Despite my intention to resist moving into 1/48, the release of the new Tamiya British Infantry set in this scale, plus the announced release of the cut down Cromwell, have persuaded me to set my concerns aside and let fly with the tools. The result: a decent (nothing more) Universal Carrier in quarter scale, and a good exercise in photo-etch use and future varnishing. The most serendipitious result was the discovery that Tamiya weathering pigments make drybrushing a thing of the past. I am incredibly pleased about this.
Anyway, pics in the gallery.
