Trucks


Tim Mee two and a half ton truck.


Long out of production, but Tim Mee says they may do a Kickstarter to raise money for a new mold.


I got these at a hobby show.  They will serve my 60mm Pentomic Army.

Some have a trailer hitch and some do not.  The older ones don't have the hitch.

Vehicles fo r Transport


Resin terrain, hull down positions.


A couple new acquisitions from Fidelis Models.


You can see a couple pontoon bridges in the foreground.


The old system on the right shows the food storage boxes I used to use to store unpainted plastic figures.  I have been transitioning to these newer boxes with the thin cardboard label.  Much easier to read what's inside.


Resinn  M7 Preists.


Another view of the Panzer III.

Travel and Storage


Most of my collection is stored in Sterilite underbed plastic storage boxes.


Here is a mixed unit being prepared for transport to a hobby show for display.


A beer flat, actually a Skippy peanut butter box from Sam's Club.


Terrain ready for travel.


Roco Panzer III.

Cavemen


I have had a chance to apply primer to my cavemen.


I call them cavemen because I use movies like One Million BC as one of my primary sources of information about prehistoric life.

There are very few actual "cavemen" in 1/72nd scale.


Phersu Miniatures makes very nice resin figures in 1/72nd scale.


I have re-purposed a number of other figure sets to get a pretty impressive range of figures.


By careful shopping and a few conversions you can get decent ancient megafauna too.


Soft plastic and resin figures are much cheaper than the metal 28mm alternatives.
