Well after two years I have finally finished her. I am just waiting for a sound unit to arrive. But here are the photo's of her finaly painted and ready for the track.

I can not build figures but found these on a local market toy stall for 50p each

Think I might a little plaque for this saying something like! " LOOK I tried the tech Pubs and it don't work NOW pass the **!** Hammer and I'll Fix it my way"
I could do more to her but I want her as a working tank and not for show.
Thanks for looking and watching my build and for all the usefull comments and as the saying goes "Keep on tanking".
regards Denzil.

Good Morning,
Congratulations, Sir, on an excellent build completed. I see plenty of wonderful, scratch built detail that you have added, visible even to the most cursory of glances. That it functions and drops the Bridging Unit as it is supposed to in scale is a testament to your skillset. Looking forward to some video of this as completed.
regards,
Painless Wolf

I look at this build and I would'nt know where to begin, amazing, sometimes you see a build that ought to be in a glass case on display, this rates. I suppose the problem now is after that what next? A Saracen,Pah, an Abbot? a waste of ten minutes building time! I suppose it will have to be a real tour de force next, Perhaps a diorama of an Alvis Stalwart slowly sinking in the River Weser? Sorry, its the flashbacks! Yet again congratulations on a great build. shaun

Thank you very much for all your comments, as a retired mechnical engineer I still get a kick out of making a model work and still be in scale.
My next model is either a AS-90 or a chally 2 I have just got the plans for the AS-90 and that is proberly going to be next one. But I'm also toying with the idea of building a bradley if I can find the plans. do to the fact I picked up a auto firing BB gun (approx 400 rpm) at a toy fair for £11.40 and the mechanism is only 50mm x 60mm x 80mm with a barrel of 120mm long and I reckon it might fit into a 1/12 scale turret, the power supply is 6V.
My brain cells are still fizzing from getting the bridgelayer to work so we'll see?

A fantastic achievement, in what now almost seems almost like ancient Forum history. :clap: This example also serves to highlight what a rich store of treasures the Forum's Archive is. :thumbup:
I also like the crewmen with articulated arms and legs, as they remind me of 'Bill and Ben- the Flowerpot Men'...for reasons that even escape me. :) :D
