Nice work. Got a resin conversion for this and you've done it quicker from scratch :oops:

This would be an ideal first scratch build project as it’s only made up of flat sides.

I don’t normally build AFV’s but I’m slowly going over to the dark side as they are quick to build and you get lots of options.

Great job! I really liked that tapered barrel work, and the boxes you added to it.

I'm starting to prefer AFVs too, mainly so I don't have to deal with canopies.

Great build; blitz and scratch-build together; fantastic!

Great finish, Alan. It's good to see not only an AFV but also a scratch built conversion in a blitz. Top work!

Cheers guys this has been on of the most enjoyable builds I have done in a long time.

Blitz are excellent ways to get back in the swing if you mojo is lacking.

Anyone looking for a very Blitzable subject, any of the Plastic Soldier tanks will fit the bill, they have low parts count, good detail & excellent part fit.

If I get a chance before the GB ends I might have another go

I used the excellent World War II AFV Plans, British Armored Fighting Vehicles, by George Bradford ISBN 978-0-8117-3453-0 it contains 90 pages of scale drawings covering an excellent selection of AFV.
