Well, I've done the basic building on Princess Elizabeth, Using Pamela Churchill's torso, legs and head and General Horrocks' arms. I repostioned the legs to portray the figure leaning back against the Tilly and glued the arm piece on to show her with her hands clasped behind her back. I need to cut the top off her head so I can sculpt on the cap, probably using a German feldmutze as a basis, then shale off the open shirt collar and breast pockets so I can start with the putty work. I've begun building the Tilly in modules, but am finding myself needing to scratch some parts and make some assumptions. I've already assumed that the Tilly will have the steel tailgate, and the photo shows that the canvas flap in the back is in the rolled up position, but images show a rear-view mirror on the driver's side fender and a post for an absent mirror on the passenger side. The single blackout headlight appears to be a larger type than the kit part, but may be the same as is supplied in the Universal Carrier kit. I'm going to leave the hubcaps off to show the lug-nut detail and also assume that the vehicle has the passenger side turn indicator. I'll use the white upper/red lower colour scheme for the turn signal as that appears to be the most common. I'll also have to scratch-build a flap on the front of the canvas tilt as it's shown in the image at the top of the first post. The pavement on which the vehicle sits in the image appears to be white concrete with a quilted ground blanket in front of the Tilly, with the jack positioned to the right of the Princess' feet. The uniform will be the standard khaki with ox-blood boots, and subaltern's (2nd lieutenant's) pips on the shoulders. The vehicle will be dark green or olive drab overall with a khaki tilt and seats.
