Thinking about a couple of 1:35 armour builds in the coming months and fancied building the Tamiya Matilda III/IV as an Aussie one with the Echelon decal set... not sure how much difference there was between the two versions whether it's just details or major re-building.
Can anybody give me a little advice here ??. Thanks in advance.
There is some scratch work I think, but nothing major. Your best bet is to find a vehicle among the google pictures you find and make adjustments according to that particular vehicle. PTO and green for particularly AU examples. Do you have the old or new kit?
Just had a look on my phone at google images "Australian Matilda tank". Lots of good examples. You have the option of adding forward tool boxes where the spare tracks are on the front fenders and the front mud flaps, and no rear spare fuel tanks. These actually did okay in the jungle, with top armour and the 2 pounder able to rip through anything the Japanese had.
