Hi Dmitriy:
I have a few pics of the LRDG Chev in the Imperial War Museum. It may be of some use to you.

Hi Dmitriy,

Off to a cracking start, nice work. Only observation is you have used a No 4 Rifle and in the early war period this is more likely to have been a SMLE.

Here are some links, but you may have these already:

You'll find additional pics linked here:

Rifle from a set of very poor quality. I did not know, that they are not suitable.
In the basket I want to install the M-2 machine gun Brovning:
