Drain covers - on the left a trial using brass rod soldered together, not good enough and then tried just drilling and cutting out the shape from a bit of thick foil.

A manhole cover made from 2 sections of acrylic. The top section has had holes drilled into it and this section will be fastened to the solid bottom section..
The polyfiller on the road has had a hole cut into it, to put the manhole cover into.  Next job is to get some colour on the road, then add the manhole cover and the 2 drain covers.

And there is enough left to build a sideboard - one of my mother's sayings when my dad had built something out of wood, from a design in his head.

Is this the religious side to you Msea,

Will not mention religion - don't wish to be hit with a thunderbolt again !!!
First coat of colour on the road and pavement and a coat of pledge on top of this, ready for a couple of coats of wash.
Second photo shows the open machine gun box with coat of green on the outside ( lighter shade than the tank, to show that its an addition to the tank) and a coat of pale grey on the inside.

Two panels for the driver to give information and control switches.

Will soon be switched on - the control wires and pipes have now been fitted to the side of the cabin.  The 2 driving handles have also been fitted, when solid and the panels have been painted, will fit them on top of the pipes.

One of the machine guns started to go inside the open box, will remove the wheels and place on a swivel gun stand.

Barrel and shield added to the machine gun, when solid will add the last little parts.
