Just a quickie to remind everyone (including myself) that I'm still about. Work, life and continuing computer troubles have kept me from doing much more than making the odd comment for a while, but I'll be trying to get some posts in and updating shortly.
Meanwhile, I've finally found time to paint something! Here's a couple of not brilliant pics of some Airfix Afrika Korps painted up in fieldgrey. With a bit of a squint they'll do fine for Ost battalion troops in Normandy, and add a bit of variety to my German Infantry.
The chap on the bottom left appears to suffer from the "Curse of Airfix German SMGs", and is carrying something highly improbable, in this case what looks like an MP41 (which was never issued to front line troops). I suppose I can squint at it and pretend its the German manufactured version of the Beretta, or maybe not.
Also, many thanks for all the kind words said in response to my last post about the British paras. To those of you who asked if I could do a step by step...
Now I just need a day that's not freezing cold and a howling gale to get the undercoated!
