Nice and dusty!

Looks real pale, Would really look amazing on a suitable base.

Thoughts on the kit? on my list assuming its as good as it should be..

Thanks shaun:)
I will make a base in the future maybe.....
The kit is very nice,I had watched a couple of u tube videos on building it,Was not as easy as they made it look.
Only down fall really is the loose fit of the wheels on there axles. The beveled edges of the riveted panels The bevel needs a bit of sanding to get a better fit up,make the angle a little sharper works.
Tracks need an extra link from what the instructions say.
And instruction images a very busy and small so can get a bit confusing.
All in all I got it finished and the decals went down really well....
I would build another.

Thanks. I have fond memories of building the Tamiya one when it was a pretty new kit, and at the time thought it was just amazing. How things have moved on!

Nice Glenn, dust effect looks good
I've watched Andy from Andy's Model HQ build this and he had same issues you did, still great kit by the looks though.
On list of kits to get one day.

Nice work Glenn :woohoo:

Been looking at these, but might go with a Lend/Lease Lee version, and the M31 ARV

It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
