I recently came across a model I made some time ago (years ). It was put off to one side for the gloss coat to dry prior to weathering. I must get around to that one day soon :-)

The vehicle is a Driver Training Valentine, used by the New Zealand Army, post war.

I first came across reference to this vehicle in an AFV return from the mid 1950's when I was researching NZ AFVs in the late 70's, and quite by chance came across a this photo in 1990 at Trentham Camp.

It was about ten years that I got around to making the model
