Coming along nicely Bob, the modulation looks very subtle in the pictures, but photos can be deceiving, only you can see it in natural daylight.

Painted tools, exhaust, wood block needs doing again my attempt at wood grain is terrible!! Followed kit instructions for what i assume is padding on the turret hatches insides. Then 2 layers of VMS gloss varnish, will leave for 3 days then the decals followed by either sand or dust layers

Bob,
Looking very nice mate indeed. I have necer understood why they took the exhaust forward so the fumes were next to the crew and not backwards away from the vehicle.

Thanks Paul

Was wondering that myself, the engine looks like its nearly in the middle, due to the steep slope of the rear?
