I usually use a reference photo or 3 to plan out the ‘festooning’ …………I like to keep a standard look (with small variations) for vehicles in a ‘unit’……experience has taught me that platoons,companies and battalions can/will have standard layouts and variations thereof or not at all . The military often supplied vast amounts of ‘valuable kit’ that simply doesn’t fit in the transport provided or is shuffled to ‘external stowage’ as priorities change….ammunition and stores susceptible to damage get to travel first class whilst extra uniform kit,bedding and tentage goes third class….A particular bugbear to avoid is the blocking of vision ports and vents- an absolute sin in my books!
