Cav Dog, those look very nice.
What green did you use on the BMP-3, BTR-80, and tanks? Also the Strykers?
Love the BM-27.

Sweet looking Jordanian tanks. What color and brand do you use for your Russian vehicles?

Hoth, they look great. Nice painting.

The ASCOD… this is the Austrian Ulan, with add on armor. It was the AJAX, but I cut off the vision device that rose from the turret.

I took some stuff over to the club last Sunday - mostly the CinC Leopard IIs that I've been posting photos of. Additionally there are a few GHQ Archer tank destoyers and a Churchill VII squadron (with a couple modified to act as Churchill Vs). Oh! and some 3mm gliders.

Nice looking tanks Chris!

Gazza, nice work! How so you store and transport your vehicles? Is that a wooden box that you have them organized in?

I do use that storage method for my WW2 (early) French and '67-73 Jordanians but my preferred method (and the one I use for my late war Americans, Brits, Germans, and Russians) are those individual storage boxes that I've posted about before (link: viewtopic.php?p=82216#p82216.)

The method you asked about uses either balsa or box wood as the walls (and dividers) and a thick card base for each storage tray. Two or three trays are then stacked a plastic storage box / boxfile etc depending on the individual player.

The balsa / box wood trays are used by a number of other micro armour players at the club. Here's a photo showing some of their boxes: Image

My storage boxes are similar. I use unfinished playing card boxes from hobby lobby.
