Thanks for your 'likes', everyone. This is a really nice kit, and all is fitting with no issues so far. Lots of wheels and running gear next. I'll have to plan the pre-painting first..

Building up the hill and turret, so I can think about priming with a rattle can.

Can't put off starting the running gear, so that will be next, Ben. Lots of careful work to come....

Running gear done, so back to the hull and turret for next small items to be fitted before the start of painting. A few brackets and PE straps will be kept off til the very end, so that the pioneer tools, etc can be kept out of the way.

Thanks, Dietmar. I took the first set slowly, but the second set was much quicker. It all goes together really well. No parts lost to the carpet monster!

Fantastic progress, Bruce.

Thanks, Robert. I'm really enjoying working with acrylic paints: fast drying, no fumes, and can be applied as a wash too. Definitely recommend the kit. Lots of details, very few mould seam lines to remove, and everything fits perfect!

Andy WW1
Looks great, I'll follow along I may have a go at one of these too.
8 May, 15:39
Bruce Huxtable
Welcome, Andy. Definitely recommended 👍

Finished, for the moment....

Looks really good!

Bruce Huxtable
Many thanks, Robert. A few small tweaks and I'll call it done.
14 May, 12:04
Dietmar Bogatzki
Looks great, Bruce, just a bit to glossy
14 May, 15:12
Bruce Huxtable
I think you are right, Dietmar. So, do I use weathering powders, or a pale coloured wash? The finish you see is Matt Acrylic ..

Ben M
Really cool result. Maybe dullcote? I flatten flat acrylics with it sometimes.

Great build Bruce. 👍

Bruce Huxtable
Many thanks for your generous comments, Bobby and Guy. Every build is a learning experience, so we'll see what tempts me next.
