World War 1 - The Beginning.

#1 - A4 Signed Print - Mk IV Male - 'Chanticleer' - Battle of Cambrai, 20th Nov 1917.



This C Batallion tank is researched from a Tank Corps, Order of Battle for that day when, for the first time, Tanks were used successfully to break through and push deep behind the German lines. The face of the land battle was now, to change forever.



#2 - A4 or A3 Signed Print  - 'Dearest Mother'



Here we find a 'Tommy' in his trench surrounded by sleeping comrades. He's taken time out to pencil a brief note home to his mother questionning the futility of attacks and the need for a 'wonder weapon' to save them from the slaughter. Also in the picture is a Mk IV 'Female' tank driving forth as if to answer the lads prayer. Also in the picture is the Tank Corps capbadge.


#4 - A4 or A3 Signed Print CR2/MkIV Male


This is one of my most popular prints simply showing the Challenger 2 and MkIV Male together. I am now happy, in addition to the smaller A4 version, to offer it in a larger A3 format. This sketch has in fact been so popular it forms the basis for a variety of slightly personalised versions and also appears elsewhere on my site on a mug or beer stein.



World War 2 - a new era.

#5 - A4 Signed print PzKpfW III 'Panzer 3'.


When Germany entered WW2, The Panzer 3 was designed to be the mainstay of the vaunted 'Panzerwaffe'. However, as the war progressed, it became apparent particularly in the wide open spaces of the North African desert, that this tank would not be enough.

The crew have nicknamed their beast 'Die Kiste' or 'The crate'.



#6 - A4 Signed print PzKpfW IV 'Panzer 4'.


The Panzer 4 was developed as the Panzer 3's 'Big Brother' but, it's production was soon outstripping the Panzer 3 and it's hull became the platform for many variants. By the end of the war, the Panzer 4 had been built in far greater quantities than any other German Tank and was regarded essentially as the German Army's workhorse.



#7 - A4 Signed print Infantry Tank 'Valentine'.


As the German panzers moved with little resistance across Europe, Britain still relied heavily on its elderley tank forces consisting of vehicles already outgunned and armoured on the battlefield. Britain maintained a stubborn resolve to aim tanks at their intended use - Infantry, Cruiser and Medium tanks.Some vehicles like this Valentine though much revered by it's crews and strongly armoured, were armed with little more than peashooters as designers wrestled with making turrets bigger to accomodate larger weapons. Here we see a valentine in the North African desert preparing to face Rommel's Afrika Korps.



#8 - A4 Signed print Cruiser Tank 'Crusader'


This vehicle typified the cruiser tank, a sleek looking beast capable, thanks to it's christie type suspension, of high speeds but, blighted by that British desease - a tiny gun. The designers tried on occasions to redress the issue with larger guns but, by the time something suitable was engineered, the desert war was all but over. The european theatre would not be the ideal ground for such a vehicle which was rapidly being superceded,



#9 - A4 Signed print Infantry Tank 'Churchill'


Named after Britains wartime leader Winston Churchill, this vehicle had a less than auspiscious start. The troops selected for the ill fated raid on Dieppe were escorted by this support tank. Sadly all were lost in the raid as the landing grounds were unsuitable for such vehicles. Never the less, the tank went on to become a tried and tested waepons platform providing the base for many variants including the 'Funnies' for use on DDay.



#10 -A4 Signed print PzKpfW VI Ausf E-Tiger 1


The Germans, not content with their designs had been busy getting a much bigger weapons platform to carry the 88cm anti aircraft gun which had achieved so much success in an anti tank role. The Tiger would come as a very nasty surprise to the allied forces as the Tiger was the most formidable tank of its time. The allies had nothing with which to respond until British ingenuity managed to 'shoe horn' a larger weapon into the Sherman 'Firefly' later in the war.



#11 - A4 Signed print Tiger 1


Here we see my most popular Tiger 1 print as we see the mighty Tiger on the Russian Steppes in Combat readiness. Behind a building burns as the battle rolls across the landscape.



#12 - A4 Signed print Feldmarschall Erwin Rommel


My pencil sketch shows one of Germanys most loved Generals and a man who truly understood the principles involved in armoured warfare. 

In North Afrika he would lock horns with Britains Montgomery or 'Monty' in a campaign which, eventually would see the end of the Afrika Korps signalling Germany's first defeat but, Britain's first victory. Rommel found himself charged with overseeing Hitler's west wall of fortress europe. 

