Some graphite powder on that floor would be great. That's a very nice interior you've got coming together. Enjoying this a lot

Love these little tanks, and you're doing this one proud.
Hows the construction fit ? worth the dollars (even though you got a freebie :P )
Looking forward to progress - hope you are planning on the bright French colours :) .

Thanks guys :)
Fit up of parts is good,afew edges to bevel,parts are well molded and no flash.
So far very happy with this kit,first MENG model I have built and would do it again.
Its just the size :ohmy: this could fit on the back of a sherman haha.
I am not going to use the diorama base this comes with,I will build my own and have it coming face to face with a german ww1 tank, ;)
