Creating and Painting early BSAP, PATU, and RR figures
1 box of Perry Miniatures 28mm plastic 8th Army Figures.
Metal slouch hats.
For the BSAP figures I cut off back straps and some water bottles and 44 ammo pouches. I scraped off the gaiters leaving socks.
Thus the Perry figures 28mm plastic miniatures gave me early BSAP and PATU armed with 303s with shorts and I added miliput to create trousers. Trimmed off webbing where necessary.
I purchased soft hats and peaked cap heads from Gripping Beast WW1 range.
Note the tracker in slouch hat and trousers with 303. Slouch hat from the Perry Figures 28mm range.
Early PATU figures had 44 packs attached. The 44 packs were from the Perry Miniatures range. Trimmed metal slouch hats with modelling clippers and filed with fine file the top and edges to make it look like a bush hat.
Rhodesia Regiment figures.
Early Rhodesia Regiment (RR) figures with Bren guns were from the Perry 8th Army Plastic figures range. Added trousers with miliput. Cut and trimmed Perry Miniatures slouch hats to make bush hats. Added 44 packs from the Perry Miniatures range.
Cut and trimmed Bren guns to create different stances with the weapon.
