Taxi and small Bus ....

A couple of transport items for my 1940 home guard games. These are from Lledo. The taxi was rather high so I lowered the roof and added a driver. The bus has had the sides repainted to be more neutral and driver plus a couple of passengers added.

Inflatables with crew - WIP

Had a couple of resin castings of inflatables, but was stuck for some chaps to put in them.  Having made up some Valiant paratroopers, left over were some kneeling figures - - just what I needed. So with some heads from spare Valiant german infantry made up some guys with paddles (paddles made from cut down small dental brushes). Still need some work to finish off......
