    Thanks for some excellent Information.

    I was most impressed regarding the use of 14" square solid stations as supports and not the usual box or welded girders.

    They surely weighed a great deal!!

    hi fella's
    just thought i'd let you know that there has been a change of plan for the charioteer I was going to convert back to Cromwell, the tank was sold a few months back and the new owner wants me to restore it back to charioteer spec which will make my life a little easier :)
    few pics of the ex finnish charioteer I converted back to Cromwell (driving into the yard as a charioteer and back out again a Cromwell) and the ex Lebanese tank I am working on now.

    hi tom

    the whole restoration is on HMVF if you want to follow the build as it progresses.

    Hi all,

    Hope you don't mind me reviving this discussion. Later this summer a 1/48 resin conversion company is making a Charioteer conversion kit I have signed up to buy. I was recently reading "Warpaint" vol 3 and it got me thinking about how to mark my future Charioteer, and then I found this thread.

    - to Rick Wedlock, what is "HMVF" and how could I go about seeing your work?
    - to the general group, does anyone know what (Territorial Army) units received Charioteers?
    - would they actually have been painted DBG? Were the Cromwells already DBG or might they still have been in SCC15?

    (edit: just found the HMVF :))
