I am building a collection of theTakom's M3 series, all five btw. When I started to do some painting the Grant just happen to be up front.
Out of no where Ian jumps in strongly asking for the 7th AD paint scheme and since he said Please Five Times,he even furnished a picture, I searched the net to find out just who was the 7th AD.
Long story short,I settled on a paint scheme I thought would do the 7th justice,one that was present at the battle of Al-Gazala.

I got the basic base colors on yesterday. Light Stone,Green Khaki with Off White outline.

You can't operate in the desert without the sun playing havoc on the paint job.

This could get complicated, Unky Tony, but if you ever want a car built (or an aircraft) you should let me know !!

OK Ian beside the two crew members needing finished the Grant is complete for fear of going overboard,"Less is More".

Superb result Tony. One of my favourite schemes on the Grant. I still have fond memories of building the old 1/32 Monogram kit in this scheme way back in the day.
