This is my first experience of a group build and I've been looking forwards to this ever since it got through the Bunfight. Initially I was a little undecided what to build as I am in the process of building a representation of all the main British AFV's. I guess technically the Firefly can be claimed as British even though it is really an adaptation of the M4. I do intend to work my way through the lend/lease vehicles as well so the Firefly fits in nicely with my plans. My other option was to build the Miniart Grant Mk.I just because having just completed the Centurion and with a Charioteer and a Cromwell in the building process this will be my fourth model finished in SCC No.15 Olive Drab, but I hope practice makes perfect. I have had this one in my stash since its release and from what I gather it's a very nice kit. Looking in the box and glancing through the instructions it certainly looks as though the quality is very good and aftermarket shouldn't be required. At the moment I haven't found a particular subject that I want to model. I would like to show the practice of counter shading the 17pdr to disguise its length, as seen on the photo below, however most of the photos I could find of this practice seem to be on Polish, Canadian or South African run tanks. Does anyone know if the British did this to their tanks? I just need to tidy-up my work room and hopefully I can get started. Didn't take too long, and it does feel good to have a tidy work space.
