Allied Power Gaslo.Line RAM Build Complete

Hello everyone, here are some pictures of my RAM Badger ready for painting. I've been away for a month but now I am back it will receive my full attention! Thanks to Olivier at Quarter Kit for donating the resin kit.

In an effort to improve my modelling skills I have done some scratch building to reflect details I have seen on photographs. On the upper surface I have placed a hand rail that many RAMs had added in service to help infantry mount. This flametank would have been a troop transporter in its former role. I have also added two small mounts which I believe were used for towing. You can see them at the back. On the rear I have used styrene card to represent strengthening that many RAMs had installed in advance of Operation Overlord to hold wading equipment. This would have been added in the field like the handrail so I did not have to be too precise to get a realistic match! I used the base kit's headlight guards to mock up something simliar to the real thing. I have tried to give the front end a beat up look, partly to hide my scratch building errors! For a bit of character I have jammed a pickaxe into the front right guard where some lazy crweman has left it after a job.

let me know what you think but if you recommend any changes be quick because it's getting painted on Saturday!

I've really enjoyed the other GB posts guys and I'm taking it all in!
