Bogie painted.
I then made my own transfers, in yellow as some source say this was the colour use, I did not like it and so I am now making some in white.
I will have to remove the yellow ones.

Yellow transfers removed and replaced with white, it looks better to me. Load, figure and tarpaulin added. Tarpaulin is tissue paper coated with PVA glue and formed around a load of barrels and ammunition boxes.
Figure is from the Tommy's War range.
