One of my favourite early war tanks, and the first one of these I have constructed
Cleaned up and undercoated on-sprue, though there was minimal flash anyway
An overly complicated running gear assembly given that much of it is unseen upon finish
This is a command platoon so I added a figure to the hatch
I left the fuel tank off as none of the others in my collection had one either, and to me it doesn't detract from the finish
Inspired by the finish I decided to repaint the other three I already had http://20thcenturywargames.blogspot.com.au/2012/05/matilda-iis.html turns out I was right in guessing they were Airfix models too
Decals from my spares bag, and for once all vehicles in the troop have similar markings
An excellent addition to my early war collection. The paintwork isn't quite right, but, as always, near enough for me.
