Czech Legion 1.

A 75mm naval gun mounted into a railway wagon. The wagon is a MDF kit from Sarissa Precission. It has been built "inside out" so the timber lines the inside of the wagon and the smooth side is on the outside to represent steel. Some added rivets go further to suggest metal sides. The gun is a scratchbuild and the figures come from Copplestone and Brigade Games. There will be more of this sort of thing to come in the future.

Here is the inspiration.

Crossley 1920s Radio Truck.

I love this "bedstead" transmitter! A simple conversion from a Matchbox vehicle. Thanks to Rodger for the inspiration!

Here is a real one.

The Beast of Bukhara.

Most tyrants that I know (and I've known a few in my time) tend to errect huge statues to express their power and reflect the love that the people have for their glorious leader. Some build huge palaces and vast public squares. Not so the Beast of Bukhara. He is a modest tyrant. He is satisfied by distributing his diminutive likeness around the globe. Here is The Beast as sculpted by Messers Perry. Adrian does look like this! It is uncanny.

Scratchbuilt WW1 "Krupp" 150mm gun.

I found some plans online for Krupp 150mm K16. These were rescaled to 1/56 giving a gun barrel of 11.5cm in length. I then used said plans to scratch up something that looks like a big German gun. With the shield and longer trail it makes the British 6 inch gun,  featured earlier, look a bit malnourished! I am rather pleased with the wheels. Boom!

The Big Gun is painted.

So... the painting Mojo still needs to turn itself back on when I look at the little metal men. I painted up the big converted 6 inch gun and then, as if by magic, the Mojo said "Righto, lad, time to get the flesh done on the next pack of those Perry WW2 Yeomanry." I have got the big guns out of my system. The finer brushes now call.

To give an indication of the size of this beast, a GWM brass hat up from Brigade has photobombed the images.
