Matilda Mk II

Base Model: Italeri Matilda Mk II
Donor Model: Airfix Matilda Hedgehog
Scale: 1/72 , 1/76

Tricky to make this one , the wheel bogies are a bugger ! Based on Matildas used by the Aussies in New Guinea , scratch built an anti mine mesh screen for the rear deck out of flyscreen , left the fuel tank off
Nearly cut the barrel off trimming the sprue bit doh !
Painted in Olive Drab and given the black wash treatment , rusty bits came out nice on this one , I'll weather it some more when it goes on a dio
Decals pinched from the Airfix Hedgehog kit , they fit ok with a tweak or 2
