Cowgirl Sophie

Trying to finish up this mini. The gold was really the worst part, now I just have to complete the skin, black parts and of course the local wildlife...

Birthday gift - finished

My present for my dad is done:

Otter Reconnaissance Car

I actually did research so the markings are at least plausibly accurate. Trivia: the "American" air-recognition star was used by all Allied vehicles to prevent friendly fire incidents from aircraft. Cheeky Canadians usually painted theirs on crooked.

And a "Jerry":

KFZ-15 troop car

Painted for my brother's army. Unit markings and finishing the base are up to him.

Birthday Gift

My dad, old soldier that he is, is quite interested in Canadian military history. I thought that while I'm bitten by the little WW2 soldiers bug I could paint him up something. I decided on the Flames of War "Otter" - a scout car made in Oshawa, Ontario and used by several Allied nations including Canadian troops. Right out of the box it is quite plain so I decided to add some extra detail to make it more realistic.

... another project started, and none finished to show for it...
