Hi Guys,
Working on the AFV Club kit, its a winner. And not just because its an Aussie subject!

These shots show what ive done and added thus far. Obviously one glaring omission is the mantlet dust cover, ive added one using Apoxie Sculpt.

The kit goes together great, lots of lovely detail included by AFV Club.













Still lots of little details to add, but construction is mostly finished.

Sam

Any idea on which of the five vehicles that you have to choose from that you would make? (I saw some of their names on PMMS, and some seem, um, inappropriate (?) lol)

That Cent looks really good. I might want to get myself one of these when they come available here. A neat build Sam, well done.
Do check the front plate, I can see two sprue attachment points in front of the driver's hatch (photo 5).
Cheers, MartinD

Ok, so here are 4 different vehicles that I snapped the last time Sam, Willy and I visited Puckapunual Tank Mueseum about 3 months or so ago.
For once I have pics of a tank and haven't had to travel 4 million kms to get them....
