    Dear George

    NICE JOB!   Very Handsome! I have a few of those Airfix kits and  I put one together once. You did far better than I. I seem to recall I was always breaking something and that the kit seemed terribly fragile.  It was probably my fault and not the kits. You finished it far more expertly and excellently.

    Praise and compliments.

    Many thanks for the responses chaps.

    Otto, you’re right about fragility, the exercise did not go entirely smoothly; a part was missing from one of the kits so I had to fabricate a bit,  I spent a fair amount of time crawling around on the floor looking for dropped bits and I see I managed to fit a bogey unit round the wrong way! A good pair of flush side cutters helped a lot in getting bits of the sprues without breakage, especially the turret aerials.

    I’m working on a few of these and a Fujimi SPG at the moment. Getting my 20mm Burma Skirmish game sorted (although it is proving a loooong process!)

    This is the second pair of tanks I’ve done in 30 years!  Like a lot of people, in my young days I must have built the Airfix AFV catalogue two or three times, figures replaced vehicles a long time ago.  I did enjoy doing them so may have to revise the projects list to get more tanks in.
