Anzac Day 2014- Op STABILISE, Dili 1999

Operation STABILISE was the Australian-led deployment of International Force East Timor (INTERFET) in 1999. Here's a 54mm figure I painted in October 1999. I think it's a Mike Broadbent sculpt, to which I added sunnies and a CamelPak.

Interfet by Mark Russell
Rick Amor was one of the Official War Artists. Here is his work Rural Destruction, and some studies (via the Australian War Memorial).

Rural destruction
Lest we forget.


  1. Very nice work, love the inscriptions on the wall and the paint job!

  2. Very nice model Sir! We will remember them.

  3. Cracking diorama and well remembered.

  4. My god your bringing back old times now. How long since that was behind the bar at Darlington? Memories of many very full ANZAC Days of the past....

    1. You've got actual memories? I've got a hazy blur from the fumes of Brasso and Parade Gloss...
