Armour

M4A2 With Sandshield
2014 model from GHQ - truly excellent






Valentine Mk II
A fine model from GHQ




This is the ISM version.  The body is copied from GHQ's Bishop (may be from one of the other GHQ Valentine models, but I don't have them, so I don't know...)






Covenanter
The Covenanter was an early British cruiser tank.  It was in generally an abject failure; it was never deployed in a combat role outside Britain, despite over 1700 built.  This model is from Armstrong, and is quite nice.


GHQ A-9 Cruiser Tank









GHQ A-10 Cruiser Tank













GHQ A-13 Cruiser Tank
Four models of the A-13 with various desert markings








GHQ Crusader I
Four models of the Crusader I in various desert paint schemes








Crusader

This model is from CinC.  It is not up to the same standards of the GHQ model (though this was a used one, and not straight out of the package)


Another version of the CinC model, this of the Crusader II






Matilda II
GHQ's Matilda Infantry Tank.  These models suffered an unpleasant accident when sealing -- I accidentally grabbed the aircraft gray than the dullcote.  I repainted them, but they didn't come out great.








Here are a series of very, very old GHQ Matildas, dating back to the early 1970s, I believe.  I tried out three different paint schemes.  They don't compare well with their modern counterparts -- the shape is off, and the barrels are far too weak.













M3 Stuart
The famous "Honey" of desert service, in several paint schemes






M3 Grant
An older GHQ model, well-pitted with age when acquired.  One of the worst paint jobs on this site.


Several other versions, with far better paint jobs




This one has crude unit markings painted on.  Future models will have GHQ decals instead.


A whole horde of Grants (actually a platoon-scale early 1942 battalion)


MkVIB Light Tank
A fine GHQ model.  Also suffered from an inadverent priming...




Another, better-painted version






Morris Armoured Car
From GHQ, painted with the caunter camo scheme




Morris Armoured Car
GHQ model with 2lb AT gun


Humber Scout Car Mk II
GHQ model in two different paint jobs












GHQ Humber Scout Car Mk IV




Another version, by one of the British manufacturers, not really in the same league as its GHQ equivalent


India Pattern Carrier Mk II
GHQ Model






Lloyd Carrier
From Armstrong Models, with and without canvas cover




Bren Carrier
ISM Model




Older GHQ Bren Carriers
A bit rougher than their newer items




Various Bren Carriers




Artillery

2lber AT Gun
A good model from GHQ. One problem, though -- it has a seat for a crewman, but no crewman molded on.


Another version






6lber AT Gun
An Armstrong Model




Bishop Self-Propelled Gun
An interim self-propelled 25lber on a Valentine chassis, this version from GHQ




More Bishops, these from CinC


And these from GHQ




25lb Guns
These are very old GHQ models -- dating from the early 1970s, along with the current GHQ 8th Army artillery crews




These are the newer versions, complete with Quad and limber, but no crews as of yet.




4.5" Guns
Manufacturer unknown, gun crews from GHQ






Deacon Self-Propelled AT Guns
From one of the UK manufacturers




Bofors 40mm AA Gun
CinC model, with GHQ halftrack infantry for crewmen


Same models, mounted on bases




Mk VI AA
Pewtercraft Model




Infantry

GHQ's 3" Mortar Team


More modern version




UK GHQ Vickers Team




The more modern version





UK Boys Anti-Tank Rifle Team




The more modern version




GHQ Infantry
GHQ's individual UK infantry in tropical dress.  The bases are play sand with white glue, repeatedly washed with varying colors.  I'm not entriely happed with the colors, but they'll do for now.








The following are the same models, done in a slightly different style, but including the more recent Bren gunner













Soft Skin Vehicles

6lber Portee
An interesting model from Armstrong Miniatures.




Morris 15CWT Truck
GHQ Model


UK 15CWT Trucks
From Armstrong Models, both with and without canvas




UK 15CWT Radio Truck
From Armstrong Models


Thornycroft 4x6
GHQ model






Morris 4x6 Prime Mover
GHQ Model




India Pattern Wheeled Carrier
From Armstrong Models






Spider Gun Tractor
From Armstrong




Quad Gun Tractor
From Stevens International, which I believe just re-packaged Skytrex models.






Dorchester Armoured Command Vehicle
Manufacturer unknown



Aircraft Of The Desert War

Hawker Hurricane IID

Scotia model of the ground attack aircraft.  The paint job really didn't work out.
