April 2013: Its been awhile since I updated this site……man, the time does fly by……so time to get back at it. The next release will be UK14, another BEF sheet. This sheet will provide complete sets of markings for about a dozen softskins used in France in 1940. It’s about 50% done at this time.
Next up will likely be a sheet to cover BEF armour, again used in France. It will cover Cruiser tanks (A9 and A13), Matildas, Mk VI Light tanks, armoured cars, and carriers. I'm still gathering the reference info, so if you have a particular vehicle you would like to see, drop me an email.
I’ve received several requests to create some of the sheets in different scales. In particular, producing the Free French sheet in 15mm was requested. I’ve also got some of the France 40 markings in 15mm, but need to get them print ready. Time permitting I will likely do this on a limited run basis and see how this goes.
Another project I need to address is creating a reference section on this website. I’m aware that you all may not have access to the references used to create these markings. They are identified on each sheet and some of them are old, out of print, or very obscure. All it takes is time………………
