Excellent!

Great pair, nice grubby, dusty, well used finish along with a base and figures,  what's not to like?

 

Super modelling, almost tempting me to build a Chieftain....

Excellent - an everyday scene that would be at home in the Sennelager Training Area.

Thanks Richard, glad it's captured it ok.

Excellent work and I love the dusty finish 👍

Cheers Stuart, several people in the build log mentioned how dusty it got at Sennelager which I wanted to replicate.

Thanks Daryl, I do like the Chieftain! Might do another, maybe the 1/72 version.

Hi Nick,

Excellent pair of vehicles, I love the subtle wear and detail on the APC, along with the very accurate figures, which on their simple but effective base look great. I would love to add a figure at least in my "Chaffie", because at least I managed to make a base...😅

Cheers and TC

Francis.👍

Excellent work, apart from the glaring omission - where's the crates of beer? Herforder handbags usually lined the floor of the 432, unless this near endex and they had run out. Spookily I left Sennelager this very morning to head back to UK.

Sorry for the late response, for once not work related but attendance at the Belgium GP, great weekend!

Very nice, I particularly like the DPM on the 432 crew, looks very realistic. Good effort!

Thanks Phil

Nick - that is absolutely first rate - the figures and base really set the vehicles off

Nice One B)

You've done an excellent job on both models, and together, they look even better. Nice work.

Thanks Bill, you're not the first person to mention the handbags, we'll call it Endex!

Thanks Francis, kept the base simple so as not to distract from the vehicles, glad you like it.

 

Cheers
