Landing Craft WIP

I decided to scratch build a landing craft-supply vessel of the type common to the inter-war years and Second World War.  So I started with the basic hull pieces.  The black piece will be a Japanese style pilots shield.  The vessel is a bit of a cross between a USN Higgins Boat and a IJN Dai Hatsu.  The idea being it's a heavily used and modified unit that has seen years of service.
The wood flooring is in.
Side hulls are up.
Ribbing, pilots shield and engine vents.
Here's the ramp and smoke stack.
Read to load up.
From the pilots view.
The scale is for 28mm pieces like this one.
Ready for finishing touch ups and painting. Start to finish the construction took less than two days (thank goodness for college and pro football and instant replay-the perfect background for building game terrain like this).

The Golden Eagles-USAAF RC Elites

The 1st Flight USAAF RC (United States Army Air Force Rocket Corps), the "Golden Eagles" are the elite of the elite of the Rocket Corps (at least in the minds of the troopers of 1st Flight). Armed with automatic pistols and Tommy-Guns and equipped with the powerful Goddard-Post Rocket Pack, 1st Flight is ready to  deal with any situation.
Major Teddy Roosevelt III (to the right with his helmet off), pushes his men hard, and expects them behave like the elites they are at all times!  His motto for his men is, "1st in 1st to Win."
The 1st Flight consider themselves the no nonsense troopers of the USAAF RC.  They refer to the 2nd Flight "Red Hawks" as the "Glamor-boys" of the the sky.  This has lead to some hard feelings between the two flights, and a lot of completion between the two
The Golden Eagles are 28mm metal pieces from Pulp Figures.

Firepower for the Captain

Chi'n Ming is a metal 28mm piece from the Japanese line of Pulp Figures.
