Neat, that Scammell is a very cool looking vehicle! 

 

Not sure if I should call it a 'lorry' or a 'truck'. I notice the instructions say 'tractor.'

Its ruggedness appeals to me. I watched an old type BBC film on YouTube about the Scammell and my interest was tweaked and it was added to the to build pile. It was a struggle to decide to go with it or the Quad gun tractor. I'm going to enjoy this.

Hey Wayne, very cool! Some really nice armoured cars showing up here! 

I got a crew set I ordered for my Comet and hopefully Conqueror (I haven't checked to make sure the uniforms are right for the era yet). And a couple bottles of British bronze green that hopefully should work for both tanks. Still not sure when I can actually restart on the Comet in earnest though.

Hi Bish, no, I don't think I've seen his build. I guess I'll have to look it up for ideas!

Hello Bish,

Would the Westland Sea King Mk 4, ZA298, be an option?

Chad: Looks great! You're making great progress and looks to be a neat clean build. Looking forward to seeing the paint on. 

Bish: Thanks. Going to look around a little more. If they don't suit no biggie, I've got lots of other stuff they will work with.

Right,

the only references I could find to the Sea King was under RN command so I take it that this is out.

Interesting subject though.

 

Have a Bronco Staghound (Canadian late) in the stash that could probably be brough to BA standards.

 

 

But is is maybe rather a SOD contender, had it since 2010 (me thinks) and have fitted upper and lower hull + the 2 part wheels and some other 2 part assemblies like fuel drums.

Still a far bit to go to 20% completion though.

 

 

Also found the Humber Armoured car Mk.IV, from Bronco in the cellar.

This one is a special edition (1 out of 3999) with full interior and transparent & standard hull parts (CB35081SP).

Daunting...

If I would cut sprue on this one I might finnish in 2030.

Anyway - it is up for grabs...

 

With regards

Svenne

Hi Chad,
That was amazingly quick, very good progress and I m sure will look great under paint!
Interested in your view on the Dragon soft plastic tires?

Because it was a part of the CHF and used to support the Marines, yep, that is an option.

Svenne, put you down as a TBD. Any of those 3 subjects would be fine, so just let me know what you going for, if not all 3 Wink

That tulip equipped Staghound is interesting.  Does this mean Canadian marked equipment is accepable?

I think he was planning on converting it to British Army standards. But if those Candian units are under British command, then thats fine. So for example, Candian forces in NW Europe in 44/45 would be fine.

Hi,

Yes, my original thaught was to skip the rocket rails and apply other changes required to build a regular BA vehicle.

But...

From the instruction leaflet I quote:

"...some cars of the 12th Manitoba Dragoons were fitted with launch rails to fire aircraft rockets.

The 12th Manitoba Dragoons was the Armoured car Regiment attached to Canadian 2nd Corps fighting in N.W. Europe. The Rocket launchers were probably fitted in the winter of 1944/45 as the regiment patrolled the banks of the Maas river in Holland."

 

With regards

Svenne

So that would be fine as it is Svenne if you wanted to build that for the GB.

Right on, if that's the case, then tentatively put me down for a 1/35 Humber Scout Car.  At least the vehicle is of British design/construction,  but will be in Canadian markings at around the time of Normandy.

Jack

Svenne, sorry, i think we were cross posting so i missed your post about the Staghound, now got you added. Out of interest, what Sea King kit are you getting?

Jack, really looking forward to that. I saw the kit a while back and thought it doesn't look like it is a WW2 vehicle, i really like the shape of it.

Excellent choice Jack,
Bronco acually released one with Michael Caine (supposedly) depicted as the commander from the movie "One bridge to far".

Never managed to get my hands on that.

Very nice kit, a little gem!

Good luck!
