Quickdate, million and a quarter

Just to drop in these photos: Assembled FV 4101 Charioteer, or Tstpsv Charioteer Mk.VII Mod.B. Will propably add some small details (bags, luggage, stuff like that) before painting this, propably going with model 83 winter modified "splintern" camo, or go with OD hastily overpainted with chalk-white. 

Left the smoke launcher off on purpose, after all in 1985 these things would have been in long time storage-status for a few years allready, and the actual shape of launchers is quite fragile. Im not completely happy with the shape of the turret, it turned out to be a bit too small (correct lenght, roughly correct height but should have been few millimeters wider), but it will do.

Hello Darkness, where have I been?

Well, exactly. During the past year Ive been, once again, terribly busy - this time, with my school. Started my "summer job" few weeks back, and I have had some actual time to carry on my projects.
To be honest, I havent done a lot of painting during this year, but quite a few of "left hand builds", sadly having once again my main interest towards cold war, not Afrika. Not much of a gaming has been going around (latest game was before christmast), and most of the time I find myself metagaming upcoming Battlegroup NORTHAG which, hopefuly, lets me mount my whole mech-VDV platoon with assets!

But few pictures, just to keep this blog by somehow interesting.

Somethingsomething from the cold war-front - scratch-built conversion turning plastic soldier company cromwell into Charioteer TD! For my (more) winter forces, naturaly :P Turret plastic card, hull cut down/modified PSC cromwell and barrel from RB, cant call exactly what this was but some of their 1:72 tank barrels. Made the choice by lenght and rough calibre. This is pretty much ready build (now), will try to remember to post actual pic from it then.
One of the guntrucks for my PMC-force - yes, for Afrika! Based on QRF:s IDF-truck, with scratch-built benches, PP driver, battlefront (?) DShKM and PSC turret ring. In the backround, M5-halftrack based ARV very much WIP.

Long story short - will try to make more "small" updates in future, so the spaces between updates would be less than a year.. Got some of my winter-CWGH inf in paint allready, I try to get few good snaps.
