  1. Hi Tappie, thanks for posting these, they look good, especially the weathering, but a bit more info about the models would be appreciated by those, like me, who are a little ignorant about such things.

    • My apologies. The first photo from left to right is a M3 Honey Stuart with early turret. The cammo scheme is pale stone, slate grey and desert yellow. Next to the Honey is a M4 Sherman in desert yellow. The 2nd picture is a Quad with 25 pounder gun and limber (cassion) hitched up as in a convoy. Next is a Dingo scout car used primarily for recon duties and running messages. Next a Crusader tank, at some point the mainstay of the Eigth Army tank corps. The last picture has a Chevrolet truck and a Universal Bren Gun Carrier. The Bren carrier is painted in the same scheme as the Honey. Thankis for the kind words. I need to take better pictures.

  2. Tappie, thanks for showing us your great collection of N. African campaign vehicles.
    Is that a Crusader I see?
    I really like the Dingo weathering, and the pose of the Bren/Universal Carrier driver, and the blue in the scheme.
    Good looking 25 pounder with prime mover and caisson, too.
    All my favorites, absent a Matilda. Just something about her, that appeals.
