the other guy is in a box somewhere along with the guy getting shot

One of my first conversions was to slice off the Para's helmets,
and replace them with blobs of Miliput as Berets.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery...

Hello,

 a very nice projekt & very nice painted minis.
My beliving for this special figure is, he should be part of the mortar team. Signaling ready to fire, watching his mortar. Usefull for many gun teams.

 Yours,   Sebastian

I'm rambling on about 'yesteryear' again, so might be forgiven for a tad of forgetfulness?
When I finished the German's infamous all rounder I completely forgot it came with wheels, an oversight that's now been rectified!

Mac, one more vehicle to go to actually FINISH a project!!!
Believe it or not the model shop we used to go to in the 60s is still open and run by the same family. When we can travel it'll be to Sheffield to see the Grandkids, at the same time I'll buy the final model of the 'Yesteryear Project' here...
