Well I`ve now made a new set of bogies/wheels for this one and to backdate them , cut of the track skid and return roller , these will be replaced with a Formations resin set. This has taken a little longer than I thought it would , 2 days later and I`ve still only completed one side. Also attached the Sponson Fillers to the lower hull , these are a work of art and fit like glove. I should be able to re-assemble the hull sections by the end of the week and then get onto the turret. Thanks for looking guys.

New set of bogies built up......

And attacked with the razor saw.......

Replaced the 3 peice nose with a one peice cast nose. Tamiya one is smooth as a very smooth thing so I attacked it . Painted a coat of MEK over it to soften up the plastic then loaded an old stiff brush with MEK and pressed into the plastic keeping the brush at right angles to the plastic giving a stipple effect. Turned out quite well , gave it a quick rub with some 800 W/D wet to take any edges off, job done.
Lower hull with the sponson filler and new nose attached......

More to follow if you`re still interested or even if you`re not
