Small update Abrams has been secured with some Bob's Buckles and relay wire need to order some more surprising how quick you use them up and main blocks all dry fitted for now more smaller fittings to go yet.

Rob and Ray thank you and everyone for the likes.

Well gave all the parts a clear coat and started on the decals but having a bit of a mare nearly every one has split and in some cases just disintegrated on me

so having to paint in and repair some of the bigger ones.

hmmm, might have to make a copy of my decal sheet when I do my build

 

That might be a good idea Ray it will save on the frustration trying to piece them together.

Gidday Beefy, great job on this. I know almost nothing about hovercraft but this looks like it might have been a considerable size, compared with the tank it's carrying. Regards, Jeff.

Ler to watch all Newcastle games good bad and ugly but definitely not Sunderland games.  :nono:

 

Small update been working on the base some more first layer of water and starting to build up the spray really taking the stuffing out of me this build. I know I'll get my   :coat:

Nice work with the fuzzy stuff, beefy.

 

I took a look at some of my old photos & found 3 taken of an LCAC at speed off the Virginia coast.  Unfortunately they're not the best quality, but they do show the shape of the wake behind the craft.  Looks like you're nailing it. :yes:

OK so calling this one done added more fuzzy stuff around the rear of the base after looking at some google images and a closer look at @JohnWS images he has kindly posted as always you come up with the good John.  👍

This is the second out of the box build for me this year the reason for that is just to busy at work with new models also being part of a fantastic team through all this trouble in the world can still build new and innovative things like these but only 725 days to go before I say that is enough.
