Mini Post - RNAS Armoured Cars

Just a quick update on the painting of the Rolls Royce Armoured Cars.   I have just finished the RNAS Vehicles.   The first one was painted in the Admiralty Gray scheme, Tamiya's Haze Gray being used to represent this colour.   The second vehicle was painted in the Daimler "Khaki Green" scheme and Tamiya USAF Olive Drab was used for this colour.   Decals for both came from the ExtraDecal WW2 RN Pacific theatre sheet.   The Vickers MGs were painted gunmetal and the headlamps silvered.


The White Ensigns were just paper printed up on the home printer and folded around brass ensign staffs.


My collection of RN/RNAS WW1 Vehicles.   The last 1914 Rolls will be in the Army 3 colour scheme but that will take a little while to do.   The 1920 Rolls Royces are currently being painted in a mid stone colour and are awaiting suitable decals from Hannants in England.

    1. Thanks Maxi! The Seabrook Armoured Car was posted in June 2013 and the AEC B Type was posted in September 2013. The Seabrook was not an AA truck, more mobile artillery, though apparently one chased a Zeppelin along the English coast but had no ammunition to fire at it!
