Very nice work Dave. Glad you were able to push thru after the bad decal/transfers incident. My only advice would be to seal up the drivers' hatches. The were VERY heavy and would not be slightly ajar as you have them unless the crewman actually inserted something to jam it open. Hope this helps

Thanks a lot Roy!

You have a sharp eye.

The hatches will be opened in the final setting, probably with some crew in them.

When they're open, they hinder the turret traverse, so I closed them for now to make my life a bit easier. the spring is also not attached yet, just in case I change m mind later and want to close the hatches anyway.

Thanks again!
