Whirarwistan: US Mechanized Infantry I

Strange how the brain works, a night of insomnia the other day led me to pondering digging out the Whirarwistan US and Soviet infantry and cracking on with them. Having dipped a load of Zulus I was in the "dip zone" so I got on with the remaining two US Mechanized Infantry Squads, finishing the first this lunchtime...


The figures are a mix of Esci and Revell plastics and painted up using the techniques detailed here. The final squad just needs the basing finishing and that will be the infantry for the Mechanized Platoon complete.

  1. These are really very good. Done to this standard 1/72 is on a par with any 28mm figures. Thanks for sharing this....I am off to dig out some 20mm....

    1. I would like to claim all the credit but the dip does the hard work - have a look at the step by step on the Whirawistan blog link above.

  2. Great work, Steve - did you prep them beforehand with PVA etc?

    1. No Monty, I find the dip does the same thing. The barrels might be a possible weak area but after a few knocks they still are ok. I've had no flaking on these or my dipped WWI infantry.

  3. Great work, the Revell set is one of my favorite sets.
