huey Cobras and Mi-24 Hinds

Recently, I completed these for a client. They are 1/100th scale (15mm) and were among the first releases for the Team Yankee range from Battlefront. They went together well and were a joy to paint.They should look great on the gaming table.

Matilda II re-paint.

My WW2 Soviet Army needed a Lend Lease Matilda II tank for a rapidly approaching game. The original model (see last photo) was a 1/72 pre-built diecast (by Altaya, I think) and was not a bad representation of the real thing. It took about three hours of work, but that was spread out over three days as a couple of stages involved letting washes dry overnight. I think it turned out OK.

It is based on photos taken in Ukraine in 1944 that show vehicles that the Russians themselves had repainted, covering over the British Army paint scheme and markings.
