:ohmy: yeh, I know, but oh so little time... never mind I will still keep going, I just feel that I may miss the end date by a little...
LPOP front roller done, and hatches on, radio and antenna cable in.

Still need to do the following:
- Rear lockers, Front lights & horn, finish figures, stowage, and need to make up some hatch stays...
Then back to the Centurion or Dingo?

Thanks for the inspiration, a little update on the wheeled carrier.
Going to the IPMS Nats this weekend has also helped...
So the following has been done:
- Front lights and horn fitted
- Rear lockers made and some Panzer Art resin 25pdr ammo boxes also fitted
- Carbon antenna glued on.

Also just playing with stowage options at the moment.
Stowage will be made up of items from Value Gear, Accurate Armour, Tamiya, AFV Club and so on...

You cannot see it, but I made some 2mm spaces to increase the track to make it look a little better.
Next is to finish the figures...




Cheers grant

Update In Stash:
Lots of 1/35 Armor mainly WWII German and a few Modern British/American pieces, 1/32 Aircraft and 1/48 Aircraft. Aircraft chosen to replicate RNZAF and RAAF types through the years. Some RAF & USAF types exist also.

Likewise. Such yummy scratch-built and stowage detailing. As the deadline approaches and it begins to look unlikely I will finish all mine I must admit I really want to see yours and D1s get across the line.

Thanks guys, not sure whats going to get past the line, as the line is getting pretty close!

Figures are getting close as is all the stowage.
Besides some minor tidy ups, and should get primed this week, the LPOP that is and maybe the jeep...


Radio operator. I used 0.1mm wire for his head set and mic.

Commander, added a cigarette and water bottle.

I love the facial expression on the radio operator. He really looks like a Kiwi!
Cool stuff. Keep up the good work.
If I was a NZ's Got Talent judge & you had auditioned this I'd be saying, "You've got the makings of a winner here"

...still on the slow road, first update in a few weeks.
The LPOP had its hatches finished and got primed!
I used AK grey primer straight from the bottle.
Jeep and some stowage and figures also primed.
I am hoping to at least finish the LPOP for Cambridge, maybe for the Kiwi-modeller stand? :P

I like the idea of taking time off to finish it, but work has got in the way and now off overseas for a few weeks...
So only back in time for the trip to Cambridge.. :)
LPOP got a base coat of Tamiya Black Green.

Detail painting started.

...and first figure in ~25 years started...
