LOL...I knew I was forgetting something...makes sense now, the kids and wife are always running out to the store when I come up from the cave!! Thanks guys! Sad thing is I have only touch the surface of the PE...not sure I thought this one all the way through....LOL!!!!!!
Figured I'd better update where I'm at. Would be a LOT farther along, but my Friday day off turned into a complete wash when I found out that daycare was "closed for black friday". Of course, I still got the priviledge of paying for daycare.
Anyhoo, snuck in a bit of build time tonight! Got the hull all sealed up, Friul replacement sprockets/idlers in, started in on the tracks and some of the etchery, and one of the Armorscale MGs installed:
Jeez Louise you guys are really turning up the heat. love the MG barrel. Gotta get me one of those.
Interior work slowly continues. Pin washes with AK dark wash the stumped, what Mig calls it, (aka blended ) I leave the brush on the dirty side and pull the grime down over the rest of the walls to start the...er...well... griming process and the PE ammo racks with ammo.
All the talk about how nice the Tristar kits are, here an example. The straps on the ammo cans are molded with the open space underneath. And brother are they tiny.

OMG dupes that looks really great. Love the way the tracks drape over the rollers and wheels. But I have to ask... really took hours? I have to see if i still have the pics of the jog I use and how I drill out all the holes in rapid succession. I've done 2 runs of track in under 40 minutes. And ditto on the price.
