    Pretty much gotten myself into the whole Doctor Who fandom now. After making a TARDIS, I felt that I should make a Dalek; but not just any Dalek, the special World War II British Army "Ironside".
    I'll definitely include a default Dalek in the kit, though I kind of want the model to focus on the Ironside, since (as far as I have seen), there hasn't been a paper model of one.

    Also, does anyone know the proper color scheme the British Army would have used for armored vehicles during the Battle of Britain? I kind of want the paint scheme on this to be more historically accurate than Show-Accurate.

    Olive green would be the main colour used on BoB vehicles at the time,it's pretty much still the main default colour for the British Army,when I did some landscape work for them they lent us olive green wheelbarrows!.Airforce ones would be blue and the Navy battleship grey.

    Ohh, that is cool. We could place it next to Robby, the Robot.
