Hello all you fine folk, I trust you are keeping well, this post is a bit different in that it’s a review of some fine Pegasus 1/72 soldier sets that I have purchased and will be using to make my own mini sets as I have now finished the Zvezda sets that I had. I have a few more to show but first a look at these fine figures that I am putting alongside some German Panzers in a series of my own creation.
I have chosen two sets, they are the Waffen SS sets and have rated well on the PSR (1/72 Plastic Soldier Review). You can check them out in more detail on their site if you are interested. The two sets go well together which is a real plus if you want to do a smallish diorama, the poses are active and realistic. I painted them with my usual Acrylics followed by a wash and a spray of Acrylic Matt Varnish. Well that’s it for the moment I will post the others in a day or two.
I have to say I received a big surprise in yesterday’s mail! It was a parcel of models that I had purchased in February and had written them off as unlikely to be received, the reason being that they were from one of my supplier’s in the Ukraine. Well obviously the last thing you are going to think of when your country has just been invaded is to ship some toys around the world to some old guy!!
I emailed him as it was well past the feedback time and his reply was that he would get back to sending out his stuff when he was able and hoped we could continue our happy business relationship. So I whipped in another order with him as I don’t think I could be as cool as that under the circumstances!
I’ll be back soon, keep well my friends.
