Welcome to my blog. I have upwards of 100 projects in various stages of incompletion or total abandonment, so you may well find something of interest. I try to post about everything I do, not just what goes according to plan, so it's a blog all about stumbling along in a roughly forward direction rather than reaching the destination, with lots of ideas for potential projects that will probably never see the light of day!

I re-discovered this site yesterday whilst looking for information on the 8th Armoured Brigade and it's three Sherman equipped regiments. It's a really useful site and very well worth a look if you're trying to find your way through the multivarious types of Sherman used by the British in North West Europe and elsewhere.
I now have enough HAT armoufast Sherman M4's, M4A2's and Fireflys to build two or three squadrons of tanks for the 4/7th Dragoon Guards, although they might not be entirely accurate. I'm going to do quite a lot of covering up with camo netting, stowage and other gubbins, so the rivet counters won't be too upset.
There are some excellent photos of the sort of stowage I'm going to try to model here:
