Right, a big update on what I have been up to so far.

First up I have completed painting 13 Fallschirmjager from Foundry and another

six from Warlord, all metal. There is a nice mixture of postures and the two manufacturers

go well together. Please note the flame thrower and Panzerschreck figures came with the group so

I painted them up as well even though I am not aware of these types of equipment being used in the

invasion of Crete but they would of been present with the occupation force later on.

Next is two small buildings from Charlie Foxtrot models. Both come from the pan tile Italian range but

fit perfectly into any Mediterranean setting. I added a scratch built trellis for the outside of one

building as I found a really nice picture of a similar building being used as make shift field hospital

with injured troops recovering under the shade. It also gave me a chance to finally use the pink

scatter and create a beautiful Bougainvillea climbing up.

I have also started on two DFS 230 gliders. One is from Sarissa(28mm laser cut) and the other is plastic kit by Hobby in 1/48 scale. The strange thing is that the 28mm kit is bigger than the 1/48 kit and I have measured both and the 1/48 is very accurate for scale.

Finally I have started converting a Sarissa aerial kit into a radio transmitter station.
