    Those figures look really good John.

    Really? I have several resin 1/35 miniatures I painted several years ago that show no signs of deterioration. The only comment I would make is that they can be brittle if dropped.

  5. Re: Any support for Falklands War figures amongst British Collectors?

    There was a bit of media interest in the conflict several years ago. I think they were commemorating thirty years of the conflict (2012). Airfix made some Falklands aircraft and ship sets.

    I agree...
  6. Re: Any support for Falklands War figures amongst British Collectors?

    Hi Roy,

    That's not quite right. Both Chota Sahib and New Hope Design were companies that had various Falklands War figures available in the 1980's and 1990's that would go well with those Corgi...

    An older book I enjoyed greatly is R.F Delderfield's 'Seven Men of Gascony'. It revolves around seven men from Gascony (no surprise), serving as Voltiguers through Austria, Spain, Russia and finally...

    Re: Primer brushes?

    Looking at the clogging problem from another perspective it might be worth trying thinning out the primer you are using. It should flow easier and stop gathering on your brushes.

    Re: Odd Lancers. Any ideas?

    Thanks John,

    That's what I was thinking about them as well. Stripping the paint off them may reveal if the heads have been changed.

    They are quite odd though.

    Odd Lancers. Any ideas?

    Something of a mystery.

    These two figures came in a job lot I purchased some time ago. I suspect they may be Staddens, but am not sure. They have sheet steel bases.

    I am also not sure what they...

    Re: Broken reins

    Gary,

    I would file the damage reign ends off and make a new bit by cutting and bending a paper clip. I would drill the edges of the horse's mouth and Araldite the bit in position.
