Another belated update on the progress of my 15mm Team Yankee Dutch project.
There is a larger discussion here about painting progress, timing and batch sizes. I like to keep things rolling painting wise and generally expect to complete one platoon every two weeks. But currently I'm painting in larger batches (the last bunch being 10 models, or 3 different units), and this delay irks me and makes me feel like I'm not being productive. It certainly means I post less on blogger and other social media about my progress.
Anyway, while I ponder my painting ambition and goals moving forward, here are another five Dutch YPR-765 vehicles. These are the standard IFVs for my armoured infantry. These are Battlefront metal and resin 15mm kits.
I have managed to find enough spare M113 hatches to construct some of the .50cal armed turrets used on these vehicles as well. My hope is to have some more lightly armed options to represent reservist/2nd line troops. These alternative turrets are also magnetised and awaiting painting.
Four of these vehicles will form one platoons transport, while the fifth will be a spare.
As per my previous attempt at these, I enjoyed adding some of the more modern touches, such as the rear brake and indicator lights. Aerials are my usual fishing line solution.
