    The Matador "GAZALA" is the AFV Club mid production, the 5.5" medium is by Accurate Armour and is my representation of the photo in Taylor / Hodges - British Military Markings 1939 - 1945.
    The C15TA is by Mirror Models and is based on a photo of one used by 1CACR.
    "STALLION" is the LVT 2 by Italeri with the figures by Tamiya this is from a British Pathe still and if I recall the boarding troops were Canadians,

    Correct Kevin: see http://ww2talk.com/forums/topic/57015-3rd-cdn-infantry-division-veritable/

    Great model of the LVT2. Wonder if you could post some more images of it in the 3rd Cdn infantry div Veritable thread.

    Here are some Airborne Jeeps in the same scale. The one towing the trailer along with the one with trailer and pack 75mm howitzer are by Bronco and the 2 recce Jeeps are conversions from old Tamiya Jeeps.
    Hope you like them.

    Cheers

    Well done Kevin.....great job of building and painting and I'm partial to the Matador and 5.5". One little point is that the gun barrel should be elevated as when in convoy, it was done to prevent following trucks having their windshields pierced by the barrel of the one in front.

    Cheers,

    I like those Kevin. In particular I like the LVT. It is a nice idea to recreate scenes from photos.

    Neil is correct about the 5.5". The breech was clamped to the trail when being towed. This prevented movement as well as keeping it from windscreens.

    Hello Mike,

    Thanks for nice comments. I always try and mark up my models as accurate as possible and use photographs as a reference point.
    I take your and Neil's point about the 5.5" and will correct it. Thank you.

    Cheers

    Kevin
