This is my first build for 2018 and it bit of a 'niche subject'.  It's the PLASTIC SOLDIER COMPANY - 1/72 - Loyd Carrier with 6pdr gun and crew.  It was a lot of fun to do and though mainly OOB I did add some exhausts to the carrier and added a bit of detail to the breach of the gun.

 

Look closely because there are bonus points if you can spot the crew member that actually started life as an Airfix Commando :D

Here's the carrier without the tilt - which was just an 'experiment' - let's have a look what's inside...

The chap in the cap started out as an Airfix British Commando I believe - isn’t that the radio operator figure?

and the winner is...

...well done Phil - he thought you wouldn't recognise him in the cap ;)

I have just finished mine, only in a desert scheme, and I only did the hardware, no fella's.

 

Had to make the driving levers and seat backs, though.

 

Must remember to put the tilt on one of them. 

 

Just put some decals on them before I finally dirty them up a bit.

 

Far easier than the IBG Bren carriers of the same scale.  Still having nightmares over the individual track links.....
