Hi People!

After long time, I come back with this kit.

As I rebuilt most of the main frame parts, the next step has been dedicated to rivets... More than 1000 parts... Thanks to my Punch and Die...

The floor added on the rear for gun service is provided with 3 resin parts, moulding is nice but unforunately, all the pics I found show a metallic floor, not a wood one. I decided to built a new part adding the frame used to fit the crane.

More rivets and bolts...

Some details should be added on the floor : the crane is rather good, but the moveable part on the floor is wrong in shape and should be changed, the box on the rear is designed to recieved the propulsive charges is not glued as it would be completely rebuilt.

To be continued of course...
