I've been working on the AFV M-88A1 kit for quite a while now and the problem with having all the TMs is that I can't seem to help from trying to build everything I can see.

In addition to the interior and a lot of added detail to the exterior, I'm doing the entire engine compartment as well.

And in the front I've completely done the main winch and blade cylinders. Here are a few shots of the build and the rest (and everything else on the vehicle) are here.

Have to admit there's a lot of "trial and error" getting everything to fit when you're basically guessing on how big things are .
