    1. It is rather Thomas the Tank Engine.

  4. Would they be camouflaged at this stage? Not that it matters at all, I really do like it and can imagine a squadron of these metal beasts.

    1. Possibly not but I fancied doing something different. :)

    2. Pink makes for good desert camo, apparently, especially in the red sand of Mars...

  5. Dear John,
    If I recall correctly, khaki appeared in 1884; but that's in our world.
    Thomas the Tank Engine always made me think of the AVI-1790s I saw being replaced in the field in 1970. I think the British version made a better kids' show.
    All best,
    Dave

    1. The Sudan troops were certainly in khaki.

      That bloody Thomas tune is imprinted on my brain. My daughters would watch it endlessly. Funnily enough I remember Thomas books from when I was a child.
