Really enjoying seeing these two come to life. The canteen webbing is perhaps the trickiest bit of 37 Pattern to paint never mind scratch-building the whole thing!! Its looking good already though with the shape and proportions looking good. That Bren looks like a great quality item too- which kit is that from?

Thanks for the kind remarks Karl as always!
Yes,the canteen straps are the most complicated water bottle holder in any military I have modeled that’s for sure. But I now have a long history of working with lead foil strips so that helped.
I think the Bren was the Tamiya version. I have to go back and check,sorry. I have a whole box of just weapons and kit for Commonwealth so sometimes I get them mixed up.

Jeff is completed after the addition of a water bottle stopper. Mutt has had a spare Bren barrel pouch made to add some interest to him before I finish painting him.

Jerry, I see now that you’re clearly a “Master of '37 pat webbing” - there should be a degree awarded in that somewhere along the line(!)

Outstanding - as always.

The detail feels very real when looking at it.
Very well done

Yes, well, I would clearly have to mention your involvement in the launch of my education into all things Commonwealth.
Thanks for the nice comments brother!

Thanks Chris! Kind words indeed,

“Fergus” and “Tiny” take a well deserved break after being relieved by troops from the reserve brigade in St Manvieu. June’44.

Great work, super painted and scratch.

Very cool JR , very cool !!

Lovely stuff Jerry- you’ve captured the nice casual poses well and I think you have done a stellar job with the painting. The tones perfectly capture the BD and web gear.

Glad I shut up until you showed the latest photos (I wasn’t too keen on Tiny’s rear view before), they both look great, & again excellent photography bravo :tumbler_glass:

Thanks Jan!
