Looks very nice in DBG. Were in service Foxes finished that way or were they all painted NATO green and black cam?

Also interested in the markings, i.e; the blue/yellow unit marking on the front offside, the fox and what's the marking to the rear of the A Sqn triangle on the turret bin?

I thought I was on a winner with the fox insignia , thinking it was Queen's Own Yeomanry or East Riding Yeomanry but alas, on consulting my little book I find the fox on these badges are facing the wrong way. Over to you Troy !

He's a beut!!

Has Basil been adopted by the Royal Yeomanry? The fox badge looks like that worn by that TA Regiment for a time? If so and you want to continue the 9TH/12TH Lancers link he ought to have the B Squadron markings They are the Leicestershire and Derbyshire Yeomanry subunit and are affiliated to the 9TH/12TH.

An afterthought, presumably the main armament might be useful in blasting any stray tiger snake or eastern brown or similar nasty that might stray into the neighbourhood

Ok lets see, Yes I would like to continue the association with the 9/12th, so how do I change the markings to B Sqn? Yes it is QOY, the decal is the only one I have. I have a lovely photo here of a "Basil" standing gaurd near a German castle, the Fox badge is clearly seen near the fuel cap. That too is facing towards the front. Anyway Iam sorry about that, thought it wouldn't matter too much. The other marking is my bit of poetic license Laughing a bloodied wolf! I couldn't find a Fox...well they do it with aircraft why not AFV's Laughing
I would like to make basil as correct as I can so any suggestions keep them coming! Met a chao down here...two in fact, one was RA and the other 3 RTR both served in the BAOR in the late seventies, one may know you Brum, me old China! Rolling Eyes
Thanks fellas
Troy
PS we only have one real nasty snake here (well two if you count the government Evil or Very Mad )the Tiger snake...he is a nasty sod and can kill you. We have alot of bush over the fence from us and the cat (same size as a mountain lion... Wink ) loves to kill them and bring them home dropping them at the front door. Hence I have a sharpened spade there to finish off any that are still kicking!
