Pa
Will, I cannot post comments on your blog so I will do here.

Many thanks for sharing all that interesting information over the years!

The carriers look good but should BEF 1940 vehicles really have khaki cammo spots? See Mike Starmer et al. e. g. here:
http://www.mafva.net/other%20pages/Starmer%20camo.htm
https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/missinglynx/british-1940-disruptive-camouflage-t65180.html

I have collected a nice bunch of BEF kits but completed none yet since the paint shades are not readily available but we have to mix them at home.
Pa, the actual colour is supposed to match Starmer, but the MIG Jimenez Armo Khaki Green G3 that is sold as a match is far to close to khaki so it was mixed with olive green to make it more green, but it doesn't show up well in these pictures. The pattern should be more stripey, but I used blotches to distract the eye from the moulding lines on the vehicles.

BEF and others would be great, especially as I've just acquired some Bren and scout carriers from Butlers Printed Models, I had to use old Airfix figures to make the crews

I do like your Scout and Bren gun carriers.I find these very attractive vehicles having seen them a while ago. I have not come across this manufacture before . Certainly food for thought a I am considering modelling them in 15mm.

Lots of universal carriers in 1/72 but these carriers are not readily available. Currently, converting some PSC universals into scout and Bren gun carriers as after buying the box I realised that universals were post Battle of France.
