Hi John!

Thank you!

I painted it "by the (HB) manual", I used Gunze Mr. Hobby light green 303.

Yes, the only option in this model. BTW, I know that Portuguese Army used this "thing" during colonial wars and I heard about one with a 3 color cammo.

Cheers!

Marco

I'd blame it for being on too many campaigns at the same time! It now reminds me to get on to painting my 234/1. See you next week Marco. Cheers, Tat

The undercarriage came together pretty good but the cab floor did not fit together very well at all.

Way to go Dillon -- that was a quick build!

How's the fit with the Tamiya kit, any issues encountered? Am building the same 234/1 for this campaign, though the DML one.

Cheers,

Tat

I have a few days off from work and the weather sucks outside so I can get alot done. The fit was ok but the floor inside the cab did not fit good. You can't really tell now but it bugged me. The extra fuel tank hold downs PE parts were kinda a bear but not the worst thing I have done. I spent tonight working on a diorama for it. It's my 1st time casting rocks. I think it will work but right now it kinda looks like a Bday cake.

On the 234/4, can anybody show me the correct location of sub-assembly H (with the radio)? I have trouble with it colliding with the gun support frame.

I built some trees to help my diorama today. I think its coming along pretty good. I am still waiting for the plaster on the base to dry. It still feels cold.
