Early War Miniatures FreInf21 French stretcher Team

Two soldiers with full kit wearing greatcoat and Adrian helmet, posed carrying a wounded comrade on a stretcher. The wounded guy is similarly dressed, his coat tails hang below the stretcher (nice touch), he has no head allowing you to give him whatever unit headgear you wish (you get a couple of variants in the pack); the bearers have armbands sculpted on (again a nice touch). The whole group looks the part, though I may paint these up to join my SCW medical unit rather than my French one.

Early War Miniatures Gveh1 Kubelwagon

In this pack you get a ready built resin Kubel, with white metal wind-screen, tilt and two crew figures.

The Kubel is smashing, though there were a few holes which had to be filled, the white metal tilt shows nice “cloth” detail, there was a little flash. The two crewmen – driver in side cap and passenger in helmet with MP40 as tidy enough and fit well into the vehicles cramped interior.

Early War Miniatures Bart9 25 Pounder Limber

In this pack you get two limbers, both 3-part white metal models – main caisson including towing arm plus two wheels. Dead easy to assemble, there was a tiny amount of flash and some faint mound lines which needed cleaning before undercoating. Both models took literally sixty seconds to assemble, great for the modeller who has no time or hates multi-part complicated kits.

1/72nd scale Humber Utility Car

First saw this on their Facebook page, but may have bought it via their Ebay store – waylander.2012

You get a very neat 2-piece resin casting – the vehicle basically cut in two. Obviously this makes for a very quick build as all you need to do is match up the two halves, check the fit (mine needed some light sanding) and glue. There were some holes in the resin and a little flash to be cleaned away (wheel arches and among the stowage in the rear), nothing too drastic and when done the finished piece looked excellent.

This vehicle would make a great addition to your desert forces, I think you could also use it in France 1940 also.
