Begun in 2012, before we came-out to NZ and then relegated to the 'Shelf of Forgetfulness' until this afternoon, when it was unearthed and sprayed Tamiys 'Sky'

Couldn't be more helpful could it !! :good - When I bought the kit I also bought the Vanguard book and the Squad/Sig Walkaround.

Whilst I really am 'modelled-out' just at the moment, I couldn't help 'fiddling' with this kit this afternoon - the surprising 'spring-like' temperature may have had a lot to do with this...

The progress you see here isn't all down to me either, all the filling and sanding that you see is all courtesy of Melissa Emma Jackson (Age eight-and-three-quarters). She really is a 'daddies girl' at the moment and has some good modelling skills too. Anyways here's some self explanatory photo's.

Yep there's a lot of sink-marks that need attention, and there's a h*ll of a lot of doors and hatches aswell.

I did all the running-gear last week. Took about ninety minutes, lots to see, even when the huge wheel/tyres are in-place.

AFN, thanks for looking.

Glad you progressed so far! I didn't get a chance to dig out the chest of material I sent to Trumpeter who then released the kit under Hobby Boss (for whom I have no connection and therefore no samples).

Jeff's walk around image set is excellent. I have both the civilian and military manuals (field and technical) as well as 1/4 scale blue prints (yes, actual blue ink plans) of the variant they never released; XM706E2
