Otter Light Reconnaissance Car

Post by Fire-at-Will »

Very much an impulse buy when I saw it in the Early War Miniatures damaged remnants bin at York. I've patched up the four wheels and scratch built a turret.

I've given it markings for the 43rd Wessex Division to fit with the rest of my forces, but I don't know if they actually used any.

For those interested the turret was created with a cone of thin plasticard fitted and cut to shape. Then reinforced by a second layer and then the MG aperture cut out. The MG support was part of an old aircraft undercarriage.
What's the point of doing one period, when you can do them all.......... In life most people specialise so gradually they know more and more about less and less so eventually they know everything about nothing. I work on a broad front so eventually I'll know nothing about everything.

Nice work. Good to see something a bit out of the ordinary too.

Cheers Fred.
