15mm Jackal II Corgi conversion

In the same multi-vehicle Corgi pack as the Landrovers, you get a relatively decent model of the Jackel II as well.  This model seems pretty good, although I think the two roll bars are an error and there should only be one central bar between the driver and co-driver/gunner.  I sourced some seated figures in berets from Peterpig's AK-47 range and some standing gunners, which included beret-wearing figures with .50 cal HMGs and bare headed gunners with MMGs.

This pair of vehicles has crew painted up in green berets to represent Royal Marine vehicles, one .50 cal and one MMG.  The vehicles were undercoated light grey and painted Iraqi Sand.  Fuel cans were painted NATO green.  Figures are light brown with English Uniform spots and boots, washed with strong tone ink and highlighted in Iraqi Sand.

The other pair of vehicles with British Para crews.

All four vehicles.

These still need a bit of detailing to finish off, but they are pretty much ready to make an appearance on the wargames table.

As ever, thanks for looking. It's Christmas Eve, so if you are celebrating, have a Very Happy Christmas, if not, Season's Greetings to you!  I'm hoping Santa will be bringing me a few useful odds and ends.  Hope you are all where you want to be and all get something nice this Christmas.  We should also spare a thought for those men and women not at home for the holidays, wherever they are.  Have a good one!


  1. Good work Andy (as always).

  4. Hi Richard, try a Tesco Extra for the Corgi stuff. They have sets of emergency, agricultural and military vehicles as well as a good selection of Matchbox vehicles.
    Cheers, Andy
