Tiny TOW Tweaks

Some more small improvements now and I started with adding some straps using lead foil on the front wing and added a new strap and better fuel can cap to the jerry can. The antenna mount came from the spares box too. The fording exhaust was next for a bit of surgery as the kit item really bears no resemblance to the real thing.

After digging around in the spares I came up with a suitable bit of etch for the screening. The moulded kit detail was removed and a piece of plastic rod added in it's place. The etch was rolled to the right diameter and attached to the model via a couple of brackets. The exhaust looks way better than the original part.

Here's how the original looks,


  1. Nice start and the model looks well detailed...look forward to seeing more.

  2. It's a great kit out the box and an easy one to build too glad you like it.
