Tamiya's still superb wee Universal Carrier:


























Built pretty much from the box with just some 'tarps' and an Italeri 'Boys' rifle from the stash. Markings are from Star-Decal (35-C-1148) - which are a quite thick in my opinion - for a vehicle from the 19th Bt. 2nd NZ Divn' in late '41 / early '42. Not too much else to say, the 'Caunter' colours are 'home brewed' using so many other folks builds as reference and the always (un)reliable Mk.1 eyeball method. Not too shabby for a 43 year old kit... as ever all outrage, questions and comments welcomed.

For all the ancient kits failings (thickness etc) it still looks cracking when built and painted well, which it is here.

One everyone should have on their shelf I reckon, such a key part of afv history.

Great modelling but you'd better get the left hand track tension checked before there is an accident.

Gee Ian, you're getting gooderer and gooderer with you wear and weathering on models. The new looking MG looks a bit out of place on the vehicle but otherwise, a cracking effort.
