  1. Here is a recently completed Quad Mk II with a 4.5" Howitzer and #26 Limber. Although the Quad is listed as a Mk I/II by Milicast, it has the smaller wheels and added windows of a Mk III. The wheels were swapped for suitably altered Guy Ant wheels also from Milicast, the windows were filled in (unfortunately I realized the window problem after initial painting) and a gun platform rack was scratch built. Additional details were also added including wipers and mirrors from Dan Taylor Models, and the transfers came from the spares box (Aleran and Starmers Armour). Figures (including the driver) a
  2. This is absolutely first rate modelling! The detail is amazing and the Triffid radio bank and cable reels are totally awesome. Keep the photos coming. Cheers, Neil
  3. Beautiful work on this....look forward to more photos. It definitely could me mistaken for 1:1. Cheers, Neil
  4. Fantastic detail on this, Nige.....you must be replicating every nut and bolt.:wow: Cheers, Neil
  5. Thanks, Tony....I have some photos showing these in action without any tilts so decided to do mine that way. The cover would hide some of the detail in the rear but maybe, one day..... Cheers, Neil
  6. Hello Simon, First let me apologize for not responding sooner. I plain didn't see your nice comments and questions until now. Yes, the tires were modified using .010x.020 plastic strip and I have done enough, that I can do one tire in roughly 40 mins. It is worth the effort, I think. As far as plans for the trailer, I did have them from an old Airfix Magazine (1979) which had the older tractor and trailer. I believe they are John Church plans and are still available. When the BEF went to France, they initially had only this type of trailer until later in the war when the standard 20 ton re
  7. Here is my Bedford QL Portee wearing the markings of the Left Flank Company - 2nd Bn Scots Guards - 201st Guards Motor Brigade - 1st Armoured Div in Libya 1942. The chassis and cab are a modified Airfix QLT with the body scratch-built. The 6 Pdr A/T Gun is from Milicast, the transfers are from Aleran and P/E from Dan Taylor Models (mirrors and wipers) and Hauler (Sand channels). Tarps are tissue, helmet and rifles from Bull Models. Cheers, Neil

  9. Excellent scratch-building Nige.....the detail is simply amazing. I can't wait to see the finished result. Cheers, Neil
  10. A nice touching story, Robin and the models look really great to me. They will be keepers. Cheers, Neil
  11. Thank you for your kind words, Ed. I will send you information on what I did if you would like to send your e-mail address in a Private Message. Spasibo! Cheers, Neil
  12. Hi Folks. Here is my completed Guy Quad Ant with 18 Pdr (MP Conversion) and #29 Limber. It was inspired by a photo of an abandoned one in Cassel France in May of 1940 and is identified as belonging to the 140th (5th London) RA (TA) Field Regt - 1 Corps. It is being checked out by two Wehrmacht folks as potential "beute" booty for German use. It is a drastically converted Airfix Morris Quad with Matador Models 18 Pdr and Limber. The figures are Preiser. Hope you like it. Cheers, Neil
  13. Cheers, Ted.....glad to be of help. If I can be of further assistance, please let me know. Regards, Neil
  14. Hi Ted, Thanks for your nice comment. The Karrier was mastered by a couple of wargamers for their own purposes but are actually very good models and they made them available to other folks on the site. I think DaveC made the actual master for the vehicle. Here is the thread where Ian explains the details. http://www.societyofgentlemengamers.org/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=3012 If you are interested, I could p/m you his e-mail address. Cheers, Neil
  15. Here is my little vignette comprising Ian Armstrong's Karrier KT4 Spider with Milicast 25 Pounder and Limber and the AB Figures crew. The crew comes as an eight pack but as crew were normally only 6, only 6 were finished. It represents a gun of the 25th Field Regt - 4th Indian Division in North Africa during Operation Crusader in 1941. Vehicle markings were from Peter Marshall, Aleran and the spares box and the inspiration came from friends on the Society of Gentlemen Wargamers site and specifically a photo of this particular "Spider" kindly provided by Mike Starmer. Cheers, Neil
