Oh wow! Haven't you added the WiP pics I'd find it hard to believe it's Heller. Respect for your perseverance, I'm gonna go straight for the RS kit instead😉

Thanks! I copied even more from the RS Models kit than shown in the pics; I used some of the RS decals as well since the Heller decals were badly out of register, and I also made white metal copies of the RS wheels to replace the tiny Heller ones.
