JGSDF Type 96 Grab Handles!

Well, I've been mostly adding the many grab handles and lifting rings to the hull since the last update and think I've almost done them all. I still have some really tiny "T" shaped tie downs to add but won't until the final stages for fear of losing them. The lifting hooks and chains work well but each link at the end of each chain needs stretching with a pair of tweezers or similar or they won't go over the rings.

There is really not much more to do but it's been fun so far. Even all the handles have gone on fine and have not broken under my sausage fingers. I'll be putting this aside for a while as the final weathering on the M47 beckons.
