Looking good, I can tell the difference in the quality from the one I've been labouring with just from the pictures.

I'm following this in three places. Hey Maarten which era is this T55 from, it looks more recent than 1973

Cool man! That coat of paint looks like an excellent base for further work/weathering! Second Bish on his question - when is this '55 from?

If my daughters horse saw that drum it would try and jump it!!
Spectacular build Maarten. Oozing detail and the stowage boxes and fuel cells? on the side bits are brilliantly detailed. Awesome paint work as well.
Move up to MASTERCLASS, collect $200 as you pass GO!! Well done ;-)

I echo what the DA says. That is truly lovely in all respects! Nice touch that civilian fuel drum. It looks like I could easily undo the straps and remove it. Maybe I could?
