I've now added tank commanders to all the open hatches on the vehicles Brent has painted for me, and a few of my own efforts.
These are metal figures by Michael Perry. I am a mahoosive fan of Michael's work, but these are a wee bit lumpy. Full of character though, once painted. I think they really bring the vehicles to life (even though I'm sure hatches were firmly battened down in battle - so not very realistic, but hey ho... )
I apologise - it's a lot of pictures for just 6 little figures, but I'm quite in love with these
The British armour...
Marmon Herrington and Honey painted by Brent, the Vickers by me. As you can see, my attempt at Caunter scheme has come out a bit darker than Brent's, but they're not a million miles apart.
And the DAK armour...
Panzer III by Brent, Tiger I and Panzer II by yours truly.
And a few close ups...
Panzer III commander:
(Love this figure. Such a small lump of metal. So much wonderful character... I've now adopted the Redzed method for sunglasses, goggles and binoculars - thanks Shaun!)
Panzer II commander:
The Marmon-Herrington A/C:
Again, so much period character in one little figure. Marvellous
I'm only sorry you can't see the lovely detail of the rolled down socks too.
I have given this guy a stable belt. Don't know if that's realistic for the era, but I like the flash of colour.
Once again, binoculars using the Redzed method...
I've also replaced the pennons on the aerial - the original ones were a bit too big and stiff looking...
