Had a few dramas with this lot of figures. First there was the accidental posting without photos – before they were even finished! Then the dumb ba$%#rd I am had put the khaki undercoat Tamiya TS3 lid on the TS80 matt varnish! So when I went to varnish them instead of a clear varnish they ended up with a nice coat of khaki! Fortunately only a few were damaged, but this put me back a day with finishing the section!
Fortunately this is the last Australian Jungle Division sections (but not the last of my Australians).
The Australian Jungle Division re-organisation was designed with two purposes in mind – to release man power to take advantage of the post war economic boom, and to purpose design a unit structure more suited and more flexible for jungle warfare.

More Jungle Division to follow.
Looking good Dave. Nightmare about the varnish. Maybe that is how army painter quick dip was invented? I once put a clear varnish cap on a white spray can… I swore, lots!

Glad to see I am not alone!
Oh no, “varnished” with regular paint! I haven’t done that one yet! They turned out good though!

Oh damn. That’s a pretty terrible kind of varnish mishap. Good to hear the damage wasn’t too bad and recoverable though – and the finished troops look great.
