Good to see some more Braille here have not built the WWI as a adult,
I found the Airfix Vickers fun, I built the ACE one at the same time & gave that the North Africa sand shields & a flimsy can rack at the back
Love to see your Cromwell built up too
any more advances on that?
Thanks for the comments. I have a base coat on the WWI tanks and the Cromwell, but the Vickers is still on hold until I get around to mixing some Portland Stone for the base. They are all on the backburner at the moment while I finish a winged thing. Will post some pics soon.
Good stuff. Your timing is right for the WW1 tanks too, as we approach the Centennial of the commencement of the Great War.
Forgive my ignorance, but was E Battalion and the Mk 1 tank "Kia ora" part of NZ's First Expeditionary Force?
My preference - WW2 RNZAF & Pacific Theatre, Allied & Axis, ETO, Mediterranean, AFV & figures
I enjoy doing research
Thanks Wally. As far as the attachment to E Battalion goes, I couldn't say. So the story goes, one of the Majors in E Batt. was a kiwi, and named her Kia Ora. How true that is, I'm not sure, and am also not sure of other attachment details.
