This weekend I painted a couple 15mm-scale retro Mercedes Benz cars for Crossfire. These will be nice little scenery pieces to add some detail to my Middle East & African tabletops. The black & maroon cars are 5-piece metal models (car body + wheels), & the wrecked car is a single-piece resin cast (which I painted a while back); all from the excellent Peter Pig.
I'll be buying a couple more of these, & maybe leaving the wheels off one to paint as a rusty/ burnt-out wreck. The centre of the wheels left off this wreck could be drilled-out to make a little stack of tyres to enhance a scenery piece.
I've just noticed that I forgot to paint the number plates of these cars. Doh!

I'd hoped to have more than this to post by today, but I prefer to present finished things. I have a load of 28mm-scale Russian Civil War stuff in progress, including a platoon of White Guards, & a laser-cut ply village - but all of that is still in progress on my work desk... So for now, here's the first of the laser-cut buildings: a small barn. This is made by Sarissa Precision. Their buildings come in unpainted flat sheets, but the parts are simple to press-out, & they fit together perfectly. They have removable roofs too. The assembly instructions are clear & straightforward. I'll add some fake straw to the floor of this barn once I get some.