When DDay came however, Rommel was stilll trying to get back to the front in order to organise the German response to the invasion. Sadly for the German Army he became implicated in the abortive plot to assassinate Hitler. The forced suicide of this undoubtedly great man deprived the Army of one of it's best leaders for the rest of the war.



#13 - A4 Signed print  Michael Wittmann



Probably the most popular print I've produced to date. This man has risen to become almost a myth. 

In fact, Wittmann became famous on the Russian front  as the commander of an assault gun. His transfer to heavy tank detachment 101 attached to SS Panzer Division 'Leibstandarte' as a commander of a Tiger unit heralded his rise to fame.


As any tank commander, Wittmann was an opportunist and, after DDay he became notorious for the destruction of a British tank unit in the battle at Viillers Bocage. However, from that day on he became a marked man eventually dying when his Tiger 007 was destroyed by............well even today huge arguments exist between the Canadians and British as to actually knocked out the Tiger killing Wittmann in the process. Today, his remains lay together with his crew at the military cemetary at La Cambe and people still pay homage laying flowers at the grave.




#14-A4 Signed print Infantry Tank 'Matilda 2'


Prior to the 'lend lease' Grants and Shermans heading to Britains aid from the USA, The Matilda 2 earned itself a good reputation in the desert. Again, undergunned and probably obsolete when compared against the German armour of the time, the Matilda 2 was very popular with it's crews seeing service through the fighting against Rommel's Afrika Korps. There is a further BEF 1940 - Matilda tank print further down this listing.





#15 - A4 Signed print T34/85


When Germany invaded Russia during Operation 'Barbarossa' they expected to come up against the older Russian designs which they duly did. Imagine then, what a shock it must have been to find this Tank racing across the boggy ground on its wide tracks, spewing armoured piercing ammunition into their German foes.  


The Russians, ever masters of thinking on their feet (or tracks), had come up with a very robust, simply and cheaply produced tank which could out perform the German vehicles with the exception of the Tigers and heavier types available to the panzerwaffe.



#16 - A4 Signed print PzKpfW V 'Panther'


For me personally, this was the outstanding tank design of WW2. German engineers looked at the Russian T34 and came up with this beast. Had the Germans concentrated on this one design and produced in sufficient numbers then who knows what the potential outcome of the armoured war would have been?


Unfortunately, the Germans took a concept such as the T34 and totally lost focus on an important fact.............the T34 was cheap and quick to build. The Germans designed the Panther then totally over engineered the vehicle making it expensive both to produce and repair. However, after inevitable teething problems the vehicle was reliable and a very formidable weapons platform.

#17 - A4 Signed print Tiger 1 'Ardennes'


This print again shows a Tiger 1 this time operating as part of Hitlers ill fated 'Battle of the Bulge' campaign in 1944.


An Infantry commander is atop  the tank conferring with the Tiger Commander as to what action will be taken next in the battle.


#17a - A4 or A3 Signed print Tiger 1 


This print again shows a Tiger 1 which is an updated version of the popular #11. I felt it overdue to update the picture and put in more detail as well as upscaling the size to be able to provide A3 sized signed prints.


NEW FOR 2016

#17a - A4 or A3 Signed print 'BefehlsPanzer' Tiger 1 with Michael Wittmann


Each year I create a unique new sketch depicting Michael Wittmann. Widely regarded as an 'Ace' Tiger Commander, here we see him in front of what would be his last command - Tiger 007. The Tiger has been researched for accuracy and is a 'Befehlspanzer' or Command Tank which Wittmann would use as a unit commander. Wittmann himself is wearing a leather jacket of the type worn by the SS Hitler Jugend tank crews which they in turn adopted from the U Boat service.


#18 - A4 or A3 Signed print Tiger 1 'Long road home'.


The Kursk offensive was a German attempt to make a vital thrust into the Russian front line which they believed to be weak. Their confidence was shattered when they drove into strengthened, well prepared positions and became embroiled in the largst Tank battle in history. Here we see a lone Tiger 1 of SS Panzer Division 'Das Reich' as it makes its way back to friendly positions having become detached in the battle.

