The lower hull looks good to me. The cast armor gives the tank an interesting fat look. All in all tell snuggles he is doing good work.

I have to ask what you plan to use the scissors for? I own a few of those and can not find them much less remember having used them. I completly agree about the pin vise, lazy is sometimes the best way.

Back on topic, looking foward to more buchery, its looking good.

If you ask me the change to gray is a plus. Closer to olive drab and the end. I am going to have to build a hull like that, I love the look for some reason. Tell snuggles to keep it up.. and nice song

Lists... got to love em. I make em up, ignore them, untill I think I am done the find out I missed a few things. Then you have to decide how much you want to undo to do what you wanted to do.
I just found out my slow boat docks in two days.. Then another 10 working days for customs to clear my stuff, another 3 to 5 days to deliver... so should be just before xmas that I get my stuff.

It looks tankish!
On a side note, I've confirmed something, and it's your fault, Matt. I spent a good half hour today, adding retaining brackets and bolts to some IDF Blazer armor on a Magach today, in places that will be hidden with the turret mounted.
I wallow in it.

Easy

Then another 10 working days for customs to clear my stuff.



Let's just hope none of those 'customs officials' have a keen interest in military modelling, otherwise some of your stuff could,..errr, maybe, become,..lost luggage, lol




If my stuff comes up missing I am shipping 5 kilos of cat nip to snuggles...

This was a welcome break after working through most of my end-of-month mileage entries.
Thanks Matt.

Glad to hear you did not need snuggles boat. And for the record you brits have the best tea.
Shipment is scheduled for Monday morning, so we get to see if it all made it or not.

Looking good, I am going to steal the method of dealing with white metal. Thanks.
Looks like the hull is pretty much wrapped up, road wheels almost.. now tracks and that turret you are putting off... or are you waiting on snuggles to finish that one?
