UNIT have called for vehicle support, and it has arrived :D .......
Following a thread on the lead adventure forum regarding a snatch land rover model from SandS models, i decided to check them out and perhaps purchase one for use with my British UN/UNIT type troops..... so i emailed Shaun fom SandS for some further information..... who sent me his range lists..... i soon discovered that not only did they do a snatch land rover but a larger range of 28mm modern vehicles in 1:60 scale........ finally i managed to come away with 9 models instead of just the one land rover as originally planned..... could have bought more but had to use some self control and say no... next time ;) lol
the models were as follows..
1:60 ..28mm modern...
1x BRITISH SNATCH LANDROVER
1x LAND ROVER 110 CLOSED TOP
1x LAND ROVER WOLF WMIK
1x CVRT SCORPION
1x CVRT SCIMITAR
1x CVRT SPARTAN APC
1x PINZGAUER 4X4
1x M113 APC
1x VAB 6X6 APC
so they arrived a few days ago (click for bigger picture)
The models themselves were clean castings and quite easy to put together, only glued my fingers to things once or twice......overall quite satisfied with them and will purchase more as and when new models are released or if i feel the need to buy more
so i quickly couldn't wait to get started on them.... and 4 hours later they had all been cleaned and made up ready for priming and painting :)
so now over the next week or so the plan is to paint them..... i've decided to go for the NATO black and green camo scheme rather than the white of the UN ...... and call me mad but i've purchased some real NATO Green military paint to paint them with lol...
so i'll try and keep you updated as and when i get stuff done..
for now.... Be seeing you
