More desert tanks for the British, this time five Grants (GHQ pack UK-7). An ugly tank, very high in profile and with the odd sponson mount, but it was popular with the troops when it arrived, as it gave them a 75mm gun for the first time. I gave the Caunter a break and used a different camoflage pattern I found on a couple of photo - Desert Pink base with a pattern of Dark Olive, outlined in white. I think it looks rather good, and certainly distinctive.
