Example text

Wiring for the lights is not necessary, as the wires run through the light mounting brackets. One could also use some lead foil and cover the headlights, making it look like a canvas cover. The front tow hooks were replaced using spares from the parts box and some scratchbuilt plates using plastic card and Grandt Line bolt heads. Looking closely at wartime pictures will help with both placement and sizing. At this stage of assembly, one can put the upper and lower hulls together. The front of the tank requires new weld seams.

The exhaust pipes leading from the engine to the mufflers were then added. These pipes are made from thick ‘plumber’s’ solder that is easily bent and formed to the correct angles. Matilda exhausts seem to vary in style, and Sean chose a more elaborate version, which has heat protection wrapping added to them. He took soft copper wire and wove it around the pipes, gluing it in place as it was wrapped, then added some lead foil to several points showing the pipe connections. British vehicles used both a Caunter scheme and a solid pattern style of camouflage, so the choice of finish is at the modeller’s discretion.

A white number on a coloured square denoted a unit’s position within a division, and was generally fixed to a metal plate on the front right side. The 4th Royal Tank Regiment painted on its tanks an eye in white with a black outline and blue pupil on either side of the upper turret. The A11 in France also carried a census number. For the white squares, I used stencils designed for architects, which are relatively inexpensive. Stencils are quite easy to use. Cut the stencil out, apply the front of the sheet to a piece of sticky tape, apply it to the surface and rub it down with medium pencil.
