Small update.

I am using a knife to cut and clean up all the hatches and such, gives them a more 3D look! The one on the left and far right are done the others not.

Cheers Rob.

Small update. Wheels and tracks are painted and are mounted on the vehicle. Side skirts have also been glued down. The less said about the tracks the better. I had no desire to buy and build better tracks so went with the kit ones but they are nasty. All I will say is that the side skirts hide a multitude of sins

Wow.... Lots of excellent progress. Definitely some really nice models being produced, and a lot of forward progress.

At my end, not so much.... although I do have some places to hang a hammock...



Those hooks are one reason I bought the PE I did, and I almost couldn't use them as they were fiddly to install.

Then there are all of the other fiddly things...



So, I said to heck with all that..... and finished building the track. Now, I have to go back and start installing all the tie downs...

Later, Bob

The work going on here is just astounding, well done everyone! You're making me embarrassed that I haven't started and embarrassed to start. But if/when I do get going, I'm starting to lean towards the AFV Club M60A1 as an IDF vehicle from the 1973 Yom Kippur War.



But remember, I said "leaning towards"!

I will be watching with interest. I have this kit in my stash and it was almost my choice to build as well.

Turret is wery bussy,there is a lot of parts on it.
Some plumbing is required because all electric cables on the turret are missing.

Great work everyone.

Igor: in for round two! Nice.

No progress to report on my end, but I did receive some aftermarket stowage to clutter up the bustle rack.

Happy Modeling,
Zon

Update on the Centurion. Making slow progress. The Staple in the track is a temporary measure while the glue set, and one of the lift handles has gone missing and will be replaced.

I have spent more than hour of work to lay down electric cables and I think they look very convincing.

Turret has been completed.
I have always loved those russian turets filled with a lot of stuff on it.

That really is a busy looking turret Igor. Very nice work on the wiring, very convincing indeed.

Coming along nicely Norman. Not sure if you want to do some research or not, but if you do, have you seen:

Thanks very much Peter. I hadn't actually seen those sites, but I do have Simon Dunstan's Haynes Workshop Manual on the Centurion, and there are 2 episodes on the Chietan's Hatch videos which are on one of the preserved tanks and which are very useful.
