Mini Post - Western Desert Matilda Infantry Tanks
I described the construction of specialist Australian Matilda tanks in an earlier post and part of that build was two Gun Tanks as used by the British in the Desert Campaign.
The major difference was the addition of the fuel tanks on the rear of the tanks and the extended track guards at the front and rear and of course the normal 2 Pdr gun.
The tanks were finished in the early Caunter scheme which was provided by the excellent Xtracolour set of three paints for this purpose.
