  1. I've not been active on my WIP's for a while, largely due to other projects, one being this little one. This is my S-Model Light Tank MK VI with Dan Taylor Modelworks etched brass add ons, to turret and side skirts. In 1/72 this is very small! The Caunter scheme was applied with lots of masking using AK paints from their Caunter scheme set. The three colours used (from six in the set) are Slate, Portland Stone and Silver Grey. I did find that straight from the bottle, the silver grey was not dissimilar to the Portland stone, so I darkened it slightly with some Russian Cockpit turquoise! Decals are a mixed bag from the spares box. I applied some light washes and weathering with artists oils and various AK and MIG products. The S-Model kits are quite basic but do seem accurate and have a lot of fine detail. Tracks are not separate, being moulded integral with the wheels. And it seems every S-Model 1/72 AFV kit contains two complete kits, so I have a second to build. I fancied an all sand earlier version without the side skirts, or possibly a green/black example from the BEF in France. I have a full size prototype for reference just 20 minutes up the road in Bovington. The Caunter scheme, photographs quite differently in some lights: A couple of shots to show it's size, taken during construction/painting: This one shows S-Model attention to fine detail. And this shot was taken with a same scale Scimitar (by ACE) which is also close to finishing (will do an RFI for that also) And finally these shots show what to me is quite a significant difference between 1/76 and 1/72 scale. My two MB models MK VI's (1/76) with the S-Model (1/72) for comparison. I've heard people suggest that the two scales are so similar, the differences do not matter but to me they do, certainly if they were being displayed together in some sort of diorama. Comments and questions, good, bad or indifferent welcome! Thanks for looking Terry
