    Looks great! It's a great idea to build other parts in between repetitive parts like tracks and engine cylinders. Excellant weathering also!

    Sometimes it can be a problem to see the scale, so I have made two pics with an 1euro coin.

    I'm new here and just been looking through this build......i'm impressed!

    I love the additions you have made, very effective.
    I agree with your view on weathering kits, they really do make a model....they weren't available here until recently so i was using my own powders including cocoa powder!

    Thanks Terminator!
    Powders of different materials are very useful, and anything goes.
    I used chalkdust,coffee etc after tips from other forummembers.

    Looks awesome - I think you should make one of the taillights broken or cracked or something :D

    I'm NOT going to destroy that beautiful taillight!!
    But now as you have mentioned it....I will try to do something on the battlelight on the other side :)

    Josve. This is a crazy big model. I had no idea the size until I worked it out. I decided to do a quick search for some 1/16 scale figures and I think Tamiya has some. This carrier would make a nice diarama piece with 2-3 figures.

    Were you thinking of this?

    Yes I have bought two soldiers from Tamiya in 1:16 :)
    I'll post some shots of them later on when I get home from work,if you want to see how they are.

    And the last detail on the fender.

    I also started to paint on the soldiers that will be a part of the scene.
    Here are the boxes.....

    Cool, I love these guys for dioramas, there great!
    That's one of the reasons I like Fishcarvers threads so much! Well, not to mention he is an imaginative and talented scratch builder, but these guys really bring a scene to "life".
    You listening, Fishcarver?

    The first guy is taking some kind of shape....
    Since you know I'm lost with colors....I have used the colors on the box...
    So don't expect much here!

    That's great Johnny!
    These guys will really perk up the scene around one of your models!

    Can't wait to see the finished dioramas!
