Re: Crusader I and II

Thanks, I just found an image that confirms a slide back. It shows a tank at the repair depot and it's a shot looking down on the tank.

Re: Crusader I and II

Thanks, sliding would be a lot easier to magnetize and does make sense based on the pictures.

Going to Bovington for the Q&A would be a bit of a challenge for me.

Crusader I and II

I have the 15mm FOW Crusaders and I'm trying to figure out how the hatch opened. Was it hinged at the front, the back, or did it slide backwards? In most pictures, it's hard to see as it is completely open and usually you have a bunch of people sitting on the turret top with their legs in the hatch....

Re: Colour Pictures of British Infantry & Tanks

Nice photos but I would not be trying to match these or any other 'colour' photos from WW2 on my miniatures YMMV True about colour matching, but they are still good for relative shades. For vehicles, I noticed a couple of things: the presence of a "cammo" scheme on a couple of vehicles and a defini...

Re: Colour Pictures of British Infantry & Tanks

The tank driving on the side of the road also looks like it has a cammo pattern. Either that or someone did a selective wash of the tank before driving around for a bit.

Re: Terrain board and 2mm figures

Great work Siggian. Where next? Gettysburg? CarlL Thanks Carl. If I do this again (and that won't be for quite a while, it would be for Antietam, because I have the II Corps painted for the Union according to the OOB for that battle. If I have been smart, I will have painted the opposing Confederat...
