What's all this then?

An infrequent collection of ramblings and pictures related to gaming. I play mainly Sci-Fi or Fantasy, but have recently found myself feeling nostalgic & yearning for my Army days in BAOR - hence the 6mm Coldwar forces & the foray into 20mm.

20mm FV438 - Swingfire

This doesn't exist in 20mm at the moment and I quite fancy having one!

I've had a go at scratch building a Swingfire Turret to go on one of my S&S FV432s.

I haven't scratch-built anything before so it's been interesting & frustrating. I've ended up with something that isn't as accurate as I like, but that should represent it in enough detail for the wargames board!

I've dug out plasticard, balsa wood, fuse wire, bits of biro & a multitude of other scraps I had lying around.

This is it "naked"

And this is it painted & in place - 

Overall I'm really pleased with it - not 100% accurate, but for a first go I think it gets the point across!!
