    I think it's looking great!!!!!!! Very clean work. Looking forward to seeing details of the track assembly.. I have this kit, and the tracks appear to be quite a piece of work.. Hope you post some "step by step" photos...:thumb:

    the tracks are insanely easy the only problem is each link has 8 rivets which really HAVE to be built so ill have to work out how to do them i have a bag of half-beads that may work ill try a few things and post pics..promise:p

    This is looking very good indeed! I purchased this kit as well and hope to build it someday. It sounds like the kit has a few problems to deal with? Any chance of you outlining the major issues before the next foolhardy modeler races in?

    i covered a few of these in the "mk4 qestion thread" its mainly down to the formers being off and a few misfit parts im working from TWO kits here to cover my ass if something goes wrong so far ive only had to build the center hull and sponsons a second time ill try and give this kit a overview when im done its worth the greif its big and has a nice heavy feel to it:mrgreen:

    OOOOHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! I'm so sorry to see that. I was starting to like this thread, because constructions threads about WWI tanks are quite rares.

    not as sorry as i was ........words were said that would have made a sailor blush:curse: ill be giving it another go sometime not this side of this year im afraid ive still got my ft-17 which i will do as a build thread its in hold at the moment i was gonna re start it (i had the sense to scan it) and build the inside and engine

    C'mon, Erare humanum est
    Next time you know that you have to store the models in a very safe place
    It's very good to have the scaned model , just in case...
    Anyway good luck with the FT-17 ! :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Having recently had a "shelf incident" where I lost two models and damaged three others, I can relate to the pain!:cry:
    Still, this looks like it could be the perfect opportunity to do a battle-damaged and heavily weathered version!
    I do hope you stick with it as I think this is an interesting model and we could all learn from your experience reviving this model!

    less of a shelf incident more of a "piling stuff up into unstable jenga style piles" ironic thing is the wardrobe is actully a glass fronted shelved unit that holds all my other models a may try another type of project instead of going back to my ft-17s(i have two from 2 diffent publishers) just yet:cry:to many painful memories
