I have just taken a look at your Landships Whippet ( to see Mikes Whippet use http://www.landships.freeservers.com/cooper_models.htm
) very nice work there I love all those open hatches. Ive ordered another whippet from my local hobby shop with the view to do one with an open door and hatch on the cab. You might want to let Peter know that none of the other links from the thumbnails to larger images of your models are working.
I did some more research last night and your right Sadly 4 Bn. where on heavies. Mollos book is rather long in the tooth so Im really not surprised that the modern viewpoint is that he got this wrong about the blue helmet- to bad so sad )c:#*. From experience I know all to well how fickle and subject to change information on days gone by can be.
Your stating that the 3rd and 4th being Whippet Bn. backs up what Im reading on the web. As I havent finalized painting and markings yet Id be delighted to have some names and numbers for the 3rd. When it comes to the red and white striping I, like yourself, I am going to go for a minimalist look. On the subject of the ID stripes I see that you have placed them on the roof of the cab I rather like that touch I also like the casual posing of the figures.
3rd Brigade also made notes on some air recognition markings for use alongside the ID stripes.,, I would have thought that the red and white strips would have been enough even for the most short sighted of pilots! The use of additional markings is news to me, do you have any idea as to what those might have been?
Ill see if I can find a copy of the D. Fletcher book locally so I can see if its worth my investing in.
Thank you, again for your help, suggestions and ideas on the Whippet these will lead to some changes and improvements.
