|Five M3A1 Stuart Tanks in British colours|
Over four and a half thousand M3A1's were produced between May 1942 to February 1943 and a significant number saw service with the British in North Africa. The British army designated the vehicle the Stuart III & IV (the Diesel version) but by now the vehicle was known to British tank crews as the 'Honey' because of its smooth ride and good performance, particularly in prolonged desert operations. Popular it may have been but its relatively small 37mm gun was no match for the latest German tanks now arriving on the continent and it would soon be superseded by the M3 Grant and later the M5 Sherman.

Five 6mm vehicles should earn me another 10 points in my quest to beat my challenge points 'personal best'.
Yes, as advertised, these are real 'honeys' Lee. Well done. I really like your take on the the blue-grey camo and, as-we-always-say-but-needs-to-be-said-again, your basework is absolutely top notch.
Now, where is 'The Haunted Tank'? :)
