Cheers chaps, well after only a short time on the kit it's taking shape nicely. I am however in the process of changing a few things just for the hell of it! Great fun this and just what the doctor ordered
Cheers comrades! More now and I've been adding more bits as well as adapting kit parts and chucking filler at it. The gun barrel is just some scrap ali tubing which I prefer to the kit part. I may shorten the length of it for a better toon look though. The turret vent dome was hacked off then notches filed into the underside & glued back on. Also I've altered the height of the hatches for a bit of variation.
I have just noticed the fact, that Meng have added a really good detail . They have included a mix of spider web and pressed steel wheels . Darn fine addition , this makes it more accurate than most 1/35s .
