The Crusader AA Mark 2 is now complete and away from the bench:

Time to break another out from the stash :-D

I have also made a little progress with the AA mark 1 by adding a little inside detail and also adding the lip around the gun aperture missing from the conversion kit.
It is now also sporting a first coat of green paint:

Updates to follow

The Crusader Mark II AA tank really turned out well, Steve, another great looking small scale vehicle to add to your collection!

Thanks Shaun.
More progress with the Saracens.
First the Mk III. This is now up on its wheels, the headlamps have a couple of gemstones added and I've managed to change those weedy smoke dischargers for some Scorpion ones I had in the spares box:

The ambulance version is now sporting some of its sidelights and indicators courtesy of some lenses from Little Cars:

Unfortunately I ran out of indicators, good job I have some others on their way to me :-D

Lovely jubbly. I'm also a bit of a Little Lenses fan and have a number in stock. The current 1/32nd Crusader that I am building is likely to be a recipient of one or two to replace its moulded in items.

Got ousted from my usual haunt today as the wife was working from home so it was back to the Dining room table so only building allowed.
This time I thought I'd have a go at updating this one with this:

ImageImage

Have managed to get the truck bed built up, replacing the tailgate and rear mudguards. I have also cut out the windows in the body sides too:

ImageImageImage

Have also made a start with the cab, but no pictures as of yet.
Updates will follow.

As my son kindly got this out of the loft for me I thought I better get construction underway:

It is also being built for the Crusader GB over on the ATF.
This mornings work saw me to this stage:

Updates will follow, thanks for lookin' in!

Excellent subject choices and, given what is on my own workbench at the moment, I'm especially keen to watch your 1/32nd Crusader build :grin:

That Kugelblitz conversion is too cool!

The Churchill wheels can drive you batty. Very nice work.

Thanks for the nice comments guys.
Today I was on the Dining room table again, so building only, so I decided to get the 1/32 Crusader to a point whereby I could apply some paint.
Here it is ready minus its running gear and side skirts:
