Gary Boxall would appear to have been busy with a second shared offering in 1/35th scale. This time around Gary shares with us a Tamiya''s Matilda kit built as a British lend lease vehicle.

Lovely build. The weathering is spot on. It looks well used but not overdone as some do where they look like they've been in the field for 20 years. I've got a Matilda in the stash and it had never occured to me to paint it up as a Russian vehicle. Really imaginative idea. I particularly like the mix of British and Russian writing on the tank, even down to the original British serial number. That is a cracking build Gary.
