Just finished off some additional Winter vehicles for my Volksgrenadiers. And a UNIC halftrack for Normandy snuck in too.
Nice work. 21st Panzer managed to keep a few UNICs running until late 1944, so you can use them against Pattons mob in Lorraine too.

Thanks, I wasn't aware of that. Maybe I should paint up those GIs.... ;)

One image - it also appears in 'The Combat History of the 21st Panzer Division' but this is the best online version I can find. These are troops from the Japanese- American 442nd RCT.

Bollocks! Russian Jagers undercoated and ready to go, only to find that all my green paint is from a bad batch - three brand-new tins, all dried solid! Never seen that before. I'll have to go and undercoat some SYW Prussians now, so that's half the day wasted.

Cracking picture, thanks for sharing that. Although it seems to suggest I should redo the decals :wall: and that UNIC has had extensive rebuilding to create side storage, not unlike the sdkfz 251. Hmm, I can feel myself tempted.

Not wasted.. you've discovered the tins are bad. And undercoated some SYW... in any case, your productivity puts the rest of us to shame. Just think of it as handicapping.

No, Eureka. I've used up my old stock of Old Glory Prussians and they've changed to a bloody awkward pack size (25 per pack, but only 1 officer, 1 NCO, 1 standard bearer and 1 NCO), so won't be buying any more (except perhaps one more pack, as I need the third Franconian regiment and I've already used Old Glory Prussians for the other two regiments).

Eureka are more expensive, but they're still very nice figures and I can buy exactly what I want.
