Here is my recently completed Africa Korp Panzer II which I started around 1985. Just goes to show that you can't rush these things. :oops:

I added a little extra stowage but it is basically an OOB build.

I must confess that armour is not my area of expertise so please forgive any errors on my part. I think this is only the second 1/35 I've ever finished so I suppose I should be happy with that.
It does look very nice on my shelf though so you never know it may get some company soon.

Hope you like it. :smilie_flagge3:

Nicely done, OT. There's nothing wrong with a long-term project, why rush things? :ha: Although maffs is not my strong point, my calculations would suggest that starting in 1985 equates to a 32 year build rather than 20 though :???:

You are correct Shaun, I seem to have lost a decade somewhere. Now where did I put it? :oops:

Thanks for the kind words guys. Perhaps there will be more tanks in my future?
