Firefly hybrid Ic WIP

Response to WEEKLY UPDATE - 14.5.2017

Hi all,
Here's my hybrid Firefly in the making. I used the well known Heller kit together with the old Esci/Italeri hull front, OKB tracks and some spare bits from Dragon Shermans. I didn't have a decent gun shield (I do have an UM one but it's not that good) so I reworked one to match a Firefly shield and house a RB model barrel. The sprockets needed spacers to take the new tracks so that got fixed as well. All it needs now is some stowage and maybe some track armour on the turret. Any suggestions regarding stowage are welcome - I don't want to cake it with tracks as I put a bit of effort to make it look like a Firefly. I'm tempted to put a length of tracks hanging on the bracket I fixed between the front mudguards but I don't know if that's not too much load. I have Dan Taylors ammo boxes on order which will go as part of the stowage. I'm planning to put some camo on the barrel - was chicken wire exclusive to US tanks or was it seen on Commonwealth tanks as well? My plan is to do this one as a Canadian tank, no markings yet still under investigation.

Here we go, all feedback welcome.
