  1. Hi Ex-boy, It has been established that BEN MACDHUI is a Sherman V of 2nd Fife and Forfar Yeomanry, 11th Armoured Division. Cheers Kevin
  2. Hi Rob, 1FFY is 8020 Cheers Kevin
  3. Hi Simon, Thank you for the confirmation of the mobilization number. I am not yet convinced that the circled area is 004? the first digit when enlarged looks like the letter U rather than 0. Good to see some movement on the Mk I Daimler. Any clues as to a release date? Cheers Kevin
  4. Does anyone by chance happen to know the mobilization number for 2nd Fife and Forfar Yeomanry? Reason for the question is trying to identify the owners of the attached. Current theory is 3 RTR as possible mob is 0042 which is partially visible ? Any help or suggestions appreciated. The screenshot is from War Pictorial News No. 169 courtesy of the Imperial War Museum archives.CheersKevin
  5. Hi Dai, Never joined the services myself, but that is another story, just a son of a gunner. My late father finished as a WOII with 210 Battery, 104 LAD. He was like a fish out of water after 2 years boys service 26 years regular and 4 years TA. Modelling was not his thing not military stuff anyway. I like your kits, the dio is very impressive something I have never done due to space and number of kits and keeping the peace with 'er indoors. I just use that wall/gateway as a backdrop to photograph the models. All my models are WWII examples I could never get into early or post war stuff, space finances and a lack of knowledge/references being my excuse. I too have some of the kits you mention, the Scammell, Sherman ARV, Diamond T, even a couple of M31's ( Calbre 35 conv and the Takom kit ) somewhere. You asked about the tool boxes and tools. They come from various kits over the years, Italeri, Tamiya, AA, and lately MiniArt do a set with PE tools I also got a set from I think it was Passion Models which is another great PE set of tools. Cheers Kevin

  13. Not sure if this is the correct forum but I have been sent this photo of what is said to be a WW2 photo of a tow cable from a Challenger. I have not seen one of these before. Can anyone confirm or have a clear image? Thanks for any help. Cheers Kevin
  14. Hi, Thanks for the additional crew names, I will add them to the crew name list against this tank. I am still searching for where I got Sgt. Tibbles name. I thought I had found Achilles in a film on the IWM film collection but it was from 2nd Northamptonshire Yeomanry. I will check all the individual Cromwell photos but it think I have done that once already. I will try the British Pathe and Critical Past sites. If I find it I will let you know. The reason I chose Achilles from 1st Royal Tank Regiment is that I like to use names from my database and fancied something different from the options provided for the Airfix kit. As I don't have a photo as yet I cannot confirm that the location of the name on the front and the census number on the turret side are correct. Cheers Kevin
