Hi guys

Progress so far with this (for me) major project.

I Panzershop Mk1 Male is the base ( I know, how could I !!! ) but as MOTHER was made of lighter plate than the production ones, the rivet runs are not the same and the spacing being almost double that of the kit !!..but not quite !! (so no I could'nt just double up !! darn it )

So here it is at an early stage

I have had to , other than using the NUTTER with the (Not yet released) Dome Head type rivet tips (about 6/8 weeks till release).
New Hex only tips first, f they are in the factory BTW so will be out soon.

1. changed the sponsons
2. Added a "vaux" interior with engine and one sponson detaied, moved hatches and doors, roof detail changes, bow plate , tow hooks, and some more detail stuff.

So here it is, whatda ya think guys , fire away..

Definitely a labor of love!

I'm always fascinated by the WW1 tank designs, looking forward to seeing your efforts come to life.
