Well here goes nothing,

Here are my Staghounds (by a local manufacturer called Small Scale armour, OOP for some time) crewed with some SHQ british tank commanders and accompanied by a Cromwell Models Daimler SC and an AB Tankie having a brew.

Enjoy!







I tried a few new things in this project, including using Skytrex decals for the first time, hand painting the corps markings which look suspiciously like a scotty dog being riden by a mouse, rather than a Knight on his Charger and medical gauze netting with strips of tissue scrim.

Excuse the crowded scene, my Photo-shoot base set up needs to be upgraded for such group shots.

My first finnished project posted anywhere!

Cheers

Wow! They are great, and the closely packed scene is full of life! First pic is the best in my opinion. Great job done on these - I like them very much! The freehand painting of the markings is not to critisize... Very Happy

Excellent. Really nice - well done.

Hand painted markings are excellent - recognisable and well executed. We as modellers tond to be spoilt by modern digitally rendered decals when infact many vehicle markings were handpainted and stencilled - some by artizans - others by 'soldiers'...

Sadly - its also a trend that is carried over into 1:1 scale vehicle restorations of WWII vehicles - markings precision cut from vinyl by computer.

Tour markings are excellent - however the tea in toms mug needs more sugar!
