My weather-induced house arrest last week did give me a bit of time for painting toys. I have finished off both the artillery regiments and the motor battalion of 7 Armoured Division (1944/5). Above is 5 RHA, with Sexton (SP 25pdr) and Quad. Models by S&S and Raventhorpe.
Below is the other artillery regt (3 RHA). 25pdr with Quad and limber by Esci, with Platoon 20 crew. These models are rather nicer (and noticeably bigger) than the much older Airfix 25pdr. I think that the Esci Quad is an absolute stunner - it really looks butch enough to pull the whole rig around.
Finally (for the moment) the motor battalion. 1st Btl, The Rifle Brigade provided the infantry element of 22 Armoured Brigade. I'm not sure about the maker of the figures - I bought them as part of a batch of models a few years ago. I gave them an ink wash and drybrush to blend them in with my existing toys. The halftrack is the good old Airfix kit.
