Be My Valentine (tank)

Work on the Valentine has gone extremely well so far. The first few stages deal with lots panels being added to the lower hull. Time spent checking the fit of these parts ensures a decent fit as in some places the instructions are rather vague. However the detail is just superb.

The suspension units although quite complicated looking assembly's actually build up very quickly and are built fully moveable. Of note are the suspension springs which are plastic but are actually flexible! The units look fantastic and should look even better under some paint. The wheels also are rather nice and again should scrub up well.  Tracks wise I am going to use AFV Club's own set of workable tracks as I think they will offer better detail and allow me to get the correct tension without too much trouble.
