British Halftrack with crew & stowage

This particular model has been awaiting completion for quite some time- glad to have it finished.

It is a Ready to Roll resin halftrack which was given to me by my friend "the Red Rajah". It has had resin stowage from Black Dog added, an AB figures driver, and a Kelly's Heroes crew. I am quite pleased with the final look.
Weathered with drybrushing, MiG European Dust & a bit of chipping.

  1. Lovely work mate. Looks very lived in. I love the one squaddie in the back wearing the stocking cap. Bravo.
    Cheers,

  2. Nice work John. My US HT project seems to have stalled but I have saved some of your pics in case they might help me to figure out where some of my non-BD stowage should attach!

    Cheers, Dave

  3. Excellent - and this is obviously an outfit that likes to live high... :-) A display piece, or part of a wargames unit?

    1. Thanks mate, glad you like it. Might have to make some more stowage of my own next time as it can be quite expensive (good thing the halftrack was a gift) :)
