Work In Progress / Re: Codename: Sherman 2016 - T23 Prototype 180217

Our M4 Sherman add-on resin kit - The T34 Calliope Tank Mounted Multiple Rocket Launcher (MRL). The T34 comes with two choices - early and late production variants. It also comes with a hole drilling fixture for the turret as well.

If you looked at the T34 closely, you will find our resin design integrate seamlessly with our plastic kit. Quality & detail is our priority when it comes to our "Rubicon Models" name!











Enjoy!
;)

Embarrassing.



Yes, I have mixed up the lieutenant and one of the NCOs. Left hand figure above. I need to re-photograph them and also the SAS with the K-Gun stand in (MG-42 I think). The lieutenant at least has the right magazine pouch.

I was going for the B-Movie vibe, you are correct about the pouches but then they have infinite repeater magazines ^__^.

The Yanks look great , like something out a 60s Alien Invasion /  Monster Movie right down to having one kind of weapon and another kind of ammo pouches , well done . You meant to do that right ?  Don't know of any M-16 style looking pouches  in 1/56 , ( cut the BA Brit ones shorter and cast in resin maybe ) you might have to get out the green stuff . Italeri had some pouches in some of their 1/35 sets that were underscale that might work . The Commando looks awesome , very much Tiger Comic if you know what I mean . But he has a Thompson not a captured weapon , did you post the wrong pic ?

Well, here is a small squad of US equipped infantry, armed with M16s and wearing war time kit.


I bought a Warlord US Army sprue at Warfare 2016 and combined it with M16s from the Wargames Factory male survivors equipment sprue (now included in the Warlord Games Project Z survivors set).

The majority of the figures are unmodified, the left hands have been opened up to grasp the wider foregrip of the M16.

I'm going to borrow Tracks idea and create  a thread on 1/56 plastic figure conversions . We've all done them , weather its just replacing a arm or head so your tank commanders look a little different , to full on butchering of bodies , arm and legs to get that unique figure for your squad . Everyone feel free to jump in and post pictures of dudes you've created . Would even like to see Frostgrave type mashups , I've got an idea of the Soldiers chain mail type  bodies with BA German helmets and gas masks , armed with a variety of German and Russian weapons  ::) . Sorry I get side tracked sometimes . If possible tell us what parts you used on your conversions , of course if your like me you have a large stash of left and right arms with no concern from whence they came ,you just pick through the bin till you find one that fits , sort of ... and then you make it fit . Hopefully we get to see lots of neat creations and will be inspired by them to make more of our own . I'll start . I've always like the iconic look of the German mg teams firing over the shoulder of one of the crew . So I decided to make my own using the 2 kneeing Para figures . A lot of trial and error went into this with one arm ending up being made from parts of 3 other arms . Of course no pictures were taken during the kit bash , I've tried to note my progress on builds but I find as I think about what I'm doing , I tend to stop doing it . Creativity for me is just going ahead and doing it . Anyway here's my Para mg crew , and yes that is the extra  machine gun arm from the BA 251 half track crewman , finally found a use for it

Seeing them all together like that is awesome . I found things in the diorama video that wasn't in shot in the still photos . Like the cat skulking through the long grass in the Stompie dio . Well done Steve . Would love to see what happens to that Officer standing by the muzzle break of the 75mm when they fire that thing  ;D
