Roden 1/72 British Armoured Car N.731. Got this Rolls-Royce for duty in France in 1940, then realised it wasn't used there, so converted it for WWI use with Lawrence of Arabia.

Thanks for the comments, all. I've been all Beau Geste lately, beginning with Airfix's 1/76 Fort Sahara:

...and some very venerable (and restored) figures to go with it, namely the first tooling Airfix 1/72 French Foreign Legion:

Image

...some Airfix 1/72 Arabs:

Image

Image

..bolstered by a few painted-up scratchbuilt figures of my own:

To complete the picture I added the Italeri African House (1/72):

1/72 Airfix 75mm Assault Gun (Stug III) (A01306), with added figures and some cunning photoshopping to give it a period look!
