I’m working on my PSC Sextons. These are the first PSC vehicles I’ve bought & I must say I’m impressed.
They’re quite detailed, easy to assemble but best of all, robust.
My soft skin & armour collection for my late war NW Europe is a heterogeneous collection of kits, resin & die-cast. No real rhyme or rhythm, just what was available.
I suppose they might even look odd.
I do know if I was at the start of creating my WW2 forces, instead of towards the end, I’d go with PSC all the way.

Looks good. That’s a nice, big table for a 20mm WWII game. You appear to be another plastic kit modeller who plays with his toys. Good for you. Put whatever you have built on the table for a game. The original combatants sure did.

I think you’re confused with a poppery: AKA a hot air pop corn popper.
Never wise to burn the kernels.

No, who would command the regiments?12/12/2018 at 12:24 #105570
Ah, to old Kentucky:
“Where the golden age is regnant, and each succeeding morn
finds the corn is full of kernels, and the colonels full of corn.”
Pass the bourbon.

I’ve had a bit of a look around but I can’t seem to find anything: what colour were the inside of ww2 british armoured vehicles; specifically Sextons?
The PSC models are excellent & the construction instructions OK but painting information is sketchy.

The rule of thumb was that open topped vehicles were painted the same inside and out, so the exterior colour (officially SCC19 Olive Drab for a Sexton) http://patrickbaty.co.uk/2011/10/05/wartime-camouflage-colours/carries over to the interior. The only major exception would be where the exterior was repainted but the interior wasn’t.

Which, in the case of a Sexton, might be the brown that preceeded SCC 19.19/12/2018 at 11:07 #106032
Possible, but the Sextons used in NW Europe came from later batches & were manufactured in Canada. They may even have been in US Olive Drab.
The inside of a preserved Sexton, although I’ve no idea whether or when it’s been repainted or not. My take on this is that the original scheme was probably SCC19, which was known to fade to a brown colour when exposed to the sun and weathered for a while, as on the more exposed surface on the left. The more sheltered (& possibly canvas covered) areas are distinctly greenish.
