Yep,  likewise.  The old school abilities with plastic card and green stuff  turning the prints into very good little models, gaming or otherwise.
A 15mm Laffly S35 T would be a handy addition,  but I don't believe anyone's got round to one yet.
No, havenít come across an S35t unfortunately, only the S45, I have been thinking about converting some S45s to S35ts though.

 Hi guys

1/72 Laffly S15 TCC finished, added some detail to the breach and some Hat crew figures.

Next I was going to start on the printed 1897 75mm gun, but comparing it to the Hat offering I have decided to go with the later, the Hat model is soft plastic, but the gun shield is much better detailed, and you get the later wheels (enough for 2 guns) in the Hat artillery set, whilst the printed version has better details on things like the elevation and baring wheels, Ive made up the guns and will look to see if I need to add any extra details to them, I may take the elevation/baring wheels of the resin model and add them to the Hat one.

You could keep the printed one for Infantry formations, they tended to have the older wheeled versions as their guns where still often horse drawn.

I think there was another version of wheels, which where solid (not spoked) with rubber tyres.

That's the version Warlord Games do in 28mm, I have an undercoated one beside me at my desk.

Glad it is a version - I was thinking of the 10mm ones I have, but didnít have chance to dig them out to check earlier!

Very nice. May I ask what colour you used for the equipment? It looks spot on to me, and I have a bunch of GIs to paint.

If you are interested in BTD GIs I believe Colonel Bills has a bunch in stock.

Great rendition of GIs.  I think the colors are spot on! 

I like the BT fellas too.  One of my wargaming buddies gave me several of them.  Been fitting them into my units as appropriate/needed/wanted.
