M24 Chaffee

This little beauty was in the stash that Paul sent me. A lot of nations used this AFV, and nearly 5000 were built

I unbuttoned it, added a crew figure and a MG 

A lick of paint and a couple of decals and it's tabletop ready

I think this model is by Matchbox Hasegawa (thanks Paul)

I'll use this more with my Korean War collection, a very welcome inclusion thanks mate :)

New Guns

These French 25mm guns arrived with my package from Paul. They are scratch builds by the talented Gerard Davey 

Slight touch up to the paintwork 

I now have four of these guns, the other two are metals by Early War Miniatures, see the link here

Progress - wooden buildings

My first dabble with wooden buildings

Added a floor to this one so as to make it more functional for CD3

This is another one of an Asian style

Basic construction, went together in about ten minutes. Once I've finished filling the major gaps and other holes in the framework it will be ready for a paint job.
