TRM, Thank you kind sir........ I am really happy with where the turret is so far. With all those weird angles, billions of details, and the fact that in the end all eyes will be drawn to it because the commander's gonna be standing on the turret hatches. There's a cool photo of a tanker, during the battle for France and or the Low Countries. He's standing on the open hatches, kinda like this: \__/. Well that's gonna be my guy in the end. As for the box, well at this point in my "modeling life" I've gotten pretty fair at making them. To say that I love adding them is an understatement...hell I'd put one on the Fledermaus...I just can't figure where I'd do it LOLOLOLOLOL. Thank you again

Well, I put the turret aside for a couple more hours today....... I started working on chassis parts that I know I need to have completed before I get to hull and engine decking. So here are the side engine vents. Eventually they'll be covered with mesh and framework.
"L" & "R"....just like on my socks! Still impressive! I have works some PE sets of "horizontal protective walking surfaces" (that was for Dierk's benefit right there), with about the same amount of pieces...if nothing else, I know construction can be a bit trying at times! These looks spot on! Really enjoying seeing this unfold!

Well, today I worked on a part that I have come to HATE..... We all can relate to a part that want to build, but turns into a PAIN IN THE ........ This one is the Spare Road wheel holder. This thing, man.... first I had to modify the actual part so that it translates to 1/25th scale, AND would be sturdy/durable. Here is the 1/6th RC version and what I created............
