    I have been busy for a few months doing some masters but lately I did a little project of a Diamond T981 of 373rd TT Coy RASC with a Buffalo LVT IV of the 4th RTR. Thanks to Les Freathy for the DT, soft cab conversion and many photos, Ted Angus for assisting with proper ID and markings and Dave Rhodes for his great input along the way. The DT is Matchbox/Revell, with soft cab conversion and the Buffalo is a gussied up Airfix. Figures are Milicast. Decals are from Aleran and Mike Starmer.

    Cheers,

    Neil

    Another great diorama from you.

    Do you know if all versions of the 980/981 had ballast bodies? I thought there was a very limited number with cargo bodies but I can't find any information on them now.

    Thanks Dave.....I saw a reference to an 8 Ton model known as a T28 and T30 which appears to have been a cargo version but can find no photos.
