NEW CONTENT AFTER ALL THESE YEARS DUE TO FAN REQUESTS: CHECK OUT THE 28MM and 15MM WARGAMING/Kriegspeiler FIGURES... all painted by me for use by the B.O.G. Historical Gaming Club of Western Massachusetts. Stay Tuned More to Come- Joe C
OOPS...This Website system has changed to become the clunkiest system I have ever used... hard to upload photos into sections, photos come in upside down etc.... very frustrating... I will attempt to figure out their awful system of updating... Their new system also deleted my earlier background graphics to this new "UPC Bar code-like" design. Since their customer support is practically non-existent or so complicated that it is useless it may take some time to figure it out. I have tons of new material to share... but will have to wait until someone helps me figure this stupid system out....
This website contains photographs of Joe Carvalho's collection of military figures. Each figure has been hand-painted by Carvalho over the past 32 years. Each uniform is based upon the uniforms actually used during the period depicted in the various diorama's. Figures in 54mm scale were produced by a wide range of makers from the United States, Europe, Latin America, and Asia. The most prominent makers are Marx, Britains, Accurate, Imex, Classic Toy Soldiers, Barzso, Conte Collectibles, BMC, San Diego Toy Soldier Company, Starlux, Dulcop, Reamsa, Timpo, Revell, Call to Arms, Replicants, Herald, Crecent, Charbens, Lonestar, Historex, Italeri, Ideal, Marxmen, HAT, Armies in Plastic, and Jason Pope's Plastic Underground figures. Viewers familiar with these makers will notice a number of "conversions" of various figures created by Carvalho in order to increase the diverse look of the individual soldiers or to create certain poses which enhance the "story-telling" of a particular diorama. All photographs on this website are by Joseph Carvalho. Add this site to your "favorites" and check in every week for new photos.
This site is dedicated to all those brave souls who march off to war for their country and kin. You will note that the following dioramas depict those who actually had to fight these wars...not the troublemakers who started them in the first place....they were almost never seen on the front lines!
