    Here is my little vignette comprising Ian Armstrong's Karrier KT4 Spider with Milicast 25 Pounder and Limber and the AB Figures crew. The crew comes as an eight pack but as crew were normally only 6, only 6 were finished.
    It represents a gun of the 25th Field Regt - 4th Indian Division in North Africa during Operation Crusader in 1941.
    Vehicle markings were from Peter Marshall, Aleran and the spares box and the inspiration came from friends on the Society of Gentlemen Wargamers site and specifically a photo of this particular "Spider" kindly provided by Mike Starmer.

    Very nice indeed Neil.

    25 Field went on to become an "Army" Corps Field Regt with 8AGRA in NW Europe 44/45.

    Thanks Rob...I'm still a little fuzzy on the actual ethnicity make-up of the rank and file at the period I modelled. I painted two of the crew as Indian troops as there was a mixture at this early stage as I understand it.