#18A - A4 Signed print 'Last Command' Michael Wittmann's last Tiger


As the Allies pushed further inland from the Normandy landing grounds they met stern resistance from well prepared German defences. Michael Wittmann an SS Obersturmfuhrer distinguished himself at Villers Bocage knocking out a column of vehicles and creating the legend that, still today surrounds him. Here I've sketched a PzKpfW VI Ausf E Tiger 1 Befehls panzer - command tank callsign 007. This was to be his last command and during an advance, the vehicle was knocked out killing all inside. Wittmann lies, today, in a grave at La Cambe military cemetary and, still recieves fresh flowers on his grave.

#18B - A4 or A3 Signed print Tiger 231 Villers Bocage 1944


As the Allies pushed further inland from the Normandy landing grounds they met stern resistance from well prepared German defences. Outside the village of Villers Bocage, Michael Wittmann was said to have grabbed the first serviceable Tiger he could as his own had a mechanical fault, reports of which Tiger he used for the morning fighting are scarce leaving fans to speculate mostly that Tiger 212 was the one used. However, there is a convincing argument that, in fact it was 231 that Wittmann commanded into action that morning. Either way, here we see the mighty Tiger 231 on the approach to Villers Bocage passing a knocked out Cromwell tank soon to be joined by many other victims of the 'Tiger Sturm' as the German attack came as a complete surprise!!

#19 - Operation Goodwood Signed A3 Prints - Can be bought individually or as a set of 3 


This is something, in my opinion, rather special. I sketched a homage to my old Regiment, 3RTR, during it's illustrious combat record in WW2. I have represented the 3 Tank or 'Sabre' Squadrons of the Regiment from Left - Right ~ A, B and C Squadrons. 


I am not about to give you a history lesson on Operation Goodwood but, it was Mony's plan for the British and Canadian forces to break out from the DDay beach heads. Some argue as to motive but, you can google the name to read about the where's why's and how's!! The A Squadron picture shows A Squadron Shermans as they break through the Railway embankment shaking out into assault formation. The middle picture shows a B Squadron crew as it makes its weary way back to safety from their knocked out Sherman left behind ablaze, The last picture shows a Sherman Vc 'Firefly' of C Squadron as it moves forward to take on the Panzers lurking in hedgerows!!

You may choose to buy all three prints as a set (buy 2 at £45.00 incl p&p and the 3rd is free) or individual prints at the normal prices above.


#20 - Signed A3 print 'Panther Treff'


I sketched this picture of Panther Tanks as they meet or 'Treff' on the battlefield to try and sum up daily routine for Panther tanks as they jostled for positions while fighting the allies after DDay. The picture shows a Panther coming past a vehicle already in a fire position as it covers the withdrawal of the front Panther and it's comrades in the vehicle behind.



#21 - Signed A4 print Sherman Vc 'Firefly'


Having struggled to counter the threat posed by Panther and Tiger alike, the British hit on the idea of 'Shoehorning' a 7pdr Anti Tank gun into a modified Sherman turret. It was a successful marriage and at last the British had something with which to punch back at the Panzers.



#22 - Signed A4 print  PzKpfW VI Ausf B.


As if the Tiger 1 wasn't enough of a headache, the Germans developed the 'King' Tiger or Tiger 2 alongside the Panther sharing some of the design features albeit on a greater scale!! 

In part, the development of this vehicle hampered the Panther's development as the Germans really wanted the medium and heavy tank combination. A mighty beast but, underpowered having a very similar engine plant to the Tiger 1 but, with increased weight to put extra strain on the engine and gearbox.



#23 - Signed A4 print Cruiser Tank 'Comet'.


After DDay was past, the British started to equip their armoured divisions with what would become an outstanding tank design well beyond the end of WW2. It came in time to replace the unfortunate 'Cromwell' which was not able to compete with the larger German tanks. The Comet packed the punch of the firefly while being very mobile and reliable truly, great design.




#23a - Signed A3 print Cruiser Tank 'Comet'.


Another image of the A34 'Heavy Cruiser' Comet, I've chosen to depict a vehicle of A Squadron 3RTR as part of the Mighty 11th 'Raging Bull' Armoured Division as it advanced through Germany towards the end of the war. If you'd like the RTR Capbadge and Divisional Badges inserting or, possibly change the vehicle badges to the Fyfe and Forfar Yeomanry or 23rd Hussars who also manned this vehicle, it can be done at no extra charge, just ask.


#24 - Signed A4 print Willys Jeep.


No art collection of WW2 subjects would be complete without a study of the ubiquitous Willys Jeep. Who would have believed that such a simple vehicle could be produced in such vast numbers and become such a cult object. Still revered today, a good example will change hands for large sums of money. Many examples of the vehicle can be found on display at military shows around the country and zipping up and down the roads to reach the events. I chose to sketch an example with two GI's in their steed which mounts a Browning .30 calibre MG for protection. There are beer steins with willys designs available on the mugs page.



