After painting up the last lot of vehicles an idea formed around a tank. But which one, in 28mm they can be quite pricey. It was then that a club member John mention that the James Bond range of vehicles in 1/50th scale and it included a tank in the range. So a quick scan on a well known auction site and I picked up the T55 tank for a princely sum of £8.50.
Now as our games tend to be set in Africa and the Middle east, the green paint job did not seem appropriate.
So I decided on a quick black undercoat and layered up with a U.S. drab brown and desert sand. I'm more than happy with the result.
I'm now think my Germans may need a Puma or two to balance the games out.
