Isreali 1948 - 1979 1/300 Micro

I bashed out these a while ago, long before GHQ produced an Israeli half track.
I've made a mistake, can you spot it? It will be corrected as soon as..

Not based on any particular formation, just a great deal of choice!
Models are all based for the Cold War Commander rule set mentioned elsewhere on this site.
Models are all GHQ.

Converted M113 and M3 to command versions.

Still some seated figures and crew to add.........aircraft to follow...........
The observant will notice a lack of 1948 stuff.....its coming....:-)

West German 1/300 Armoured Brigade

As part of my conquest on the 'Lead Pile' these were next on the table.
I started with the 'bits' first as I'm not able to use them without the 'bulk' so it drives the painting on......supposedly!

Based on a West German Armoured Brigade circa 1983, the Brigade comprises of two battalions of Leopard 1, 1 battalion of Marder, 1 composite battalion of two platoons of Leopard 11 and 2 platoons of Marder, these were to be attached during a war footing...and the associated bits that make up the brigade.
I originally wanted to an earlier force with M47's however no one produces a nice model of the Hotchkis 30 carriers they were using during the period, so until they are available these were the earliest I could go with what is available.
I realise the Beobachtungspanzerkanone is circa 1987, however I like them so I'm having one...two!
