Count me in. I've got a Matilda that's been gathering dust for a few years that needs building. Not my usual theatre of war but a change is a good as a rest

Thanks!

Clayton what do the color of the strips signify on the top one, which happens to get my vote as I feel that in the ribbon size a map just doesn't show up as well. Just my .02$

Just a suggestion (I can't do ribbons to the right size otherwise I'd do it to show you all)as it's a British Empire vs Germany and Italy campaign, why not use the Africa Star ribbon as was awarded to troops who served during the North African campaign? It's a nice ribbon on it's own http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0424/8745/products/1_ae1f2c9d-843f-4772-a164-7473d25b998f_large.jpeg?v=1405945154 .
I've got my grandads mounted with his 1939-45 star and Victory medal. His military career was cut short on account of being captured in May 1941 on Crete. He had the misfortune to be part of the rearguard and spent 4 years in a German POW camp. As you can see it's a nice colourful ribbon with the three stripes denoting army, airforce and navy. What do you think?

Clayton. thanks mate. For me anyway the top one's the best. I like what you've done there with the star in the middle of the ribbon. Seems wholly appropriate to award an Africa Star at the end of the campaign :-) .

Oh,I didn't make them. I just borrowed them from other sites. I haven't posted the Gazala oob's, yet. But they have the novelty of being prepared by the same source. I think the DAK oob above is missing the 605 PzJag Abt with it's Jpz I's.

Clayton, great jobs on those ribbons!

I've decided to use some of the time between now and the beginning of the campaign to illustrate some of the vehicles and weapons from the conflict.

I'll start with the Vickers Light tanks. Nowhere near as famous as the Matilda...

As usual, all images for discussion purposes only.
