Morning Wibble.
That is superb.
Just back from the recycling centre, now sitting with a cup of tea.
Wobble .
Yep! a trip to the recycle centre works miracles.... So got the 1930's body back again.... Yvonne keeps sending me even though there is nothing to take... wonder why the sad face when I come back....

What!! Couldn't you manage a cantilever toolbox then???? Only joking, amazing work Mike. I don't know how you can do these amazing things - gotta be magic.
I actually have an etch brass one, but all the faffing about building it became a chore, I am sure I still have it in my brass spares box - made by Aber I believe...

Update,
Assembled both the commanders and gunners GPMG machine guns...

Bit of hard work getting all the items to fit, so it was down to the store and get some water and soft drinks....

Then got bored waiting for the paint on the guns to dry, so got the laptop out....

So apart from the 'Gympys' and a few late additions, I am calling this one finished.....

Stunning Mike.

I'll echo Jim in saying it's on a whole other level.
