  1. Aye up Steve Your most welcome squire. As regards the packs and webbing... you'd be ok going with a 'beigy' colour followed by a slightly darker wash i should think. I've also seen them with a bit of a green hue which i think was due to which colour 'blanco' was used to clean them up. The bed rolls would have been a similar colour but i usually paint them a different shade for a bit of contrast Regards. Steve
  2. Aye up Steve. Been watching this from the sidelines. Fantastic job all round! As for the rifles.... They would be Lee Enfield No4. Loads of images on google. Colour of fhe woodwork varied from almost yellow to a nice rich brown colour often with a hint of red! It all depended where they were made i believe (UK, Canada, US etc) In 72nd scale i reackon a nice mid brown shade would do it Regards. Steve

    Grump Britain replacement

    What really boils my p@*s (amongst many) are people who walk ahead of you into a shop or any other public building and then just stop in the doorway. MOVE FOR GAWDS SAKE! Pushchairs the size of a Land Rover Discovery.... why? Pull along suitcases. I REALLY hate them. They get pulled along without a care in the world or an awareness that they can actually trip people up. Annnnd relax...... Regards Steve

    Spot of the Day Part 2

    On the ring road in Leeds yesterday... A plate Red Ford Capri Laser went flying past me (i was doing 40). Was doing a fair bit of fish tailing too as he changed lanes. He either didn't know how to drive it or needed a paving slab in the boot! At Tong Garden Centre... a truly lovely Rover SD1 Vitesse in a deep red glinting in the sunshine. I wanted to walk back over the carpark for a look but minister for war and finance was having none of it! Regards Steve
