    Hi guys,

    Thought I would post these pictures of what is also on my bench alongside the Anzac Horseman......

    these are all going on one base which me and my very long suffering mate Jimbo are working on together ......

    mums the word at the moment ...more of which will come to light as this progresses .......

    but it will be special that I promise you !

    Scale 1/12 2 from AC Miniatures and 1 from The Fusilier they all look right together size wise just my rubbish pics!

    Acrylics

    Still a bit of basecoating to finish then all hands to the bench as they say

    Thanks for looking in

    Nice WIP photos and I look forward to seeing your super project completed!

    Question - Who made the 1903 ammo bandolier and the trench periscope? The periscope looks great!

    It may be the photos or just my old eyes, but the ammo containers might be a bit too large. I may be 180 out so feel free to ignore this. I'm posting some references for your consideration. I thought I had something that gave the actual 1903 ammo pouch dimensions, but can't find it.

    All the best,
    Dan

    Hi to everyone ,

    Thanks for comments guys..watch this thread as they say ...


    Dan ,

    The periscope was done by Andy Cairns as was the bandolier , ref the size ..I have many pictures all looking slightly different but the guy in the blue shirt is a too close picture really when they are all together all looks good ( this was done by Steve Warrilow from The Fusilier) ...all are 1/12 th , slight variations but then we are all different!

    Thanks for the pictures ..in my files!

    This will be simmering away in the background while I finish my cavalryman!

    Cheers to everyone for passing by

    Kev,
    I think maybe some "bulk" needs to come off of those ammo pouches/bandolier on the guy with the service cap on??:whistle:

    I told you that the ANZAC's didn't put their Shreded Wheat in their ammo pouches Kevin
