    I've just ordered a matilda tank off ebay Β£4.95 post free. At least it will give me some idea.

    I think, as 1/100 kits seem to be a bit elusive, I'll buy them as I see them. Β£4.50 postage seems a bit over the top. but that is for orders up to Β£70 Will probably get a couple of Matildas off Ebay for the moment. Don't need too many., but a bit more variety would be good. I'm still thinking of building an LCT to go on deck though.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Went on their website first Doug, and no way I would buy at Β£4.50 postage per item, much better deal on ebay, that's why suggested them to Nery'sπŸ˜€

    They, and more, are in the Wonderland Models link I posted PeteπŸ˜‰
    They're nearly 2 quid more expensive on your links!☹️
    Wonderland's postage seems a bit high though!

    Found these on Ebay Nerys, maybe of some interest to you and your LCT 388😊

    Cheers, Pete

    Tanks, I have found a Matilda and a Bradley(American) on Ebay, but everything else seems to be either German or Soviet.

    Hi Doug, thank you for that information, I won't need too many vehicles, just a few tanks and lorries to go on the upper deck. I agree with you, Matildas and Crusaders are the most likely, although my dad did carry American tanks on several occasions. The other alternative would be to build an LCT to go on deck as he did carry one across the Atlantic when coming from the builders and trials. I have drawings of that.
    I have a picture somewhere of the props, they were stowed under a deck extension on the after deck.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Hi Nerys,
    There's a good selection of 1:100 British and American WW2 tanks and other vehicles; trucks, scout car, here-
    https://www.wonderlandmodels.com/models/plastic-models/zvezd...
    Including a Sherman, a Crusader and two Matilda tanks; MK1 & MK2.πŸ˜€
    I'd put Matildas & Crusaders on a 'British' vessel.
    EVERYBODY and his brother does Shermans😁
    I can vouch for the Zvezda kit qualityπŸ‘; I have some German U Boat deck guns (88 & 105mm) and a 37mm gun for my PT109 from them. Not expensive either😊

    Re Props; well you can use the cr***y plastic ones for the deck spares.
    Now we just need to find a photo showing where they were stashed!πŸ˜‰
    I would guess lashed to a wall somewhere?
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Thanks Pete, I've been looking for vehicles as well. Not much luck so far but I'll keep looking and will be pleased to hear of any you can find.

    Cheers, Nerys

    No, the plastic things are definitely intended as the propulsion props. He doesn't mention any on deck, it's just that I happen to know they were carried.
