German Kradschutzen : Operation Sealion

After the big battle at the weekend it has taken a while to tidy up and I have been busy with a few bits and pieces. But after being scared off by big prices I found the following three on eBay before Christmas. £6.50 each a bargain considering they are £14 normally. These are the Blacktree versions, pretty happy with how they have gone together but I do hate metal figures there are 9 or 10 bits to each one !

I am hoping to pick up one more rider if I can at York at the weekend so the unit is 10 strong.

  1. Nice looking additions, Matt, but I entirely agree about fiddling bits on Wargames models.

  2. very cool, can I be these. I also hate the glueing bit. Just do a simple spear with hand attached. Doesn't fit. See you at York

  3. Well they certainly look worth the hassle of assembly, I feel your pain I have been assembling a M/C tonight. I have the joy of trying to get the rider to fit tomorrow >~(

    1. Thanks Phil...I think the modern plastics are just designed and sculpted to fit together much better, I'm not an expert but presume it is the castings and moulding process ? Hey ho they are done now🙂

    1. Thanks Michael....these were better than the last two I did and did need much pinning, but I still had to use force to bend the driver to get his legs and arms into the right positions. But they are done now....🙂
