I built one of these recently as a MKI and liked it so much I bought another. The only disappointing part was the decal sheet.
I'm undecided whether to build the next one as a MKII or the so called CS version of the MKI where the two pounder and 3 inch howitzer were swopped.

A beautifully built model. But one point; from late 1941 SCC2 (brown) was the basic colour for new builts and repaints. This replaced the Khaki Green 3 colour previously in use that had ceased production and was being phased out. SCC2 came into use as the basic colour of all vehicles and AFVs by late 1941 and remained until early 1944. Many of the vehicles on D-Day were still brown.
I should perhaps add that the source is MTP 46/ parts 3, 4 & 4A, Painting of Mechanical Transport' November 1941.