Post war - Evolution


#25 A4 Signed print A41 'Centurion'


Possibly the most famous British Tank ever produced and was subsequently to find itself in service not only with Britain but, with many nations who admired and bought the Tank. The first Centurions were issued to British units in Germany during 1945. Unfortunately a little too late to measure themselves against German armour as the war had already finished. But, the tank went on to earn itself an enviable reputation in every way and saw service right through the cold war and was still in combat as late as the 1980s. The picture depicts a 'Cent' as it was affectionately known, during the Korean conflict of the early 1950s.



#26 A4 Signed Print 'Conqueror'.


At the end of WW2 the Soviet state was very proud of its Army and held many parades. It must have come as a shock in the very early 50s when, rolling along came the T10 Russian heavy Tank. It prompted the allies to design Tanks with which to counter this potential threat.

Britain for its part designed a 'Big Brother' to compliment the Centurion and named it Conqueror. A massive Tank armed with an American produced 120mm gun, the Conqueror was certainly impressive and, though not the most reliable of vehicles it remains even today, popular with the men that crewed it. A new 'Conq' print will be available in 2020.



#27 A4 Signed print AEC Militant Mk 3 'Wrecker'


The 'wrecker' as the men of the REME call it has long been a very popular subject. These wheeled versions of armoured recovery vehicles have a huge following and many different types have found their way into private hands.



#28 A4 Signed print Foden 6x6 'Wrecker'.


Probably the most popular Wrecker to see service, REME Recovery Mechanics or 'Recy mech' friends of mine love this vehicle and many are to be seen today in civilian livery or just as 'boys toys' for weekend adventures. I remember seeing one of these on an almost daily basis in barracks as it trundled around the workshops area.



#28a A4 Signed print - M48E (IDF)


The Israelis after WW2 decided to defend their territory and to do this bought in various armoured vehicles from many nations. This sketch is of an American M48E during the Golan war and is seen withdrawing for rest and resupply. There is an American version of this vehicle further down.



#29 A4 Signed print 'Centurion' 105mm


This shows a later version Centurion armed with the 105mm gun which would become a very popular gun for its accuracy and was fitted to other Tanks such as Germanys Leopard 1 and even early versions of the American M1.



#30 A4 Signed Print FV434


Here we see the 430 series vehicle built in its REME 434 form. The vehicle is a mobile workshop in the true meaning of the word and was valuable with Britains unreliable Chieftain Tank swapping engines over with predictable ease.



#31 A4 Signed print 'Mind the Gap'


'Chieftain' Britains first designated Main Battle Tank seen here on the firing ranges at Lulworth in Dorset.

'Mind the Gap' is simply a play on words used on the London Underground - 'The Gap' in this case is the dip in the hills overlooking the ranges really called Arish Mell leading to a sheltered beach. The amount of ammunition that has, over the years fallen on that beach makes it a place not to be visited. The Arish Mell Gap lies however, on the Dorset Coastal Path and, at times, is crossed by the public who must abide by any warning signs.

This Chieftain has just fired and the smoke from the muzzle is the last which has been pulled from the gun by the fume extractor.

Not only is the commander watching for the 'fall of shot' through his sight but, atop the turret an IG or gunnery instructor is watching.



#32 A4 Signed print Chieftain in a battle hide.


This was my first sketch of a Chieftain and remains one of the most popular. The Tank has reversed into a rest spot hidden from view in whats strangely known as a 'Hide' between the trees in Germany while on exercise. A battle hide is one from which a Tank is ready to move, almost without warning, into a firing position ready to engage the enemy. Therefore, as here, no camouflage nets are erected as they'd hamper the speed with which the Tank would be able to 'Crash out'. 

Even so, there's always time for a 'brew up' and the crew can be just seen between the trees enjoying their mugs of tea.



#33 A4 Signed print - Chieftain Tank 3/4 Front.


Simply put, this is the view of a Chieftain looking straight into the 'Business end' of the powerful 120mm gun.






#34- A3/A4 Signed print - Chieftain MBT


My newest sketch of a Chieftain MBT seen in British Army Of The Rhine in the early 1980s. It is available in either A4 or the larger A3 format, ready mounted  for framing.




