Calling this done..........Fought me every minute of everyday, but finally, I have had enough!!!! I decided to make it different, so, its a Gulf War Bridgelayer and not a bronze green. Many delicate resin parts recast in white metal and to make it different I decided to add the Tamiya Pearson Mine Plough.(Rivet counters keep quiet about it not being a British plough) This plough has 1 more blade fitted than the British, but, it looked right, so went ahead with it. It is fitted with Fruil metal tracks and has replacement light lenses from our friend "Little-Cars". It was initially sprayed in places Bronze Green then hair sprayed, then overall sprayed in Desert Color scheme, then picked at for hours with a tooth pick and cotton bud to reflect the state of a weathered Bridgelayer. The call signs and reg numbers are authentic as I worked from photos of the Gulf War Bridgelayers.

Great build, but I don't see wings or rotors - how does it fly ? :winkgrin:

Thats why I mentioned, calling it done, although indeed the Mark 6 Bridgelayer was an experimental version fitted with wings and rotors(to get it on site quicker)to have added them would have taken another year or so and with so many rivets to rubb down, decided to concentrate on the Mark 5............Hope you like it.................
