Good completed model Dave. Is that brasswork around the exhausts?

Yes, a few bits of etched brass in the kit, exhaust covers, clips, chains and springs.

Spent some of yesterday cleaning up the parts, lots of sanding and carving, but although the track was not brilliant, the finished undercoated tank looks the part. A quick build as the tracks are in sections and a lot less parts to put together, no interior here. I can disguise the tracks with some mud hopefully.

Your tank army is coming along nicely - will look and try and find a photo i saw a long time ago about the German army training in the 1920 with wood sides made to look like a tank, added to I think it was a small car or a motor bike. 
That would be a good addition to your army.

Very similar - everybody has to start somewhere.
If I remember right I read that at the time the Germans used this as training for tank formation operations but the English press said that if this was the German army, we had nothing to worry about if this was the strength of the tanks they had !!!!  The press has a lot to answer for, they also said that the Japanese could not fly planes because they had bad eyesight, see how that worked out Pearl Harbor ---- I am glad I live now when we don't listen to a bunch of jingoistic newspaper headlines - OHH --- just thought some people still do !!!!!!!

I had my operation 3 weeks ago yesterday so have been taking things steady, hence little input/output and the plethora of mistakes when I post, lol!!

The next one is the progression from the A. This is the B, still designated Sd KFz 101.
This has a longer chassis and more powerful engine.
675 were produced.
This is the Dragon kit.
Two figures are included, one of which is on the previous model.

Of course, the tracks are individual links, 108 supplied for each side, though it looks like it will take less.
Each link is attached to the sprue at 5 points, so 108 x 5 cuts just to remove one side from the sprue, x2 for both sides.
Good job I am not doing much else at the moment.

Completed model up to your usual standard Dave. Your latest looks interesting. Your collection should look quite good by the time you're done. I presume there will be more to come?
