Oh by the way I moved house again....chased away by villagers with pitch forks due to the metal bolts in my neck....
Just joking, I've finished renovating the old house, whilst the new house...(which is old) needs a lot of repair work on it, so no more house moves in the near future....unless this one falls down of course.
8th Battalion Rifle brigade 11th Armoured Division 1944-1945;
The Infantry M5 Half-tracks:
I decided they can have 0.50 calibre machine gun each as I came across a photo of the 8th Battalion Rifle Brigade in Normandy 1944 where the M5 they're using clearly has a gun mount on it although covered with a tarpaulin.
I need an M3A1 scout car for the platoon HQ probably a resin model from that excellent manufacturer Diewaffenkammer.
Next I managed to upgrade the Daimler Dingo scout car with a couple of crewmen.
And a Daimler Mk 1 armed with a 2 pounder gun (40mm calibre) with an armour penetration of up to 53mm if you're lucky.
Both these armoured cars will be attached to the company HQ for the upcoming 1944-45 WW2 European campaign. They represent 'the Inns of Court Regiment' armoured car squadron.
And finally a mark IV Cromwell tank representing the 2nd Northants Yeomanry Divisional Reconnaissance Regiment. I found a picture on Google which shows the tanks name as 'Oliver' so I suppose that would be appropriate for a Cromwell Tank!. (Oliver Cromwell being a prominent English historical figure).
The 2nd Northants were replaced due to heavy losses by the 15th/18th King's Royal Hussars also equipped with Cromwell tanks.
Next I hoping to complete the remaining German armour and vehicles.
Anyhow All the Best,
