This one will go in the same dio as my quad and 25 pound gun.

Basic construction complete, shadow coat and desert yellow applied then glossed for weathering and decals. 

Mock up with AM stowage:

Will look great on the dio Al, I think the stowage adds a lot of interest.

Looking great Al, glad to see you have been able to make some bench time. Hope the progression to wellness is still marching on.

Looks very nice to me....They need to make some more Military vehicles in 1/25th or 1/24rth scales. A 6x6 or ? would be nice.

Thanks Curt, the bench time is helping me cope but the doctors say it may take a long time yet before she comes home!! I'll Skype as and when buddy.

Looks great! The moulding detail on the stowage parts is very nice, they should look fantastic once you've painted/detailed them.

And as a Canuck I really appreciate the representation of the good ol' Maple Leaf stuff you've been doing

Thanks Kats.

Well it seems I made a right royal screw up with the decals on the FAT and 25 pounder......... extensive research has shown that no Canadian units were ever involved in the North African campaign.

The Canadian decals were apparently meant to be used on vehicles painted in European camo!!!   Oh well!! 

I'm still glad I used them, as I think our Canadian friends tend to get over looked concerning their part in WWII, so bought another set from the UK Tamiya supplier in order the have the FAT and this one from the same unit!!

Still a fair way to go but this is where it's at right now:

An update for my few loyal fans!!! LOL

Not quite there yet but almost.

I used some of the ammo boxes that came with the kit but also some from Accurate Armour. I also used a couple of 'Captured Wehrmact Jerry Cans' from Italeri.

I look at first, the early fotos, then the finished one with full complement of equipment,and I can see how great skill and extra details can make a good kit into a real show piece. Thanx.
