Syrian Army Lebanon 1982

Started on the first of the BTR 60 apcs for my Syrians mechanised battalion . I struggled to find any seated figures so I sculpted a couple of seated legs and made a mould of them. I then used the resin legs to convert some combat miniatures Syrian infantry to seated figures. It works out quite well I can see these legs being quite handy for converting other figures to seated figures.
Next up are some converted Combat miniatures figures to act as commandos

Israeli defence forces 1982

Israeli defence forces 1982

This is a project I have been working on for a while. Figures are a mix of elhiem miniatures, combat miniatures and Orion. Vehicles are Hobbyden and Italeri.

Mourabitoun Militia Lebanon 1982

I have decided this will be my first Lebanese militia. Just my thing as they started out with Sherman fireflies and staghounds with AEC turrets and lots of pickups and armed trucks. I have the AEC turret now I need to look at some Staghound options. I will start with some gun trucks  and take it from there.

I am going to need lots of drivers for the gun trucks. As there is nothing else available that will work I sculpted a driver .
