Built and painted straight out of the box/packet, some added stowage.
These will probably become Yorkshire Yeomanry in one of our Christmas games

Great paint job. I like the Frontline RR Armoured Car. The change of MG in turret is not one I have tried.

The one in the turret was broken, so I had to improvise ;)

Richard,
I have obviously been more lucky as bought five from Frontline and none broken! But resin is fragile.

Both A/Cs came as swaps from that lovely man Alan Hamilton (for planes I thinK??)

So he may have owned the Frontline rolls for a while, it has certainly been kicking around my cupboard for nearly a year, so i may have caused the damage :oops:
