  12. Hi there folks, just managed to have a little time to do some more work, I have now pretty much completed the assembly of the tank, all that's left to be added are a few tools and the tow cables, I'll do those at the end. Since my last update I have made and added the brass tie down brackets and grab handles to the turret. I replaced the aerials with 0.4mm aluminium rod, which look a lot better that those horrible aerials included in the kit. Here are some views of the completed tank, most parts will come off for painting so are just held on for now with Maskol so you may see some gaps, but when I have finished, those should hopefully disappear. The next stages are to take everything off and start to mask the body and turret for the undercoat. Regarding painting, I think at the moment I am going to undercoat with Mig One shot Brown Oxide primer, which has a lovely brown colour, then I am going to attempt the hairspray technique and paint with Tamiya XF-59 Sand and start chipping. I have never done hairspray before so I will try a few times on some spare parts to see how it works and whether it gives me the result that I want. The first parts I will commit will be the wheels before the main body and turret as those would be easier to remedy than the main parts. So that's it for now, I will be back when I have more to show All the best and thanks for looking Ed
