here is a Dornier DO217e-5 carrying a couple of HS293 guided bombs
Heroics ross Do-217

 and a look at the bomb

i never know what colour to paint the cockpit blue, white or black never seems right oh well


here is a couple of i think  H&R french aircraft i got off ebay with no information. looking on the internet i think the one on the left is a morane-saulnier M.S.406 and the one on the right is a Bloch MB.152 not a great paint job and for some reason the french used blue with green and brown for their camouflage not too sure where they are trying to hide

do-335 airplane

Here is a  H&R Do335, haven't painted any aircraft for a long time. in fact i don't think I've ever done any better than a single colour on any 1/300 planes but recently I've been making some 1/72 plastic kits (reliving my youth) so now i have all the correct paints time to get some mini air forces.
All the pictures that I've seen of the do-335 show it in green camo which might have been how the test flights were done but i reckon if it got into service it would have carried a low vis camo like the BF109 and FW190 so here is my attempt at grey mottle camo

Napoleonic army

My napoleonic french army that i painted about 20 years ago it is based for Navwars 5mm rules.
these rules played quite a good game with a nice section on deployment. i would allways attack from the march with my lancers leading and roll up half of my mate's british army untill he got his rifles on the table and they would spoil my fun
Line infantry

Hussar regiment

Big guns!!
whole army

3 Heroics and Ros sdkfz 251/2 81mm mortar carrier painted for circa 1944/5
not too bad a model although the single gunner in back might get a little tired in a sustained bombardment

Sarmatian ancients

A close up of one base of sarmatian knights, these are riding armoured horses. The irregular battlepack contains both armoured and unamoured horses in equal numbers making it more of an early sarmatain army.
