Default 'a time for reflection...'

Quote:
American troops in a now secure area come across a destroyed Churchill tank.

They remember a joke between the infantry and armoured:

Infantry: "You wouldn't catch me in one of those tin cans."

Armoured: "You wouldn't catch me on foot, all exposed."

This time the infantry take time to reflect on this joke and take thanks that they weren't in a tin can.


This is all 1/35 scale, with pigments and washes used to show the black charred bits, drill and knife work for the shell holes and stress fractures.

Hello my dear, still knocking around. It has been a difficult year with the business folding and my father passing a couple of months ago, but life goes on. I don't know about busy, modelling is taking longer and longer as I am struggling more...luckily there is no time limit.

Not been to the van hardly at all this year, but hopefully that will change next year and we can enjoy it more.

Really pleased you like it, I know war stuff isn't everybody's cup of tea, that is why I try and give a message, something different.

Si

Ta mate, they take longer and longer these days, do a bit when I want to...no hurry.

Glad you like it.