#35 - A4 Signed print - Chieftain ARV


Behind every column of Chieftains came tail end charlie of the REME ARV - Armoured Recovery Vehicle - ready to repair of tow any stragglers or breakdowns. The tent structure on the back was a locally manufactured 'Custom' job for living quarters for the crews for what was otherwise a very exposed vehicle offering little shelter.



#36 A4 or A3 Signed print - Challenger 1


The Chieftain tank needed a replacement and Challenger was chosen as the natural replacement and subsequently saw service in the 1st Gulf War giving good service and being very reliable with its Rolls Royce designed CV12 powerpack which, for the first time ever, gave a good balance between the Tanks 3 main characteristics - Firepower, Protection and mobility.

This print can be personalised if someone who has crewed one wanted their own registration number on the Tank, just lat me know....it costs nothing extra!!





#36a - A4 Signed Print - M1A1 'Abrams'


Britain has its Challenger as Germany has its Leopard and America has its Abrams. Every country of course believes its Tank to be the best in the world but, lets not forget that each country designs its Tanks with the same 3 principles but in different orders of priority.

Both Leopard and the M1 have enjoyed success with foreign sales leaving only the Challenger 2 which has not been offerd for sale outside the UK.



#37 - A4 or A3 Signed Print Challenger 1 at speed


This sketch shows Challenger 1 at its best, speeding through the mud its exhausts roaring as the engine produces its unique roar the turbos whistling as it goes!! This design ended up as a vinyl applied to an old friends van!! Drew many admiring glances apparently. Capbadge personalisation available at no extra cost.



#38 - A4 or A3 Signed print Challenger 2 in winter.


I love this sketch of Challenger 1's replacement the Challenger or 'Chally' 2. The hull remains essentially the same but, an all newly designed turret with state of the art electronics combined with armour which, has yet to be penetrated during hostilities. The vehicle is acknowledged widely as quite simply the best tank in the world. However, it has heralded the end of tank manufacture in Britain. If our forces require a new MBT it will simply be bought 'off the shelf' from another country. Capbadge personalisation available at no extra cost.



#39 - A4 Signed print Challenger 2


This print needs no dialogue simply a great print which is very popular and appears on many of the products that I am able to supply.




#39A - A4 or A3 Signed print of Challenger 2


This print is my newest piece of the Challenger 2 this time motoring at speed. If you want a capbadge inserting please just ask.




#39B - A4 or A3 Signed print of Challenger 2


This print is my newest piece again of the Challenger 2 motoring at speed. If you want a capbadge inserting please just ask.




#40 - A4 Signed print Challenger ARV


Sadly, Challenger is not perfect and from time to time needs help. The Chieftain ARV was ill equipped to cope with the increased weight of Challenger so, convert a Challenger to an ARV!!!




#41 - A4 Signed print 'Rolling replen'.


This was the term used when Tanks needed fresh supplies or 'Replenishment'. One option was this where the Sqn Quartermaster Sergeant would line up the supply vehicles and the Tank Squadron would 'roll' through collecting supplies as they go. Here we see a diesel 'POD' fiitted to the back of an ALVIS Stalwart as fuel is pumped into the Chieftains fuel tanks.




#42 - A4 Signed print - Alvis Stalwart High Mobility Load Carrier


This vehicle has become a legend to all who came in touch with them. The HMLC with its very distinctive engine note was alway a welcome sight as it arrived with the frontline units.

In the end they were made obsolete, but not by another vehicle as no replacement could be found. Fully amphibious the 'Stally' even today in private hands, is much loved.




#43 - A4 Signed print -Alvis Saladin


I couldn't finish this section without paying credit to the Reconnaissance or 'Recce' vehicles. First up is the Saladin or 'Sally-can' as it is affectionately known.


Now quite a grand old lady, they still serve for Britain in Cyprus and are to be found dotted all over the world. A proper wheeled tank with a punchy 76mm main gun which has been carried over into the Scorpion replacement in this role.




#44 - A4 Signed print - Combat Vehicle Recconnaissance (Tracked) - CVR(T) - SCORPION


The CVR family of vehicles has given fantastic service for many many years being very hard to replace so good is their reputation. This is scorpion with its 76mm main armament able to give a good punch for such a compact vehicle.




