Hi all
Here's my latest finished project. It's the Tamiya kit, with a lot of extras from various AM sets, such as Legend and Black Dog.
Hope you like it and do feel free to comment.
Jacob

Beautiful work! May I make two comments?

1) maybe look at your lighting rig? Your pics have a strong yellowish hue. I use "true" light bulbs. I forget their technical description

2) Totally feel free to ignore this nitpick: the front armor slabs for the driver's compartment laid flat against the glacis when open. See how yours sit a little proud? And see that rectangular cross beam between them? That's actually the lock that keeps them in place. Have a look here: http://svsm.org/albums/M8_Greyhound/IMG_3479.jpg

Thanks Roy for the comments. You're right about the lighting, it's really not the best "glow" in the color. The pictures was taken with my cheap cell phone, which probably didn't add to the value of the quality either
And I do see what you mean about the angle of the open hatches. I really wasn't aware of this, but I think the molded on beam, might be on the rather large side of what it should have been, when comparing to the nice photo you've send, I actually think, that the hacthes are resting on this beam, insted of being held in place by it. I'll keep this in mind, when I have a go on the M8, which is already in my stash
Thanks again
Jacob
