I could not find an existing thread. Some views of the later version 1/76th scale Afrika Korps:

This time with a Fujimi Sdkfz 250 as a backdrop:

That is very nice work, hard to believe it is only 1/76!

Here´s my first DAK guy off the production line. It´s pretty hot here and the paint kept going thick so he looks a bit "grainy"

Here are my very old Afrika Korps  :oops:  I'd read about the mix of temperate and tropical uniforms and tried to replicate that mish-mash  :twisted:  They're in need of a repaint now though  :roll:

A mixture of hobby shop (Marabu) and P3 acrylics. The figure was painted on what turned out to be the hottest day of the year over here and the high speed drying of the paint can be noticed, especially on the face   :roll:

They look very good. I'm sitting in Egypt for a few months so what better subject to takle then the Africa Korps! My wife is kindly sending some from NZ with paint. Surprisingly I have not found anyone selling models in Egypt!

Aha! another figure painter. Lovely results. I like the guy running with the ammo box.

I agree with MacTeagle - amazing that they're the HO OO scale with that degree of detail.

Are these the same moulds as the new-ish grey box just in a different plastic?

Regards Tom.

Greetings, (Photographs updated on 12 February 2012) Recently completed all 15 poses from this set (my favourite as a kid).  My first attempt at painting in about 26 years! Quite happy with the result.  Also made a custom display stand for the figures utilising the original art-work.  Here's some pics...

Cheers,
Craig.

Love the display base, how did you do that?

Glad you like it.  The display stand basically consists of four pieces of pine glued together.  Then a quick coat of white spraypaint over the top.

On the back of the artwork, I listed the vallejo paint codes I used for each part of the figures, so if I ever want to paint more in the future, I don't have to try and remember the different colours, etc.

Good work Craig :thumb:. Great start on the forum, looking forward to seeing more. Your display stand is very effective and you've done the bases on the soldiers very well, simple and effective. What did you use? Some of them look like the big chocolate coins you get at Christmas :)

cheers,
Alex.
