No - I scratchbuilt the Clansman units, along with the gas cooker, mess kit and 'cardboard' boxes (actually really thin plastic card) for a bit of local colour. I like to set myself challenges from time to time and was pleased with the general outcome of the Clansman radios I built. I scaled down the actual measurements and then tried to get as close as I could to the look and feel of the real items. Around 30 units of Ford F30 were prepared for that purpose with the help of local suppliers: they were equipped with extra large sand tires, had the hood and cab removed for better cooling, the condenser was mounted on the running board.

Comes with a host of parts depicting accessories such as sand mats, condenser, sleeping bags, canisters, boxes and more. Given the timeline for the addition of the wing 'trays' late in the life of the Pinkies if the few available photos are representative, I went with Clansman simply because I couldn't see the Larkspur being retained after the rest of the army started transitioning en masse. The Tamiya British LRDG Command Car North Africa with Figures in 1/35 scale from theTamiya plastic military model kits range accurately recreates the famous real life British soldiers who fought in North Africa during World War II. Prior to that and perhaps in the image timeframe there was the Larkspur system. This looks like the kit radio between the seats. Larkspur A43, which is a UHF set: odd. As the version I chose, has a 37mm Bofors antitank gun, the only thing that rests to get is the Mirage or Tom kit (Ref.#35212) since the kit is the same.That'll do for now, happy to follow on if you like, or have specific questions. I couldn't speculate any further as to the Clansman fit, I'll no doubt be getting it wrong and incurring the wrath of those who know better. In the following years the British usually avoided using Stuarts in tank-to tank fights, deploying them mostly in reconnaissance operations. In some cases the turret was removed for the sake of lighter weight and better mobility (such versions were known as "Stuart Recce"), some other units were transformed to either armoured personnel carriers ("Stuart Kangaroo") or command vehicles ("Stuart Command"). The M3 served with the British army till the end of the war, though in smaller numbers than those used by the Americans. During the Second World War, about 19,247 Sherman tanks were issued to the US Army and about 1,114 to the US Marine Corps. Moreover, the U.S. supplied 17,184 tanks to Great Britain, some of which went to the Canadians and the Free Poles. The Soviet Union received 4,102 vehicles and an estimated 812 were transferred to China. These tanks were distributed to the respective countries' allied nations.

Continually harassing German forces behind enemy lines during WWII throughout North Africa were British and New Zealand Special Forces called the L.R.D.G. Well clearly they did just do that. My previous self as a TA signals instructor is turning in its grave.......... I've uploaded a photo of the spare wheel in place with the tyre bead breaker that lives on the offside rifle holster. The nose of the bead breaker locates in a reinforced hole in the front bumper. The wheel is mounted on the spare wheel carrier to keep sand out when replacing the inner tube. A good little diorama.This service does not deliver on a Saturday or Sunday. If you would like Saturday delivery please call us on 01782 409310. In 1941 the British army had 700 Stuart tanks in service, 170 of which were deployed in Operation Crusader in North Africa. Though Stuarts surpassed most of the Axis tanks in many respects, the operation was unsuccessful due to the poor tactics of British troops.

Here is a 351/352 configured as a 352 with the SURF on top of the set and the 16W amp (finned) between the set and battery. Note the wide GS bergen frame it all fitted onto. Next to it is the CIK frame which would be attached to the vehicle and into which the bergen frame clamped. On FFR Rovers it went on the Dexion behind the front seats. Clansman was coming into service in the late 70's: it had just arrived at Woolwich when I was there in 79 (don't you dare scratch it......). So maybe too late for your timeframe. A length of angle iron is fitted on the bulkhead behind the front seats. All existing radios and mounts need to be removed first. wing mirrors (when fitted) on later vehicles tended to be rectangular but I've seen in-service vehicles with one of each... The Medium Tank M4 Sherman was commonly used by the United States and other Western Allies during WWII. The tank was produced in large numbers, with thousands distributed through the Lend-Lease program to the British Commonwealth and Soviet Union. The British called the M4 'Sherman' after the American Civil War General William Tecumseh Sherman.

Object Details

As Viper says, 'European' Pinkies had bigger 'boots' than normal Landrovers - the top two images were taken in Belize as far as I'm aware. The tyres may be your biggest challenge as no-one does a set specific to the Pinkie. The 351 VHF set mounts on the offside fuel board along with a crewbox and the initiate box. If detail is your thing, the Initiate box has a big orange button 🙂

Tyres are 9.00x16 Bargrips, same as the 101 Forward Control Land Rover. I don't know who would do them but if you found a 1/35 scale 101 then they would do, as long as you remember that the 101 has 6 stud wheels and the Pinkies are 5 stud. A good opportunity for 3d printing.Tamiya has a reputation for detail and accuracy and this series is a perfect example of this. The Tamiya designers work from measurements and thousands of picture references of the full sizes vehicles, including every detail and facet, to produce the most detailed models in this scale in the world. The quality of these models is such that many museums around the world use the Tamiya 1/35 Military Miniature Series to depict history to the visiting public. radio antenna mounts on the nearside wing. You would usually see a large metal box that houses the electrically powered tuning unit with the antenna base on top of this box. This would make sense here, it keeps the antenna tuner out of the elements. But no, not this time. The antenna tuner is on its own and the antenna base mounted in front of it. There must be a really good reason for this, buggered if I know. Side hatches on the rear bed radio storage compartment can be assembled in open or closed position. Two 12v battery chargers live behind the Commanders seat (the raised passenger seat). A 4Ah battery lives behind the drivers seat. There is a combination of Larkspur switch boxes and Clansman crew/harness boxes mounted on the bulkhead between the front seats. These allowed the crew to communicate and monitor radios at the same time. Any old soldier can pull up a sandbag and chip in here about Clansman 🙂 The Long Range Desert Group (L.R.D.G.) was a mobile unit that the British Army employed in North Africa during WWII, and which was tasked with harrying
