Although I try to stop myself (“No, you don’t need PSC’s Panzer IVs, too — or their STG IIIs — or any of their Russian stuff!”), I keep buying more of their kits and will probably end up having collected all of them at some point.
My son previously posted his vision of the Italeri El Alamein Battle Set, in full battle mode. Here I have tried to create a more mundane scene around the station building, as well as a few shots of the British troops and vehicles that came in the set.
