One of the infantry companies. The two last battalions of French Infantry will be mostly like this one and then I can call the DI/DIM done.
Next: probably a video on the Herman Goring LPD in Sicily 1943.

No, not a fan of Christmas. Of course we had the family reunions, the gifts for the younger and older ones and never ending food. Love to be with my people but frankly hate Christmas and I´m always dying for it to pass. One day if the Christmas message extends into the full year with visible results of world wide happiness and all kids have the one toy they want, maybe I´ll start to like it.
Last few days after meetings allowed me to paint these amazing Sdkfz 10 designed by Mário Laranja and printed in resin. Also added were two die-cast German aircraft.
This one is an Altaya model that lived its last few years inside the transparent plastic, an Henschel HS 129. In both aircraft the usual and simple painting of the canopy interior makes it ready for action.
Next: The 7th infantry battalion for the French 1940 DI/DIM.

Rapid Fire! France 1940 in 20mm - British 1st Armoured Division finished and a few extras for other units
Same story for the Vickers MKVI B. Some stowage was placed were the printing lines were more visible.
All figures got a gas mask bag for them to come back to 1940. Another change were the heads whose helmets had netting all over (not that suitable for 1940) and were replaced by US heads from the HAT WW1 artillery set.
The seated figure in the 2 pdr is a full HAT figure with disguised puttees and jacket.
