Great start, Paul, and nice addition with the driver.

Chaps I have been slackin' a tad this last week, but we now have an update here .
I have most of the build done, still a few bits to add or maybe change. I have almost completed the turret, the big fail here are the smoke grenade dischargers. The kit ones are totally wrong, AFV will have you mount them with 4 pods on the side of the turret. They should be 3 on the front, left and right of the mantlet. I have also added cushions to the hatches and tie downs around the stowage bins. The kit barrel will stay, to this I added a shroud and also filed down the counter weight at the front. The drivers and commanders vision gear had some sink marks in the middle, I'm trying to counter these with Humbrol clear, instead of filling and sanding. Hopefully I can complete the build stage tomorrow and maybe even get some primer on there
Excellent Start Paul! The figures look really nice and will add a new dimension to the finished kit.
