Some more LRDG accessory packs added to the store this week. Just a reminder we are at the wonderful Partizan show in Early October and Warfare in November.

One of 4 new accessory packs now on the store

Although I try to carry 3 or 4 of each item that we do carry to shows, these can get easily depleted at the show, so please do pre-order where you can, and perhaps top up from what we carry at the shows.

I do really enjoy the shows, a chance to speak with our customers and for you to enjoy my fine GINGER NUTZ!

Update 11th August 2022

Tom Lobley recently made an 18/25 Pdr MkV split trail field gun, used across many fronts in early WW2 from France/Belgium to Norway, North & East Africa and the Far East. I took the opportunity to remaster the original 18/25 Pdr MkIV by decreasing the number of pieces and remolding. Further I remastered some new crewman for both these Field guns. Followed by a built & ready version of the Guy Ant field gun tractor unit.

18/25 Pdr MkV split trail field gun and crew.
18/25 Pdr MkIV field gun with accessories and Caisson.

The Caisson now comes BUILT & READY just decide doors open or closed, plus I reduced the price as it is easier for us to produce them. The Guy Ant comes built & ready made from EWM SUPERCAST, just take out of the pack and paint.

Guy Ant Tractor and Caisson come built & Ready, here towing the split trail 18/25 Pdr MkV.

So, these field guns come as just a gun or as sets for Gun plus Caisson, Gun-Caisson & Crew and Gun Tractor – Caisson and Field gun. Hope you like them.

Enjoy.

The new LRDG range is very close to being ready for release, some pictures here to wet the appetite.

When we do a new range, I like to be as thorough as I can be. Tom has been busy working with me on this pretty vast new LRDG range, as has Andy helping in all area’s. the original inspiration book he found is the main cause of the problem…i mean range creation!

The LRDG is one of those rather obsessive subjects, the more you look and appreciate the exploits of the men who fought these machine, their opposition, the allies, the more absorbing the subject becomes. A time consumer on a vast scale. The very many variations of the LRDG vehicles, weapon fits, kit and men makes for a great modelling and gaming subject. The individual character of the machines and men also helps. The range then had to allow for such local and personal characteristics, options for each model. The crew figures all come with optional heads in each kit. The vehicles with optional stowage and the chance to personalise the models. Accessories allow further customization.

Chevy 1533 types including Breda 20mm
1533 with Vicker HMG
Ford F30

The range has consumed much time and effort, multiple vehicle and figure/accessory molds, to enable the models to be available. All part of the job. The more you explore this fascinating subject matter, the more you learn and appreciate what is involved.
