My last batch for ETS are British tanks in winter colours. All from the 7th armoured division! one Cromwell from the heavy recce unit, one Cromwell from a combat unit, one Ic Firefly from the combat unit and one Achilles from the AT unit.
The last is the Achilles kit fitted with the M10 early turret. I believe the first 12 M10 to Achilles conversions were with the early turret and used mainly for trials. Some sources indicate that the Achilles Ic had only the early turret, others seem to say it was the diesel powered version (in which case the rear deck is iscorrect), it may have been both! Either I doubt any saw combat, but in the land of wargaming, an Ic with the desert rats in winter is not entirely unlikely and makes an interesting change.
Many thanks to John S.
