Early war fallschirmjaeger, a Gloster Gladiator and some more British guns

Worked up some stuff for a Crete game I would like to host later this summer.  Well, neither of the guns are suitable, but I might use the 2-pounder to stand in for a second Bofors gun in the Heraklion paradrop scenario since I only have one Bofors.

An old Hinchliffe 2-pounder ATG

 An Airfix 25 pounder

First batch of some Valiant fallschirmjaeger - HQ section and a 50mm mortar team. I like the Valiant figures very much - the sculpts are oversized with large heads, but from 3 feet away I like the way they look. They are also very easy to paint because the detail is clear and well raised.

And finally, something to sit on the airstrip at Heraklion - a vintage Airfix Gloster Gladiator. Simple little kit that was a gift from my mother-in-law's beau who is a flea market picker extraordinaire.
