The panzer IV in the center is an "Ace".

The Canadian (and yes, they have British marks) battlegroup started the game in "Move" mode, completely off guard without knowing what will happen to them soon!!

CPRBattlezone upgrade base for Airfix Resin Buildings

Hi Guys

Last week my friend Carlos Ramos from CPRBattlezone (http://www.cprbattlezone.com/ or https://www.facebook.com/cprbattlezone.cpr?fref=pb&hc_location=friends_tab), offer me one off is resin upgrade bases for Airfix resin models.

It's a high quality resin piece, it fits perfectly with Airfix buildings as you can see in the following pictures:


The Airfix model



The CPRBattlezone piece (all ready primed by CPR)

It looks very nice!!

Just see how they fix perfectly!!



With an 15mm figure (from PSC)

With an 20mm figure (from SHQ)

20mm

or 15mm

20mm vs 15mm

Now, it just needs a proper painting job ;-)

Cheers.
