Hi all,

I'm currently working on AFV Club's LEFH18 for the AR Incoming Build. I've worked on 3 AFV clubs in recent months.. M-10, Stuart and now this.. and All I can say is WOW!.. They look like they improve every time.. the M-10 was a great kit, the Stuart even better.. now this one!! I am amazed at the detail.. some very delicate parts ahead to cut off the sprues.. but I appreciate that delicate detail...

On to the Trail Arm Assemblies.. No problems here so far.. just need to be very careful cutting the delicate pieces of the sprues... Perth's review is a great guide for this kit!

Looking really good friend. The detail on this kit is incredible.

And don't worry, I'm not that fast. Just a lot of projects going at once! ;)

It is coming along nicely Charlie. I have their PAK 43/41 on the way in the mail. I couldn't help myself.

hmm thinking maybe I shouldn't have added tools yet.. might get 'ugly' during weathering..

Yeah, I check it but after a few days it seems to "forget". It does that on all sites that I have a log in. I probably have something wrong on my internet options.

And I am part of the computer generation!! :)

Your painting and weathering have done this kit some justice.

Very nice looking model Charlie! :)

Impressive work as usual Lord Blue Fin. Solid modeling, (as usual). You've supplied a good set of pics from early construction right through paint. Is this one going on a little base or dio, or is she going to stand alone? Very impressive.

Why does it look a little greenish ?
It's because the dark yellow over the gray ?
Never seen that....
