Other Polish stuff

My final post on my 20mm Poles covers the odds and ends, otherwise known as Army assets.  First up we have a Heavy Artillery Regiment.  155mm (Schneider) by Hinchliffe, crew  by FAA and C7P tractor by Frontline.  I've had the toys for a while and finally got round to finishing them last month.
AA Regiment.  The gun (representing a Vickers 75mm) is from the Irregular 'Really Useful Guns' range.  The tractor is another Frontline C7P.
The Army signals detachment.  Polski-Fiat 508 and radio trailer by Frontline, with a spare Miltra cavalryman added.

Great stuff! Nice to see different stuff, I think there is a lot of scope for manufacturers to include such nations and their kit

Nice mix of equipment and great painting. Really enjoying this show and tell!

Thanks for your appreciative comments. The madness continues...

Tim,

Like so much of the early war equipment, this 'kit' has a sort of eccentric but appealing look about it.

I look forward to seeing more!

All the best,

Bob

Eccentric kit - me? Whoever expected that! There's plenty more where that lot came from.

These are getting better. I like your style of painting them..the drybrushing. It really brings the detail out. I´ll have to have a go at that myself.
Cheers
Paul

I like the drybrushing technique because it is quick and looks very scruffy - like a well used vehicle would.

The early period has a lot of charm - lots of variety but nothing works terribly well!

Lovely Polish Stuff

Really like the radio trailer, I have wondered who else might have used them as I'm still trying to avoid building a Polish army

An almost identical radio trailer graces the HQ of my 29th Panzer Grenadier Division, although with a seating German radio op riding on it (converted from an SHQ horse cart driver).

I think it's fairly safe to assume that the Germans used small (or in some cases large) numbers of whatever kit they were able to nick from anyone else! Clearly then your chalenge in the next MB game where my Poles appear is to capture said trailer so it can appear with 29PD later in the war!
