    Very nicely done VP. Plenty of detail and nicely weatherd. I'm really impressed with the exhaust, it really does look rusty.

    If there was one criticisum it would be that a couple of the 'turns' in the stowage of the SWR tow rope are too tight. SWR doesn't bend like that without a lot of force or damage. But hard to fault the model, well done.

    Agreed mate, bloody thing was either like that or pointing straight up in the air.
    Now to give it to a 2 & 4 year old to see how quickly they can utterly 'desert rat' it.....

    Good model VP.
    Haven't made any for years.
    Always like a rear view.

    Agree with the rest VP. Anyone can build it out of the box, but you've got to hand it to those modellers who can make the models looked weathered, damaged and build scenery to match,that's a step up -proper military modelling. Has anybody suggested putting up a post showing models the like of VP and co. I bet there are some cracking models out there.

    That came out great. I like how you did the detail on the tank:)

    That Is actually 'out of the box', I've come back to this spoddishness over the last year and things have come on a bit since I was a kid, that kit's by Dragon and comes with all the photo-etch brass, aluminium barrel and fiddly metal bits included in the box..all for under £25!..... but yes, I am rather pleased with the exhaust, first one I've rusted that looked right.:)........
    Oh deary deary me.....again.

    Check out: http://www.missing-lynx.com/ (gallery) if you want to see some kits that expose mine as the amateur job it actually is. (particularily ones by Steven Zaloga, who many might know from the technical military history books he's written)

    One thing that stopped me from picking up the hobby again is the expense, even a small 1/72 airfix job is in the area of £4+ before one even starts. Has anybody seen the model display at Muckleburgh , Norfolk there are a fair few aircraft models there, and a mtb of the vietnam period with scenery.
