You have speeded up, I seem to have slowed down, I'll let you take over for a bit.

Don't do it Bob - just enjoy your modelling don't go for 97 models a day like Zak.

Someone's got to take up where Dave leaves off. Are you going for a rest now Dave?

Hi Bob,
Look forward to seeing your build. Can you share the build with pictures, problems, techniques so we can see how it all comes together.
Cheers,
Bigkev

Done a bit over the past few days, lower hull and all wheels made and sprayed. Inner turret and main gun sprayed. It has a date stamped in the hull of 1997, it isn't as refined as todays standard for Tamiya but it's going together very well. just a couple of pictures to see where I'm at.

Time makes no difference Bob the finished article is always excellent.  Just enjoy what you do and when you do it.

Hi Bob,
That looks really great so far.
As Andy said, those tracks look great and realistic.
Hopefully when the eyes improve, we will see this finished in all it's Bob C glory!
Cheers,
Bigkev
