I could not get the turret bin to fit, so I decided to go with a basket. The joy of WOTIF.
Thanks to Sam Dwyer for the push to do the texture finish. Looking at 1:1 scale cents, the cast surface is very apparent. After masking, a stubby brush stabs Mr S 500 on the cast parts. It dries pretty quick, and in about an hour, a sanding sponge knocked down the high points.
Couldn't resist breaking out the blu-tack for a quick mock up shot...
Still to do:
Comd's 50 cal (anyone got pics of the mount? I've got a spare Academy M113 .50 mount and bracket)
MBSGD.... thinking lower front turret, 4 per side; or, 8 hull mounted ones adjacent to the driver (similar to ADATS, YPR)
Tracks. The kit tracks are way too tight, I think I mounted the idler too far forward.
Stowage bin for left side of turret
APU on rear of turret
turret tie-down loops
fender mounted jerry can racks
