Home Guard Beaverette in 20 mil


The vehicle models are 1/76 Frontline resin kits of Beaverettes and I have decorated them with various 1/72 polyethylene toy soldiers. They are based on 1940 Standard armoured cars built on a car chassis: yes, they handled worse than an American limo. It was of course an emergency desperate measure as their combat value was questionable - to put it mildly. Named after Lord Beaverbrooke, who ordered them, they were armed with a bren gun.

Suitable for a 'Sealion' 1940 or 1938 game.



Note the Home Guard Tank Rider. :)


The real thing.

  1. Nicely done John, it's exactly this sort of quirky stuff that interests me about this period. I have a couple in 15mm.

  2. Thanks Al, I find the early stuff more fun than the endless parade of Shermans and T34s.
