Many thanks for all the nice comments.It is very rewarding getting positive reviews/comments from modellers who I admire myself.

(Maybe I should let them know by writing some positive remarks in their posts.....)

Hi All,

so it´s time for another short update on my progress.

Did repositioning of the transmissinon and started on the oil lubrication line using solder wire and plastic rod.
It´s beginning to look rather busy down there.

Too bad, it is near impossible to see withe the winch and upper hull in place.
Now I am in sort of a dilema; should i continue with the front of the driver/co driver area.
Or should i stop after the seats and radio are in place?
The reason for this is well... see for yourself...


Once the upperboards of the superstructure are in place, you can hardly see more than this.
And I have read in so many books and articles that it is useless to build things you can not see once the model is finished. (waste of time and all that...)
Anyone has any thoughts on this???
Comments are (more than) welcome.

Fantastic work on everything so far. You could always make the upper hull removable so you could view everything underneath?

I have thought abouth that.
The thing is though; the winch is connected to the lower hull and when it is wired, it will pass through a hole in the superstructure, witch in itself is connected to the upper hull.
So for every solution you have another problem
But there's plenty of time to figure something out, for instance, I still have to make those radio's.
Speaking of wich: does anybody have any info as to the size of them. I'm talking abouth the transmitter and receiver FuG 5.
I have plenty of pictures of them, but no measurements.
Thanks in advance
