More Work On The Patton

I'm slowly getting on with the model and have now almost finished off the lower hull. So far construction has gone without a snag, however some care does need to be taken when removing some of the tiny parts from the sprues. I find a fine saw works the best and stops parts breaking up. 

The light clusters needed a bit of sanding on their edges which ensured the fenders fitted correctly. Some fine lead wire was used for cabling on the lights as well. The only Belgian specific modification at this stage was the exhausts which were adapted and added to using plastic hollow rod. Everything else fits very well and needs minimal clean up.
