Nice Build mate its been interesting to watch how you have gone about various areas of the build.

I have completed my one sans the Commaders optics which Ill do tomorrow.

I appreciate you modelling style and your approach in terms of getting your bucks worth out of it I think people have to come to terms that not everyone is out to do show stopping models keep on doing what you do mate.

Cheers Cuny12

Donald,
Being a youngster next to you, at 71 years young, I understand your comment about stairs. Your work has been a joy to follow and I have a least two of the 1/16 kits you have built waiting for me to start. I think your work has been some of the best presented here on Armorama, and some of the techniques you have introduced in your builds have and will benefit us all.
If you decide this is the last build, Thanks for the "ride". If not , can't wait to see what is next.
John

I think you will find this very interesting, Trumpeter gives you with these kits Copper cabeling to use for the Tow Cables.
that doesn't work, They are too big in Diamater and are almost imposible to paint.
I found at my local Hardware Store some Cables that are just right, a little paint and they should look good.

Hi John.
The Boss is after me to keep on doing this I don't know?
Well I still have a 1/16th T72 and 2 Panzer IV Ausf F s one Iwas going to make into an ausf.G
I don't know I'll just have to wait and see what happens.
It's good to hear from someone who likes what I do.
I do this not fore recognition or money , but to help those out there that don't have a lot of experience.I have been building for over 60 years.

Sincerely
Donald
