Back to the BEF, May 1940

I’ve grown tired of painting Austrian hussars for 1859/1866 that have been on my desk for about six months and are barely 50 percent done! As a significant change today’s offering is a few additions to the 1/72 scale BEF Fall of France collection.

Five Early War Miniatures British scout carriers.

These two will form part of my divisional cavalry regiment and when I finish their MkVIbs will be ready for action. They will be part of the 13th/18th Hussars or either the East Riding or Fife and Forfar Yeomanry.

These three will be part of a motorised infantry battalion.

The models are really very nice and no trouble to stick together. I’m fairly happy with them - their performance on the tabletop will hopefully make me happier…..but I won’t hold my breath.

Right, back to the 19th century.


  1. They are nice, and new, so are doomed...

  2. Good looking unit. So sensible to vary types of painting in the queue to keep tedium at bay.
