THREE NORTH AFRICA STALWARTS 1941

Postby builder76 » Wed Feb 28, 2018 11:05 pm

Hi Guys,
I have been trying to revamp/refurbish my model workshop recently, and came across a dio I had completed a few years ago.
The dio was meant to be representative of the North Africa theatre, featuring THREE stalwarts of the 8th army North Africa desert campaign about 1941,
(1) Matilda Mk 111 ,(2) M3 Honey, & (3 ) the universal carrier Bren Gun Carrier,
I decided to put all three in one dio; replenishing their need for supplies at one of the many desert sites.
I hope my dio goes someway to conveying that .

John
