Hi team
Looking for marking options for ye ole Tamiya Daimler Dingo MkII Scout with crew wearing side caps (as per cavalry) in North Africa.
What year did the MkII enter the field in North Africa?

In anticipation I await with baited breath for a response.

Saw an article on a museum piece that was built in 41. Tank Encyclopedia doesn't mention any dates but 3 color plates are Libya in 42.

Thanks Timothy. I have gone with 7th Hussars 1942 before they went to Burma.

LOL. Make that 1941 as they shipped out to Burma on the 26th January 1942. At least I think that was the date. Please correct me if I am incorrect.
