Here is my latest work, Meng's FT-17 riveted turret, painted in US army colours. The little base is part of the kit!

Nice job. Didn't realise the riveted turret version was out yet.

Very nice. Just one point. You have the gear lever mounted the wrong way round, it should be against the side wall not in the centre.

"You have the gear lever mounted the wrong way round, it should be against the side wall not in the centre."

You are right, I just checked the instructions...
I will keep the doors closed...

Thank you all for your comments.
As allways with Meng, it's so easy to build and follow instructions (If we don't mind the little mistake I did.. )
I guess some other brands should take inspiration from this...
