Inspired by one of the crazy impulses we wargamers suffer from I bought a load of Japanese models from Scotia (http://www.scotiagrendel.com/Products/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=4_23&zenid=99f8b374eee83f139fa379bb89920765) a few years ago and surprisingly, painted tham all within a short period of time. A few words about Scotia for those of you unfamiliar with the make. While the detail of their models generally falls some way short of GHQ or CinC, they are far cheaper, and in terms of both quality and price are on a par with Heroics & Ros. The reason that I have so many Scotia models is that their range includes many models unavailable elsewhere. As well as the Japanese, most of my South Africans are from Scotia, together with significant portions of my Arabs, Russians (especially engineering kit) and Gulf 1 UK & US troops.

All four Infantry Companies of the battalion. I know that the Flags are overscale, but I felt they added a certain something.
The Heavy Weapons and AT Companies - SU 60 APC (produced 1959-early 1970s) and Type 60 106mm SP Recoilless Gun.
