Airfix Morris Quad & 25pdr

Good evening everyone.

I haven't been posting in a while, since I haven't really been feeling well, morally. It's been a depressing past few weeks, and I've been making some thinking and pondering. I've been rearranging some things, and changing parts of my life.

I am currently waiting to have my paycheck before I order some Italians, so I have been finishing my Airfix Italians, Revell Siberians, Revell DAK, and FJ's.

Anyway, here's some work back from November. 


Crew are a mix of Airfix Ghurkas and original crew.




Easy conversions on the Ghurkas, as seen in this terribly blurry photo.



 I decided to not include the drivers, as they were needed elsewhere.


Up next: Revell/Matchbox Pz.II

Thanks for reading.

  1. Good work on the 25pdr, do you intend to base the gun etc?
    I hope your morale improves- sometimes our expectations can get us in all sorts of trouble, I've learnt that there are some things that are better to "accept" rather than "expect"- "It is what it is".

    Take care,
    John.

    1. I will be basing the crew, but I leave my guns and vehicles unbased, to give them more versatility (I could make an exception for these, since they won't serve anywhere else than in the Desert Campaign, but I am a little bit of a perfectionist when it comes to uniformity, and they all need to be the same.)

      Thanks for the kind advice John, and my morale has definitely improved since I posted.

  2. Such a delightful model is enough to lift anyone's mood!

  3. Sorry to hear you've been feeling low. I do find that the painting a modelling helps at such times. Hope you're feeling more positive soon.

    Nice work on the gun and quad, it's such an iconic piece of British/Commonwealth equipment. Good conversions on the crew as well, it's amazing what a head-swap can achieve.

    1. There are no headswaps believe it or not, just "gun/knife removals" and "arm seperatings".

      I am feeling much better than I did when posting this.

      Thanks Alan!

  4. An oldie but a goodie. I like your ex-Ghurkas a lot better than the original crew.

    Cheers, Dave

    1. Figures always look better in our minds than they do in reality. I was expecting the crew figures to be at the same standards as there Bofors crew, but was obviously giving airfix's 1960's sculpts too much credit.

    1. Thanks, as soon as I saw the photos on PlasticSoldierReview.com I knew I had to have them, just for the possibilities of crew poses. There are more that will man my (future) 6pdrs, 2pdrs, and 5.5in cannons.
