Calling this done.

The British Engineer Vehicle Mk1 know to the troops as the BEVVY. A rebuild of Priest SP guns that were replaced by Sexton SP guns in NWE Theater. Removing the gun and adding an extension to the Front of the fighting compartment to improve forward visibility and a covered top for overhead protection. This Type of Engineer Vehicle went on to serve well into the 60's in Territorial units until finally replaced by the much updated Combat Engineer Tractor in the late 70's.

Sweet!  A very smart looking modification to be sure.  Never seems to be enough engineer support vehicles as models.

A great idea for a conversion and beautifully carried out. A most believable result - bravo!  :)

I like I like I like  !!  Really nice work !!  Fantastic work with the sheet plastic, and a great finish.

What a great idea and so well executed too. This is totally credible and could really fool people. Well done!  :) 8)

Not surprising. It's excellent ... but subtle. Hope you scored a BEVVY or two out of those Club members  ;)

This looks so right; it's hard to believe that someone, somewhere didn't try this on a Priest. The welding gas cylinders on the rear look real, too.
