Men at rest and at work .... (some conversions)
Pegasus make some 1/48 plastic figures sets, I bought the californian gold miners set
the figures are about 37mm tall, so just usable with 40mm. The poses are very good and I did some conversions to provide some figures for camps and work parties . The standing figures were placed on a some 2mm cardboard to get their height up a bit and then based.
The aim was to use as many figures as possible with minimal change,
- swapped all heads with Sash&Sabre ones
- removed some 'modern' detail
- altered the lower leg and footwear
- a bit of arm re-positioning
- some shirt collars added where needed
The finished conversions - two chaps to sit round a camp fire
Man rolling finished empty gabion (plastic Renedra one ), and man making a gabion...
