hi, i wondered if anybody could help with my next build?
i was hoping to build the churchill arve with the fasine, all is going great so far, but i need plans/drawings for the fasine cradle?
i can find loads of pictures, but they all show the cradle on the tank,
many thanks in advance,

Geofrey Futter did some articles on the D-day Funnies, in Mil Mod, later collected in a Bellona booklet, inc the facine carrier, but i cant remember if it included drawings of the cradle.

I thought it might be.

But I can't guarantee what scale the image came out at. You do at least have the scale bar to work from. I'll send you the original scan if you give me your email. You can't attach files to messages on this site
