Your Comet is looking very smart.

If you want to model the later Mark 1, Type B Comets, with the fishtail exhausts, there are several attractive colour schemes. The tank was in service in Hong Kong in the early forties and some of those schemes were quite interesting. It also served with the Finns, South Africans and Irish.

The Raging Bull is the divisional sign of the wartime 11th Armoured Division and the number plates 52 and 53 referred to two of the Comet regiments in its 29th Armoured Brigade. These were equipped with the earlier Type A Comets with the Normandy Cowl exhausts and so you couldn't use them if you wanted an accurate tank with fishtails.

Bison make some decals for smaller models and these might give you some inspiration:

Or how about this Type B in Hong Kong:

A question for Dave: I think that the two Oil Fillers that I have, are both left.
If it is correct I will ask to Gille the right one.
