Very nice indeed!

I am building something similar (but in black) - just waiting for a packet of bolt heads for the plates (they were forgotten!) and I've decided not to fit the rear hull bar armour as it looks a little delicate given my driving style :D

I notice you haven't fitted the armour plates over the front wings (surrounding the front indicators)

Hey,

Ooh nice can’t wait to see yours, in all fairness the rear armour is pretty tough you will probably be fine with it I was surprised how strong it was,

Cheers. I haven't worked out how to post pics on here yet! But there are a few on FaceBook! The other issue for me with the bar armour is that I have now utilised the rear fuel barrels - one holds a battery capacity display and the other one houses the on/off and volume control switches :D

Use an app called Tapatalk that’s what a buddy told me to use ooh very nice I put my whole top lower hull on magnets and bonded the rear plate to the top so it all lifts of in one unit for easy access your build does sound epic and can’t wait to see it mate

Thanks Eastern Front,

Really appreciate it, I use to have a thew ww2 tanks but decided to sell them and go down the modern tank route after going tankfest for the past thew years I e got to like my modern tanks more, but I still have my 1/16 tiger 131 replica,

As for the weathering it will be coming along once I’ve painted a thew more bits up on the challey, I’m still waiting for the bird table antenna that goes on top to arrive once that’s here and painted and on the weathering can begin and the electrics can go back in :thumbup:

Hopefully you'll know the answer to something on the Megatron that has been bugging me - what are the circled bits (not the headlamps!)Image
