1/35 Roden Irish Rolls Royce all but complete.
Vehicle received among a six vehicle scrapyard. Had to scavage for parts, scratch others and for missing wheels had to cast. Repainted by me.

Thank you all for your kind words.

The figures are Tamiya Germans and Masterbox (guy with bicycle). All with new heads. All 1908 Webb equipment was scratch built with paper and Tamiya putty. Soldier pointing, officer from artillery set.

Uniform details per Osprey publication on Irish Army.
Rolls Royce colour as per article on the net on Irish Army vehicle colours.

I actually wanted to knock up this scenario.



After queries on various forums I could not find or get an answer so painted it green. After painting it, as is the way of things, I received this information. Hmmmmmm

Notes per Bob Webster
