After a splash of paint, a dirty wash and the addition of fenders made from slices of paint brush protectors, they look half decent. I could not round off the rear ends properly because of the hollow moulding method.
The barge at the front is awaiting the arrival of some model railway pallets to give it a front door / ramp.
Not at all perfect (just like in 1940), but they will do for my purposes.

One day later and half the “tyres” used as fenders have dropped off! Contact adhesive is clearly no good for the soft plastic tube, so I am planning to replace them with drilled out pieces of polystyrene sprue.

I have scoured the internet and acquired some better models, but all slightly too small to put land modls in!
The modelling progresses.
