STUART M5A1 TANK and WILLYS JEEP 28mm

A Stuart tank  and Willys jeep added to my British Support List.
Both are from Warlords Games and are resin models.

Correction: Thanks to Scott (from Chain of Command in Australia) who gave me a heads up on the triangular insignia which should be white not red for Armoured Recce.
  Named 'Nasty'
Undercoated with Matt Black enamel spray paint
Washers glued onto the bottom of the chassis and turret to be used in conjunction with my magnetic model holder( see Modelling and Painting Tips #1) 
Added a couple of back packs hanging off the turret,a metal cable on the chassis and camo net.





The resin model of the Jeep does not come with the driver. The driver is from a left over figure from the Universal carrier, I modified his left arm to appear to be holding the side of the jeep.
The Jeep is mounted on a magnetic base and the diver is removable.(just notice super glue residue on the wheels will need to touch  that up)
Modified the Driver to fit in the jeep and connected the driving wheel to the figure.
Small earth magnets where  in-bedded into the base of the figure and the seat.

Also added PIAT/2"mortar ammo container and rifle.
The magnets where concealed with Green stuff

Primed with undercoat
