Rather than carrying the extras as spares, how about making the rears dualies?

I had thought about it, but I only have the one spare, so I checked a newer MG that I have in the stash but the wheels just don't look right. I had also thought about adding tracks, full length or half, but decided to go the easy way  :thumbsup:

One of my least favourite activities....chaining up a truck. Especially in the spring thaw when you get soaked with freezing mud  :blink: Still a cool looking idea !

Coming along nicely Capt  :thumbsup: With that driver it obviously belongs to the local Home Guard's "Cavalry Section". Probably made up from the younger members of the local gentry  ;D

I like the jacked-up look - really suits it. :thumbsup:

I'm just going to scratch somat up using existing 35th scale dun stocks. That's why I like the water cooled look, easy enough to cut up some tube and voila ! I do like those heavy guns tho, and was thinking of adding one.

Thank you Sir ! Not really happy with the Vickers, but once I add some details and the mount I'm sure it will be fine.

Thanks Chris ! Actually looking forward to doing some more work on them tonite. Have to source out the ammunition drum and make some spares to hang in the car. Might redo the Vickers as well, found a pice that's a little beefier that might give it a better look.
