Hi Rui and Bruce, Thanks for the feedback. I'm being defeated by technology at the moment. As soon as I do there will be more to follow.

Thanks for those generous comments EnsignExpendabl and Bruce. For the rifles I use a basecoat of AK3033 light sand (I find it better than the wood base AK779 from their wood set). Then I use the two wood grain paints from that set as a wash rather tha trying to achieve a solid colour - AK780 then AK781. The metal work is any satin black followed by a drybrush of a steel oil-colour. Needless to say the straps on the Lee Enfields and the PIAT are good-old Tamiya tape. Hope that helps and appreciate the feedback. Best wishes, Nick

Hi James. Really appreciate that. I suspect its going to be one of those projects that never gets completed... getting serious mission creep.

Mission creep or not, my jaw dropped when my eye roamed across your amazing work. Superb 👍🙂
