Today a package finally arrived in the post - yay!
Within it was a Flames of War TOG 2 tank model that I ordered about two weeks ago, and have been looking forward to receiving with childlike excitement.
For you that don't know, this magnificent beast is a TOG.
Irritatingly, I ordered two, the other one has been placed on 'back order', whatever that means.
More to the point, as soon as the postman was gone, I of course got out my new toy for a bit of a play.
As fate would have it, I recently took delivery of some Blue Moon Mark I tanks. The Blue Moon kits come with both 'Male' and 'Female' sponsons....and I'm building them as gun tanks....and the 'spare' machine gun sponsons just so happen to perfectly fit my pretty little TOG....
....so.....why shouldn't I build the model as The Old Gang of the Royal Navy Landships Commitee originally intended?
These drawings gives a fairly good impression of the original design.
I'd need to get some Matilda II turrets to complete the transformation, but that is no problem really.
Feeling really jazzed about doing this.
Let me know what you think!
