Iam working on the idea of adding an M3 Grant to my collection. The paint job on the one at Bovington is eye catching. Two questions. 1- What is the base color? Looks too dark for light stone or Portland. Too orangish for Middle Stone (Might be lighting) . Dark brown looks like SCC 1A. 2- What unit? As near as I can figure it's from Nottinghamshire Yeomanry, 8th Armored Brigade. Yes? No? Maybe?

Hi Tim
I can't answer that directly, but seem to recall it being discussed during one of the listed builds - http://www.armortek.co.uk/Forum3b/viewforum.php?f=59&sid=c5b5fa256641fff261157eda844cb70e -

Enjoy the journey.
