Cardboard Walls

Just a quick idea i had from a Wargames illustrated on Making Pirate Boats and Ships


The planking It is the carboard ala biscuit and Breakfast cereal and some scissors and just paper glue


And a run of brown toned themed paint, with the black felt tip (Fine Tip Pen) to do Nail holes and bring up the Planking......

I will do some in a Blog of how to do

and read Wargames illustrated

Work on 1/300 Pacfed Commision

Work on some Futuristic 1/300 Pacfed Grav Vechiles and Infantry
 They have been primed and are all in Cobalt Blue ready for the cloud (white) Camo and detailing

And the Infantry which will be in my painting figures blog......

M10 Achilles M16 from Mr Stelling

Some shots my father has taken and am using to show but basically to show the M16 and M16B as was having a problem with thinking that the museums simply placed a Quad mount in a M3 half track.
But it was an actual field modification to probably up the number of AA units
even if as a multiple ground firing unit as most Flak and such were used as well...

                                     M10 Achilles

                                                                            M16 S.P.A.A


?M16B (which is an M16 with the M55 trailer mounted quad M45C as a field modification)

Another shot of the M10 Achilles
 
Pak 36 with example of the Stielgranate 41 from 1943 to up the Ante


And a 7.5cm Pak 40

Platoon 20

Just Scanned some old (20 years back) Platoon 20 Catologue Pages














 
It is about the whole range as there was nothing new after this
They are still available but no longer in single form (8 packs and... etc)

So am doing an Individual listing and will do the a missing Blog as most or all the vechiles are no longer available and they did an M48 for the Nam as well with variated Gun Barrel

And all the civilians for Vietnam are gone as well as the Schuma and others

Trying at least to get the Civilians back as they are usable all Asia etc 
esp with all the 20mm 'Pacific' going on

cheers Karcuss

will be doing some Battlefield Miniatures stuff soon as all the Shot moulds

Cheap 6mm Trenches

A quick Project from the Yahoo 6mm Group discussion idea:

 
Nice bit of scrap card but the firmer the better and even plastic coated sided 
Then pencil out with ruler the basic side of each piece
And cut out well easier with a pair of scissors

Low relief Trenches and such

Just draw out in pencil what you wish your trench (foxhole, dugout etc) in pencil to look like
 
then seems to be better to just paint in browns or whatever colour suites the actual "dug" part  
The Ingredients to mix up for like sand and PVA glue Acrylic paint in your desired colour (not necessary But helps later on)
 
So mix up paint PVA and some warm water in 1/3 each less is better of Water but can add can't remove ant of the mix
In the mixing bowl of some old dip (well no Dip, and not, old as we ate it!!!) 
Just keep mixing it up with stirer or old brush 
To make a nice paste up not to runny not to thick but if thick can add a little water but this is more about it all soaking into the sand, and the colour will coat and blend in
 
Then apply to outside or ground area around the trench



Was to sprinkle sand on but better to dump snad and when dry or drier as in adhered, to shake of upside down Just tapping lightly with finger on bottom of base, over Newspaper or back into the stock.

 
So it will end up something like this
 
then go full hog and do sixty at once


 
So easy when you get the hang of things
 
And let left dry which is usually quite quick if you have the mixture right!
 
Then adding another layer by repeating the process
 
Then keep on building it up ready for trees logs grassing etc
 
"Keep your soviet Armour off the grass! Please" 
So there is a bear in there!

 
Just a Visual on how they will work in 6mm
 
Rommel has to inspect things

 
Ready for more work, but again that is another story for another day
These took no time at all, So can be built up etc and added to, they will also be castable.
So adding damage, boxes, little doors, debries etc.....

cheers Karcuss
