Good to see Gary's British Grant continue to develop from Cambridge at the club night last night. Here perhaps is a suitable stowage set;

Thanks Mark, nah can't justify spending out on a set of those, I'll just make them myself out of odds and ends ;)
Give's me some ideas of what to make though, cheers.

The set shows some of the items, I would add flimsy water cans, personal packs, and a couple of items on the turret roof to show the crew occupying the vehicle. Along with at least one crew figure.

Yeah that's along the lines of what I was thinking, it's a long way off yet.

Personal packs and bedrolls were commonly hung from the racks that runs along both sides of the track guards. The BD set has a camo net there.

Here's the photos Mikey took on Thursday, not a lot of progress since then, just working on the wheels then it's back to the weathering. There's not a lot of weathering been done in these photos other than a pin wash on the lower hull and a bit of colour dragging (modulation), nothing's been done to the turret (other than rejoin the two halves).

Nice start - one of my favourite schemes. Have the same scheme to paint on my Mirage 1/72 Grant kit - think that is why it has been sitting in the "finished and ready for paint pile" for so long.

Make sure you deal to the silvering on that rightside serial decal... ;)

It was on the to do list, I'm actually going to scrub it off or cover it up with luggage so wasn't too fussed about it.
