'A gaping silken dragon,/Puffed by the wind, suffices us for God./We, not the City, are the Empire's soul:/A rotten tree lives only in its rind.'

Are we there yet?

Very slow progress on the PSC Sdkfz 251s. So much so that the very old half track and crew offering from Airfix is getting restless:

Just goes to show, classic 1960s Airfix was ahead of the game.

I'm making a bit of a mess of painting up the PSC crew, so much so that I think I've lost the knack for IIWW 20mm plastics. So far they look like this:

Hopefully, more and better progress soon.


  1. I think those landsers look just fine.

    1. My thanks, kind sir. Your own blog is full of fine painting - you should blog more. Also about the wargames (albeit of strange sci-fi weirdness) that you indulge in.

  2. Yep, I think those PSC crew are looking absolutely fine!

    Cheers, Dave

    1. Cheers, Dave. Your comments and links have been very valuable in this little half-track project - thanks!

  3. Crew look great to me.

    Bookshop was just round the corner a few doors up past the Greyfriars art shop, on the same side as it as one walked to Middle Meadow Walk.

    What rules are you going to use I forgot to ask?

    1. I'm really struggling to remember this bookshop (which worries me!). Was it near Sandy Bells, or the bus shelter ?

      And, a more recent (1990s) addition - is 'Tills' still going, not far from the Dick Vet?

      I'm a Rapid Fire type - my mind can only cope with straightforward rules. But for the Creeping About fellows I think I'll try one of the TooFatLardies products - Triumph of the Will perhaps.
