Storm those Normandy beaches!
Vintage version 1 1960s OOHO Airfix US Marines recently rebased and painted https://manoftinblog.wordpress.com/2021/06/07/from-the-halls-of-montezuma-airfix-version-1-us-marines-1963/
Invade that Pacific Atoll with your new Popsicle landing craft!
One of the happy curses of gaming and scrap modelling is the inability to look at what something is supposed to be used for, without rapidly working out how it could be recycled or repurposed for the gaming table.
It’s summer and the DIY lollies or popsicle makers have arrived.
What else could these be?
A shame that Lakeland or Lekue or whoever don’t manufacture more of these popsicle moulds in blue or grey or camouflage. That light green is a little too light and one tone.
A pleasant diversion here in Pound Store Plastic Warriors land from making landing craft out of milk cartons?
Enough Vintage Airfix?
To make it properly a Pound Store Plastic Warriors post, I have reshot the landing with Pound Store type play mat backdrop and figures and found cardboard scenery, Atlantic Wall style.
Blue clad marine infantry (Airfix US Infantry copies) and light tank support versus green infantry (ditto) with bizarre rocket and searchlight battery.
