    I just finished a 1/72 (yep, I know.....not my usual scale!!) model of an M14 of the Lake Superior Regt in Holland in 1945. It started out as an Italeri Quick Build and in friend and fellow modeler, Dave Rhodes' hands it became the basis for a master for which Dave made all the parts to do either an M5A1/M9A1 or and M14. From Dave it went to Pete Marshall at Aleran Minis who cast them and kindly sent me a copy of the M14. Thanks to both gents and as well Dick Harley who provided much information and who in co-operation with Ed Storey has recently authored an excellent article in the MAFVA Tankette about the IHC Halftracks in Canadian service. The figures are Dan Taylor Modelworks and came from Milicast. Stowage is from the spares box.

    You halftrack experts out there will likely notice the mine racks which were not common on the M14 but in the photo of the rear of the actual vehicle you can see jerrycans stowed in a rack so it was quite likely a field conversion/addition. I chose to mark it as the vehicle in the photo and Pete Marshall kindly provided the decals I needed.

    Cheers,

    Neil

    How is Ed Storey nowadays ? I used to correspond with him back in the early 90s.
    I swapped my Soviet tank crew hat I bought in Berlin with him for a book on Canadians in WW1.
    Wonder if he still has it.

    Thanks Owen and Clive for your always great comments and Owen, I really don't know Ed Storey. I do know Dick Harley who was the co-author of the Tankette article and didn't want to acknowledge one without the other. I could ask Dick as he would certainly know.

    Cheers,

    Neil