#45 - A4 or A3 Signed print - CVR(T) Scimitar


Just like the Scorpion, this variant fulfills a great role for units. Armed with a potent quick firing 30mm cannon able to fire  a burst of 3 consecutive rounds and with a 7 speed gearbox capable of speeds of around 60mph in either forwards or reverse, this vehicle can get out of trouble as quickly as it got in!! Much loved by its crews, many variants can now be found in civilian ownership. Your choice of capbadge personalisation is available at no extra cost.




#46 - A4 Signed print - Warthog


When Britain found itself ensnared in a conflict in Aghanistan, it needed something that could cope with the unforgiving terrain. The original troop carrier was named Viking but, was flawed in the level of protection it could afford its occupants. Subsequently a similar looking but, differently designed vehicle was supplied called 'Warthog'.




#48 - A3 Signed print - Rolling Replen 2

It's been a long time coming and there have been quite a few folk asking for a picture containing the Stalwart High Mobility Load Carrier. A much loved vehicle among those who drove these fully amphibious 'Go anywhere' trucks. Widely regarded as a sad day when the British Army decided to replace them. Here I have depicted the Fuel 'POD' version of the vehicle as it fuels a Squadron of Chieftains as they 'Roll' through the Replenishment line taking on all the supplies needed to keep them operational and ready for combat.

#47 - A3 Signed print - Chieftain


My favourite tank - Chieftain the Main Battle Tank, probably as I spent 15 years loving the beast as a crew member!! This picture shows the vehicle in one of it's most pleasing (to the eye) poses with that long 120mm gun searching a distant horizon for targets. You can have this design with your Regimental Cap badge inserted and an option to choose your own Registration number if you'd like? The design is also available on a frosted glass beerstein or 11oz mug. But those two media mean you can't pesonalise your Reg No, that is only on the print. 




#49 - A3 Signed Print - Challenger 2 LEP

The British Ministry of Defence have decided to upgrade it's fleet of already battle proven and successful Challenger 2s in order to extend its service to at least the mid 2030s. Rheinmetall have been busy redesigning the vehicle particularly with regard to the main armament and fire control systems built onto the existing hull platform. I don't intend to detail the changes here but, have reporduced the picture of the picture without the Rheinmetall brand name but with the symboll designating the Life Extension Program and in this example I have included the RTR Capbadge but, can also place in the KRH or QRH capbadges in case either of those Heavy Armoured Units get issued with the resulting vehicles.

#49a - A3 Signed Print - Rheinmetall projects.

Rheinmetall defence are currently involved in developing new weapons platforms as a cordinated international collaboration. This picture is a commission supplied to the head office in Germany and contains their 3 most current projects. The Wheeled 'Boxer' and its tracked counterpart 'Lynx' are seen here in Australian camouflage scheme along with the UKs proposed CR2 Life Extension Programs vehicle.

#50 - A3 Signed Print - Mk IV Male & CR2    I was asked to update my ever popular picture of oldest and newest Tanks in British service so this is the result. It shows F56 from Cambrai 1917 (there is some confusion as to the name of the tank between 'Fan Tan' and 'Fly Paper' due to previous actions where the first Tank was knocked out by enemy fire on The Somme. That tank sported the famous 'Chinese eyes' painted on to satisfy the wishes of the Chinese business man who had donated the money to have a tank built for the war effort.) the tank also sports a painted dragon on the hull glacis plate as this had been initially painted before the wish for the eye was realised, certainly in it's first action photographic evidence shows both Dragon and eyes painted on. The challenger 2 adjacent also sports the eye as worn today by the Royal Tank Regiment. The picture can have any capbadge required inserted on the picture.

#51 - A3 Signed Print - Challenger 1                                                      I decided to do a new print of the (in many opinions) the best looking Main Battle Tank in 'Chally 1' a revolution for the Royal Armoured Corps with its much greater reliability and mobility combined with superb armoured protection - You can choose both your unit capbadge and registration number if you wish!!

#52 - A3 Signed Print -Hellenic Army M48A5 (MOLF)                                                     I decided to do a picture for a friends father in Crete believe it or not!! Nickos was very happy with the picture of the M48A5 MOLF like the one he drove during his time with the Greek Army. It prompted me to create this new print of the tank concerned and of course, I'll be happy to shipit anywhere in the world should someone want a print - please just check out the postage rates in the purchasing information page. 

#52a - A3 Signed Print -Hellenic Army M48E Vietnam                                                     I've had requests for 'American Armor'!! Particularly of the Vietnam War hence this example. I've collected factors from a couple photos and clubbed them together in this image.  I'll be happy to ship it anywhere in the world should someone want a print - please just check out the postage rates in the purchasing information page. 

