I finished these around last August but didn't get around to posting them. The Landy, Jackal and Coyote are OOB while the Warrior got a little extra detailing. They're just wargaming vehicles and I snuck in one of the pics showing them in action on the gaming table .....

I do have some more to do this year and have a bunch of extra PE and resin goodies for them.

cheers
Brent

Thanks Tom,

Things are a lot better so I'm back into it! Look fwd to seeing what you've been upto as well


Got a bunch of add-ons for the next wave of Herrick stuff. Replacement resin wheels, PE update sets and mg barrels plus plenty of stowage, a mix of Gasoline plus some of the excellent Paul Wade stuff. The Jackal/Coyote above are for a friend and OOB. The next lot are my own so I can spend a bit more time on them. I'm hoping to get a bunch more of the infantry done too .....

cheers

Very impressive work shown here Brent.
Although not a fan of the modern British wheels you have certainly shown what can be achieved in the smaller scales.
Please keep us posted of other projects.

Thanks Roger, I've got some American stuff to post soon and I'll definitely post any new projects.

Sean the range is great, wished they'd continue with it and release some other modern Brits, a Challenger would really make my day!

Hey Tom,

I got my resin wheels from Track-48 although Gasoline stock them too. On the Quarterkit/Gasoline website go directly to the kit section and select Airfix. For some reason the wheels and weapons kits are in with the kits.

http://www.phpshopxml.com/quakit.shop/CID/1d93876456bf81869f2d006f3b9cd6ac/function/itemSearchResultPageDisplay/shopSearchType/familySubFamilyCode/shopSearchData/PLAS01%7CAIRFIX/shopItemSearchLimit/0


I also picked up 3 or 4 stowage sets from Paul Wade, you can find him on the Track48 forum or a search for Airfix stowage on Ebay should bring them up. He makes suff for all the vehicles inc the quads and a nice range of diorama accessories too.

cheers
Brent

Wow, Brent, they look fantastic. Goes to show what can be done with these little 1/48 gems from Airfix. they could easily pass for models in a larger scale. the figs are brilliant as well!

Excellent!

Thanks for looking in and commenting gents (Steve and Sven), good to see these guys are still being looked at occasionally.

Recently I started work on the next wave of vehicles for myself this time as the Jackals and Landy were for a customer. Got a full set of PE and Resin goodies to add this time around too.

I'm also toying with the idea of painting the Jackals in a temperate scheme, either green or with green overspray al-la Batus for a "what-if" style European deployment. Not sure about this part of the builds yet though ....

cheers

Stunning job. Now to find the Airfix kits and figs now that Airfix will no longer make them. Who makes the Warrior?

Thanks Charlie, appreciate the comment. The Warrior is Airfix too unfortunately (great kit though too) and I'm hoping to pick up a couple more too for the stash while they're still occasionally available ....
