Cruiser Repaint

One of my favorite tanks, pity I only have two them for my early war collection. Long overdue for a repaint 

Cant remember who makes them, they are lead ones, SHQ maybe?

When I got them I didn't know anything about their colour scheme  or unit markings

Command platoon, crewman is a chopped down paratrooper

I found a small  bag of mixed decals in a garage sale in Brisbane a few days ago, and there were a few British tank marking in with them; from the JB/Airfix MkVIb I think

Together they form an under-strength company for CD3, might try pick up a couple of the resin ones Frontline has to offer, later this year


  1. I love the quirkiness of this tank, one of my favourites!

  2. I just can't get over how bad the tank is though!! I prefer the A10...even though it is an awful tank too.

  3. The Frontline ones are good value wargames models - I've a few, in Western Desert colours.

  4. Looking good. I'm with James, if I've got to command early war British, give me A-10's.

  5. I seem to remember using these to good effect just outside of Calais in 1940 Al.

    Nice repaint.

    1. One of the best games I've ever played mate!