#53 - A4 or A3 Signed Print -'Waltzing Matildas'     There was a time where Britain's attempts at tank design were met with chortles an giggles. The British insisted on building tanks for specific tasks as the days of the 'main Battle Tank' were not even yet thought of. Tanks became classified by type, so 'Cruisers' and 'Infantry' tanks became the norm as dis some 'odd' names such as 'Valentine' or the tanks pictured here - 'Matilda'. That said, the Mk1 pictured in the background actually won its crews over with its reliability and simplicity. Never designed to take on enemy tanks, it fulfilled its role. It's successor - the Mk 2 in the foreground also became a favourite but, as with the Mk1 - outgunned on the battle field when confronted by superior Germa AFVs. But, these two vehicles were used by the British Expeditionary Force in the defence of France. In fact, they were used at Arras to deliver the first serious blow that the German Blitzkrieg had suffered during a well planned counter attack.

#54 - A4 or A3 Signed Print -'Urban Cam Chally2'     

Here we see a Challenger 2 painted in a unique 'Urban' camouflage which was first seen during the 'Cold war' when painted onto Chieftain MBTs of the Berlin Brigades Tank Squadron based in the city. A very distinctive design and a picture I genuinely loved drawing.

#55 - A3 Signed Watercolour Print -'Challenger 2'     

Here we see a Challenger 2 painted using watercolour. The first time I've painted in this manner for many many years!! I really enjoyed it and am fairly happy with the finished effect as, hopefully, are you. A capbadge and inscription can be put into the print and, I may just be able to change the number plate if you require it.    Anyway I hope you like it.

#56- A3 Signed Print -'Conqueror'     

Before the end of WW2 tanks were getting bigger and bigger. A looming cold war threat from the Soviet Union culminated in the 'Joseph Stalin IS3 Heavy Tank. It's arrival sent Western tank designers rushing for their drawing boards and, in Great Britain the result was the Gargantuan 'Tank, Heavy No1, 120mm gun, Conqueror'. Built to bolster the still New Centurion Tank which was deemed simply not big enough to pose a sufficient threat to the IS3.

Not without its flaws, Conqueror was quick in becoming affectionately respected by its crews and, even today it the very few running examples still arriving at shows, gets people on their tiptoes to look at this leviathan. A recovery variant was of course required to provide the muscle to retrieve these tanks should the need arise. Numbers were issued to British Tank units in relatively small numbers as a supplement to the Centurion Squadrons rather than to completely equip whole Regiments. 

Soon the advent of the new concept in Mani Battle Tanks would herald the end of its service with the British army but it remains a beloved relic even today.

Capbadges can be added and the number plate can be personalised simply ask me.

#57- A3 Signed Print -'Cromwell'     

Before the end of WW2 British Tanks were getting better. Britain had been building 'Infantry' Tanks to (as the name implies) support infantry in assaults. Then came the 'cruiser' Tanks the first attempts such as the A9, 10 and 13s not being very successful due to under arming and unreliability. Later in the war came Britain's fastest Cruiser seen here the 'Cromwell'. Very mobile and ideal for the medium reconnaisance role it was adopted for but, lacking the protection and sufficient punch to really threaten the heavier German tanks. The design would however very quickly give way to the highly successful 'Comet' and more modern 'Centurion' which, though arriving in 1945, was slightly too late for any action. This example pictured  is of the 15/19th Kings Royal Hussars who became the 'recce' regiment supporting the mighty 11th Armoured Division in late 1944 joining in it's spearhead rush for the Baltic coast. Here the two Hull crewmen are enjoying a breath of fresh air while the commander scours the land ahead for their next objective.

#58- A4/A3 Signed Print -'Leopard 2'     

I've been asked on numerous occasions whether I'll draw a Leopard 2 and so, here it is. The 'Leo 2' has continued on the success enjoyed by its predecessor Leopard 1 packing in new technology while maintaining a reputation for reliability and outstanding levels of mobility coupled with the 120mm smoothbore main armament. Undoubtedly an outstanding design and very popular across the world as the military sales figures will prove. Not only have European Armies invested in this German beast but it serves as far away as Canada.  For it's fans, if you wish to buy a print, if you are not in the Bundeswehr and would like the cross removing and a unit capbadge or symbol can be added at no extra cost and it can be personalised with text if you'd like, simply ask me.
