Those Dragon Imperial lots may be getting on a bit, but they still build into lovely models.

I'll enjoy watching this one.

Hi guys glad to have you along, managed to get a little more done on the Bishop:rolleyes: before I had to go to hospital with a broken foot(again) :sad:

Our 7+ stone German Shepherd jumped of the sofa and landed on my foot:eek:= one broken foot, It`s the third time in just over two years I have broken the same foot in the same place:oops: got told it`s a weakness in the bones in the area of my foot, and will always be the same:sad:

Thanks Patrick, he`s only gone and trod on my foot again:eek: to be fair to him, when I yelped he did give me a sideways glance, the Wifey reckons I did make make a sound like a little girl though:oops:

Hi all, just a quick up date on where this kit is at the moment, the majority of the kit is built, well the top and bottom hulls are anyway, and a start on the fighting compartment is under way, some paint is also on the kit, long way from finished with that as it sits, also the tracks are under way, small buggers, very challenging for folk with gimpy fingers:rolleyes:

There's a lot of scope for some nice weathering on that one Tom!

I share your pain with making tracks - I'm doing some now that have 7 parts per link & there's 164 links!

Hi Patrick thanks for that, rather you than me on those tracks of yours;)

7 parts per link:eek: how have you not managed to bin them:mad: I have some Bronco Sherman tracks like that, so far they have sat at the bottom of the stash, and probably will sit there for some time:D

Mate, I'm gonna cheat! The track guards cover the upper run entirely so I won't bother with them!

The actual construction isn't so bad, it's cleaning up the tiny delicate parts that's time consuming.

Thanks John, just got the fighting compartment finished now, got to fill in the sink mark on the axles for the boggies and a small bit on the side of the fighting compartment, apart from that, its just those pesky tracks:eek:
