I have decided I need to build a small 8th army force, having only the Axis, I need something for them to fight. So here is the start of another project. The infantry will be arriving soon from Plastic Soldier Company and then I will look at which force to build
I was given these 1/76th scale Vickers MKVI's on Saturday, after our Tobruk game. Two required for Thursday game.
I made the B variant. Started from kits yesterday, with stowage. I will see at a later date which unit to make, hence no decals. My Grants are sitting in the American car park and have never seen action in the 30 to 40 years I have had them, so maybe?
Undercoat of off white, then Skeleton Bone Contrast, Agrax Wash, heavy dry brush Humbrol Khaki Drill (72). Tracks Red Brown Tamiya 64, dry Brush Chain Mail, Dry Brush Earth and highlight Humbrol Khaki Drill (72).
