Decals are from Butler 3D. really great value

they do a couple of sizes 15mm and 1/72. I got both to try, they 15mm are a better fit for these tanks!

The vehicles are 20mm scale and from various manufacturer PIII is diecast, Stug and one PII are SHQ, one PII is Esci, the PI are from Frontline gaming & Ready to Roll models(I think)

I really like how your painting blends everything together so that the differences between the various manufacturers don't stand out. Ready to Roll stuff are excellent, but did you saw off their original bases or what?

I got them from ebay like that, I think the previous owner had cut the bases off!

They are a collection of Esci, Early War Miniatures, SHQ and 3D prints, all from my rather large stowage bits box!
