C for moulding and detail quality.

I see what you mean, it's a little sparse considering its size.  Maybe throw some kit and stowage bins in to make up for it?
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

It reminds me of the Abbot SP's big (very big) brother.

To be honest, it *was* a paper tank, never coming off of the drawing boards.  Even the WoT model is sparse:

Does that make it an "Archbishop" or even an "Archimandrite"  if we follow the naming of UK SPGs?

Looking at the size of it, it should be an 'Archbishop of Canterbury'!  :o
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

It made it as far as a mock up.  The turret was wooden and the hull was from a Conquerer.

Thanks Gang !

Well we are in lockdown again ::) So painting time.
Some stage one paint and decals



Keeping with the theme, its bench buddy, also in stage one paint and decals. I am now calling these two Zig and Zag


Mossie, I did a bit of extra stuff, but not wanting to get too carried away. Planning to go more for a post exercise finish, hence going Bronze Green scheme for era. Hopefully that is where it ends up

It looks great, simple often works best, especially when it's bronze green.  :wub:

The FV215 now looks fully prepared to completely ruin the opposition's day!
