My infantry brigades need signals vehicles, so as I have a FoW Morris 15cwt that is doing very little at the moment, it will do nicely as a test for more conversions.

Type ‘Panther Tank’ into a search engine and you will be unable to wade through all the pictures that surface in a single evening. There are fewer good pictures of signals trucks around, but it quickly became clear that there were many variations on a theme.

I quickly found enough views to get a good enough idea of the layout for a wargames quality model based on the c4 mk2 below.

The work is simple, being little more than a box and some stick-on squares, but I am pleased with the way that the authentic 8th Army ‘tinker’s cart’ look has been achieved and quite like the two-tone effect. Perhaps a Caunter scheme may follow … in a few years!
