Being a modeller for quite a few years now, I decided to explore the endless possibilities that the world (through internet) offers, and come up with a series of ways of building, modelling and painting fast (but not hastily), to create the worlds I was seeing in history books since I was little. . .If you care to join me. . . This is the place to be! And, I promise you to find the way (or ways)!!

US Recce Platoon

Good day everyone!
While looking at my notebook, of my ''must-buy'' stuff, I came across of a US Recce Platoon (generic, tailored made by me), that I decided to make some days ago. For this reason I have bought 2 Italeri's Fast Build M3A1 Halftracks and 2 Italeri's M20 Greyhounds in order to make my drafts a reality!They have been painted with FOW Spray (US Armour) and Vallejo Model colours and washes.
I've also included some figures to ''escort'' them from various manufacturers (mainly Italeri).





















I hope you like them!

  4. Nice Job Thanos! Like them! Maybe add one or two M3 Stuart Tanks to give the Platoon some fast and armoured support.

    Keep on going Mate!

  7. Fantastic group. I was wondering about the Italieri M3s and your work on them has convinced me I must have some! And those infantrymen look great too.

    Good idea to do a recce platoon. It provides a neat focus for a small force.

    Now you just need to download this to find out how to use them ;-)

  8. Thank you all for your kind words!
    @Rich: The FOW paint comes in a spray can. Very handy, and in many colours (US Armour, Soviet Armour, British Armour, Early German Armour, Late German Armour).
    @Alan: The manual you sent me is just fantastic! Now, I might get a glimpse of how things should have been done those days! Thank you! :-)
