Hi Guys,

Just a bit of a heads up, Hauler have released a PE update set for the Tamiya Tilly, which looks pretty good.

Al,

Out of curiosity, what's wrong with the Highland Division markings? I've seen some shots that show red on black instead of the black on red Tamiya has, but I've also seen a shot on the Tilly Register site that seems to show it the way Tamiya has it (and what looks like the King in the back!) I was thinking of doing that one but would like to get the markings right if I can.

Thanks!

Michael

Hi Michael,

References I have for the 5th Battalion Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders, 51st (Highland) Infantry Division show their marking with a blueish background and orange lettering, the reverse of the Tamiya Decals, so Tamiya got the colours the wrong way around, probably from a restored vehicle where the same mistake happened.
