Back of Beyond vehicles

To add some mobility to my British forces I have been experimenting with some die-cast vehicles. I claim no expertise with this and it has definitely been a learning experience!

Here is the collected motor pool produced over the last couple of weeks:

There are five Ford Model-T cars for transporting infantry and a Ford Model-T lorry for anything heavier. The former are Matchbox models and the latter was converted from a Lledo oil tanker model, with additional parts from a Sloppy Jalopy metal Thorneycroft lorry model.

Here are close-ups of one of the cars (all five are more or less identical other than the numbering). Some of the tyres need touching up but this is a minor issue:



Here are close-ups of the lorry:




(I have since straightened that rear wheel)

No example of master-modelling, but I think these will do the job on a wargames table when I eventually get round to gaming this period again.

This is a fairly "slow-burn" project so I am not sure what will appear next. Possibly the second Gurkha section, maybe some Pathans; or I might get distracted by something completely different...
