T2 (M31).
I've gotten bogged down on this & invloved in some other projects & fallen way behind.

It has been a while since I posted last & have been meaning to get some pix up.

I have finished the engine compartment except for some paint. I have started attaching tool boxes to the outer hull. I have made tool cabinets for the interior & am currently attaching handles to all the drawers (96 of 'em). I have started the fleeting sheave inside the turret. Got to finish all that.

Got to get back to work on the winch, seats, etc, inside the hull & some details. Need to start all the boom assemblies.

31 May may be iffy at this rate ....

Pix in a week, maybe ....

I have both M32 and Bergepanther still in the box. I got kind of bummed out when I read the reviews about how grossly inaccurate they were. Unfortunately I bought them before I learned about the reviews. PE and other after market parts are very rare in the mid-east and very expensive to ship them too. I hope I'll get around to it.

Well, work has been started on my UR-77 "metroit" a 2S1 hull based Mine-field breaching system using rocket delivered DET-chord.

Looks good so far, but I am just messing witht he suspension of the SKIF kit to be converted.

Hi Campaign fellows,
my VT72B is going well. I posted some pics in the GB forum and made progress meanwhile.

The hull is nearly complete, I'll soon build the dozer blade and the crane boom. I treid to keep most of the mobile parts ... moveable, a nice challenge to fit all the jacks together and still working.

I'll have a one week leave pretty soon and hope I'll be able to get the building over by the end of it. If I don't come across airbrush trouble (Martinn, my best wishes for a quick fix ), I should complete my entry in time.

My M8 cargo tractor is 90% built and the cab interiors are painted. Only the exterior of the cab detail to build and then on to airbrushing. Well on schedule at the moment. Will show some pictures next weekend.
Ta ta!

My M88 is ready for paint but my AB can't be used because of a broken part as you already might know. I've got to wait for a replacement....

How are we all doing with our projects? I must admit to not much progress on mine for the simple reason that it's my first major resin project and I'm taking things slow and easy.
