Its an Alby resin cast. Sadly they seem long OOP now, a huge shame as they were exceptional models.

Apparently you can still order directly, according to the following link... I could be mistaken, but think the posts are from this year?:

Well, I think that it's easier to find the Alby Kits today than 20 years ago....
You can find his production on Ebay (direct sales) just by writing in the "search area" something like "1/72 Alby"....
All the items sold by "Minimili" or by  "Kitenstock" (which are the two "alias" for Alain Laffargue...) are sold directly by Alby.
Of course, all his items are not on Ebay, but you can also "contact the saler" to ask him if the item you want is available, now, soon or unfortunatly never again...
as you can too send him an E-mail....
the main problem is that he really doesn't like paypal ( too much indelicate buyers I suppose...) and so, you have to make a bank transfer....

Really amazing work as usual!  :-* 8) :-*

Is that a PSC Horch model (first model on the right)? Mine are somewhere in a metal drawer, but did you notice a small “hole” on the floor of the model? Or did I make an error assembling the kit?

Also, was the “elongated truck carrying the 88” (I forget the exact domination, sorry) produced in “large” quantities?

Anyhow, genuinely nice models and figures as usual. I like looking at the stuff you put out on LAF.

Cheers! 8)

The Steyr is the PSC one... and the ambulance is a conversion of one. Dont remember a hole in the floor... where abouts as I have another waiting to be painted so will check.

The Selbstfahrlafette auf Fahrgestell VOMAG 7 OR 660 mit 8,8cm Flak had around 24 ordered but I think only 20 built, though some got the ballistic director fitted rather than the gun or a command fit-out. Later in the war they were refitted with the gunshields to add better crew protection.

Sent some samples by PSC of Leon from Adlers Waffen-SS in M44 Erbsenmuster. These are Ultracast rather than metal and show just how insane the detail is that Leon can sculpt!

Really nice figures and amazing painting as usual!  :-* 8) :-*

Is that a new product that PSC will bring out?

Also, it’s a little off topic but do you have Britannia figures in your 20mm collection and if so, do you like them, and do they mix well with other manufacturers?

Cheers!

Yes... PSC are due to release these as a 'plastic' version of the ones Adler sell in metal.

Good few moons ago all my collection was pretty much all Britannia. For a while I used to paint some of the adverts for Dave Howitt to go in Wargames Illustrated. However once you start adding other makes, few sit well with Britannia, so after Dave died and the business was sold, I ended up selling off a few bits to fund some home repairs and, as the quality of the Britannia castings had dropped at the time I replaced them with AB.

That led to a general sell off of everything and a complete restart of 20mm. In fact I'd say in the last 15 years I've probably sold off almost everything two or three times over as painting has improved!

So... although I do love Britannia, for me they only work among themselves.

The gallery above and the preceding pictures are very lovely!  :D

I always like to come back to this thread and have a look at them when I don't feel up to painting stuff.

Thank you for sharing the pictures!
