Thanks Paul.
A bit more done, a few of those small bits that take all the time, lights, brackets, width markers etc. Exhaust silencer added to the rear wings, with the ends of the pipes drilled & opened up, end of the kit machine gun barrel had the same treatment, but it's much more fiddly! Nearly ready for paint, the PE straps on the jerrycan holders & commander figure to do first.

Hi Graeme
A nice neat build. I doubt the primer coat will show up any problems so bring on the 3 colour camo.

Looks an interesting build. Although I did pause when I saw two steering wheels. Different.

Thanks Colin, apparently they could drive it from either end to get it out of trouble, 8 wheel drive, 8 wheel steer, over engineered maybe? Definitely different.

What a treat having two styles of building the same kit by you and Scottie although the plastic used here is Tammy's and one of the best plastics around. Neat build Graeme, the three tone camo will be great on this.

Cheers,
Richard

Andrew, Richard & Paul, thanks for the kind words, paint should be going on soon!
A few more of the small bits & pieces done, the PE for the jerrycan holders is a little fiddly, but I managed to get them done without losing any. The tools have been cleaned up, the fire extinguishers had large mould lines on them. I'm only going to use one of the figures, an officer with binoculars, as the other has large gloves only suitable for mid winter and given my option is for Normandy 1944, I don't think he would need them! The tools will be added after paint.

Hi Graeme, coming together nicely. That figure looks to have some nice detail and should look good painted up :thumb2:

Thanks Guys, the first coat of primer has gone on today, the figure isn't bad but has a rather short neck!
