    Delivering Monty's Tank

    You are quite right, I didn't think I'd be able to get at the winch once in place and it's highly visible.

    Welcome back Pete, I hope you are fully recovered and feeling fit? I've missed seeing your progress and as usual more excellent work!

    Thank you Dimitris, I loved making it! Thank you bazer, it was a vehicle to try new techniques, I'm well pleased with it!

    Right the vehicles are now just about finished, I've painted the trailer, add decals to the Grant and weathered both, may need to do a bit more but I'll get them on the ground work first. I also need to add the tie downs for the Grant but I'll do that towards the end! I've also added ballast to the truck, thanks for the advice Andrew Jones!

    Thanks Badder, it has some of the smallest plastic parts I've ever encountered!

    Thank you, that's what I'll do then along with some other useful bric-a-brac!

    Been thinking about the need for balast Andrew, do you think 4 or 5 50 gallon drums full of sand would be appropriate, after all it would have been easy to obtain in the desert?

    Thanks for the heads up, I'll need to research that!

    Thank you, I'll certainly try!
  11. So it's back to the desert for me with a simple little diorama to show off the Merit 1/35th M19 Diamond T Tank Transporter. The tank for transport is Monty's M3 Grant from the Tamiya 1/35 kit. As it's dificult to see the driver in the cab, i'm adding a local inhabitant utilising the transport of the time! So the basic layout is: With the componants as mentioned above!
