Doesn't he know a watched pot never boils? or so the wives tail says
Excellent dio. What is the rod sticking out the right side of the cooker for?

Re: British Tanker

Its the flame adjuster, clips to the back of the heat shield over the petrol tank when not being used.

Best regards

Dave

Re: British Tanker

Dave, if I caught any of my men leaving their weapons on the ground while they cooked dinner... I would abuse them verbally, and take my white glove for a weapon cleaning inspection ... and my country still lost that war!!

Gorgeous setup, looks awesome

Re: British Tanker

Very nice !!

I really like the cooker. It makes a fantastic accessory. May I ask where you got it? Is it scratchbuilt?

Re: British Tanker

Hi Loic,


You will be pleased to hear in the finished dio the Sten is on top of the ammo box :-)


Jordi,


Yes, scratch built but the one in the pics is a subsequent resin cast. The parts are very thin and fragile and the moulds are not working brilliantly at the moment but I can sort them out will offer these.


Best regards


Dave

Re: British Tanker

Concur...that portable cooking stove is a work of fine art that really enhances the scene. If you do plan on producing them then I'd definitely fork-out the money for one. The tanker figure is also top notch and really conveys the appearance of a crewman who has seen and done his fair share of warfighting.
Thanks for sharing...Steve
