Got this one finished to-day.

Some of the stowage and ammo boxes are Tamiya kit issue, and  some by Accurate Armour.

The kit does not provide aerials and the holes in the aerial bases were about 1mm dia....... way to big to make aerials from styrene. So I drilled two short pieces of 1mm styrene rod, with a .5mm drill and inserted them in the aerial bases. Then I use some .5mm copper wire for the aerials.

Now it needs to be set in the dio with my Quad Tractor and 25 Pounder.

That is one cracker of a build Al, the amount of detailing is very impressive.

The main gun looks to be mounted upside down, .
