Hi guys.

made a start on this one,there was quite a big casting block on the back of the NBC pack but other than that all was well.

with these conversions you are using them straight from the start so drivers compartment next😀

 

cheers

Small update,

NBC pack has its handles and step,and spare track links.

 

14FC5FA6-FB4E-4580-9BF6-15C4C9ABD248

 

also a start made on the drivers side wall,

 

6A47A5A6-44CD-4607-9D0B-AA6255F72044

 

three parts went into that with a bit of a clean up and sanding. It’s a bit of looking at the kit instructions and the conversions to make sure you are not missing anything but it looks ok.

 

cheers 

Ivan

Are you going to be using the clansman 353 radios at all Ivan? 

No mate under the screen are the Bowman radios. However beside the screen IS a Clansman because the panel box that should be there wasn’t to be found🤔either I lost it or it wasn’t there 😀

Coming together now,the kit and conversion parts go together well although there some sanding to be done particularly on the front slope of the drivers side plate,

Hi hope everyone had a good Crimble!

A bit of actual plastic bashing today, I left the resin and superglue alone😀

Running gear and rear bins done.

The rear station has been left off so when I put the metal tracks on I should be able to adjust them.

 

cheers

Ivan
