That Puma's an Eaglemoss 1:43 diecast. I'm not sure whether it's a tad too big for the 1:48 lads? Nice looking model though.

I rather like the big chaps and your painting of the SS fellas is spot on.
Nice to see the Cecil Lewis book too :)

Trying to find piccies of people standing next to a Puma is not easy but it appears from these that it is slightly too large

The Puma (as are the 251s I've got for Jerry to taxi about in) is a tad too big for 1:48 scale, but seems to fit in with the 60s cartoony 'Commando Comics' look I'm after with this collection!

Herself's gobsmacked me wiv a good 'un today. I've been painting a couple of Waffen SS blokes toting Panzerfausts. She stuck her snek at wot I was doing and then said...

"They're them things that look like big toffee apples that you shoot at tanks."

When I picked myself up from the floor I asked how she knew such wondrous things...

"Sometimes when you're droning on, some of your crap registers, dear!"

Here's a thoroughly nasty piece of work in the shape of Obersturmbannführer August Von Richter, his vile underlings will not be far behind!

They get it right in the neck!

The Jerry bunch above had been in the stash for about 15 years before they got some paint splashed on 'em!  ::)
These big chaps have kind of grown on me, so I ordered a squad of 1:48 American Paratroopers from Scarab Miniatures. They arrived yesterday and the first one's nearly painted...

Currahee!!!

Any difference between painting 1/48 and 1/56?  In theory, I would assume not, but having personally experienced the differences in painting 1/76 and 1/56 you never know....

(ps: after several abortive attempts, the TFL lads now have your details, and the Freddie Gough stuff - hopefully they will be making contact with you soon!)
