WW2 - A US Armored recon force.


Here are the models from a recent commission, painted up for a client in Viginia. He sent me the models, a mix of Battlefront and Plastic Soldier Company models. It was the first time I'd used the PSC kits, and they are certainly crisp, with a versatile range of parts.

Above: A mix of PSC early- and mid-production Stuarts.


Above: Five PSC late-production Stuarts (with nifty hedge-cutter attachments).


Above: A unit of Battlefront Priests, with their command staff and observers. The Sherman OP is from PSC.


Above: Four M36 Tank Destroyers from Battlefront.


Above: Battlefront Jeeps - four with .50cal AA, and three with 60mm mortars.


Above: Battlefront M8 Greyhound armored cars and M28 Utility vehicles.

It was quite interesting to put the PSC kits together. While things like the Stuarts turrets had nine individual parts (the bodies were at least another nine), and that meant a LOT of mold line trimming, they were a great fit and looked great once assembled.

I hope you like them.

Back to the 40K/30K soon ; )

Cheers
Dave
