Hi Good figures, I'm no expert but were the officers African-American? I thought they could only rise to non-commisioned officer ranks.

I think in WW2 black officers could only reach captain or major, and could barely hold command of units.  There are plenty of lower-level officers, though.  In the 92nd Infantry Division, two black 1st Lieutenants received the Medal of Honor, one of them posthumously, and both of them in 1997.

I've noticed a dilemma in making a gift for a friend that I was missing something important for his MiG-29...the Russian AA-12 Adder missile.  I was THIS close to requesting it from someone, but I didn't want to get in trouble over the details of the missile.  So...

...I made an attempt myself.  The top two missiles here are the AA-10 and AA-11, made by others, and the bottom two are my attempts at the AA-12 Adder missile in both forms.  Let me know if it needs changing.

Weekly Update:  Not much of a change.  I've been stuck at trying to make the Magach 1 (M48A1 Patton), and it's a pain in the butt to get the details down right.  Hopefully, I got the whole week to finish it off.  So for now I'm only posting a list of the top 5 things I'm working on.

Magach 1
US 92nd Infantry Division Soldiers
US 442nd Infantry Regiment
Sayeret Mat'Kal A-Team (either 6-Day War to Yom Kippur War)
US 758th Tank Battalion

I've realized I did some weapons, and I want to have your opinions on them.  Here they are:

Here's a WIP of a Magach 1.  I know a Magach 1 is the designation for an M48A1, and this picture is actually a modified M48A3, which is what a Magach 5 would be with ERA armor.  You think this could pass as a Magach 1?

Weekly Update:  No change.  But I remembered I'm doing a Magach 1, and the Magach 3 would be with Blazer ERA armor.

Finally, some work done on some US segregated units of WW2.  The general 92nd Infantry Division and the 442nd Infantry Regiment, part of 92nd Infantry Division.

Weekly Update:  No real change, sorry.  I always tend to be rather slow.

Update:  Yes I'm still alive, and yes I haven't completed anything new for the past few weeks.  I'm still on Operation Thunderbolt and the segregated weapons platoons, but I got a new quick project to do:  Code Talkers!  Yep, the Cherokee & the Choctaw of World War 1, and the Navajo, Comanche, Meskwaki, & Basque (between Spain & France) of World War 2.  This one should be easy.
