"take these kits, build them up, and your journey to the dark side of modelling will begin"

but seriously, i've entered the father and son campaign on armorama, i already had the Mkiv tank along with some other WW1 armour kits, and i bought the challenger last week at sutton coalfield when nigel wasn't looking! also in my stash i have the airfix centurian and chieftan kitsso this could turn into great, great, grandfather and son!

nothing to this armour lark!

looks like this one beat the hurricane nigel! i've now finished 50% of my father and son campaign build, it was going to be a straight oob build, but me being me, i could'nt resist a little tweaking on the mesh baskets on the turret. they were solid plastic with a grid pattern to represent mesh, however i picked up some very fine brass mesh at the newark show and got to work cutting out as much of the kit part as i could-




the finished result! definitely looks better than what the kit part would, and now the finished article-



now i just need to get the WW1 tank plus p/e set sorted!
