Logistics Vehicles

I finished these back in August, and I have been meaning to post these pictures  for a while. The bulk of the models are either Airfix or Airfix reissues of ex JB Models kits.

I decided on a nice generic olive drab scheme for the vehicles, so I can use the for variety of forces. I am finding that the Airfix reissues of the JB Models kits are becoming harder to find - particularly the 105mm light gun kit.

Hiding in the back - a Corgi Land Rover

The view from above.
The idea is to create a pool of vehicles to represent various logistics elements on the tabletop. The next additions to the pool will hopefully be a few Unimog or MAN trucks - the S&S resin models will probably be what I use.


Land Rovers and trailers.

A different view of the Land Rovers.

I still have a couple of moderns logistics vehicles to assemble and paint, and a few diecast trucks to repaint in a common paint scheme, but finishing this lot has made a major contriution to my motor pool.

      Indeed - no such thing as too many trucks! Thanks for keeping an eye out for those guns!

  2. Very nice collection Brian. In light of all the 'rumours', my advice would be to grab any Airfix kits you might need whenever you see them...

    Cheers, Dave

    1. Thanks Dave!

      Grabbing those kits as I see them is probably the most prudent course of action!

      Cheers,

  3. One can never have too much kit... Which reminds me of a toy aeroplane I picked up somewhere. Waste not, want not, it has become a small reconnaissance aircraft in the service of Kiivar... You should see the camo...:-D I'll post something about this soon.

      Looking forward to seeing that paint job - the schemes you have been using on that project are cracking!
