I think one during a period of R&R would work. Guns on floor, helmets off, smokes out.

It's just a squad photo, hopefully with the jeeps and a tank in the background.
That sound ok to you?

We'll have to force perspective with the tank though, right? ;)

Haha yeah, I'm sure we'll work out a way of getting it in to the shot without it looking wrong, but actually it won't look too bad as long as it's not sat right next to one of the jeeps or with a guy leaning against it.
And as far as I know it's the right colour...generally speaking I think OD Green is roundabout correct.
Either way won't look out of place, looks just like a Stuart tank if you squint really hard.

Indeed. :lol: Although I can't help thinking it would still look better in British colours than American, being a Tetrach and all....

Yeh I know what it's based on, the Tetrach wasn't quite as well known as the Stuart though, but I assure you being 4ft shorter than the actual tank does not detract from the look.
And no one will be bothered about the colour of the tank when it's me sitting in the turret giving covering fire.
