Here's the start of the build, the lower hulls and suspension. I found that the swinging arms need careful lining up to ensure that the wheels all touch the ground later on. Detail looks pretty good on the kit but I am going to use a couple of RB barrels and eduard etched sets for the turret roof stowage bin. I'll scratch any other details and improvements.
Moving onto the Sherman the figure has now arrived, a very nice Alpine item which is now in primer ready to paint. The base has also been sprayed and gloss varnished as the finish on the photo frame was not that good. I've also found a nice 4th armoured badge which will look great mounted on the base.
