Britannia Firefly

Finished this a couple of weeks ago & thought you might like to see it.
Britannia Firefly from Grubby Tanks with AB crewman and assorted stowage:

Pleased with how it came out. For those who haven't used Britannia stuff before, this is a resin and metal kit- main body of tank is resin with metal tracks/running gear & barrel. The resin was a little pitted in places but this can be filled in with modellers putty. Spare track sections and wheel are from plastic kits and rear stowage is Sgt Majors Mess stuff I think- aerial made from heavy fishing line. The weathering is painted on, but I have since been experimenting with weathering pigments. The markings are hand painted for 8th Armoured Brigade to support my lads from 43rd Wessex Division.
More soon....
