Nice choice there Mr Ward! nerd I have fancied one of those AAVTs for a while (waiting for one with the add-on armour to pop up on eBay at a good price).

The Earth is not quite moving yet, but it trembles in anticipation...



The cab is almost enclosed nownerd

Carry on chaps,

As usual with GBs now there is some great stuff going on. Steve your virtual rebuild is a real labour of love and Alistair that is one beautiful cabin.

Me? Well have got this far thinking

My AAVR-7 is progressing, I've finished the running gear - tedious and boring 2 part track links

Good to see some updates! smile d

Steve- up to your usual high standards of detailingnerd

Jim- nice and neat, as usualthumbs up

Dave- got the dull bit done early then! All fun from here...wink 2

Had a week of no bench time, as I had an audit & technical review with an American customer, but I managed an evening at the bench tonight, working on the PE folding platforms that surround the cab:




Will try and do a fuller update on my blog later.

Some outstanding choices taken and good progress made by the group, props.

This test fit is config1. Config2 would be if rock crusher is completed in time. I will attempt only the 1st stage rock crusher as the 2nd stage crusher/screener is too complex to execute the w/poor ref material available to me. The other vehicles are mostly complete, just some decals & paint touchup to do on most of them. The crusher & base will be worked in tandem going forward w/other vehicle work being completed as they are added to the base. That's the Plan anyhow.

I'll do a config2 test fit when the crusher frame, suspension, & wheels are completed. C&Cs welcomed. PaulE

Jim, if your report reads must try harder, then I'm in real trouble!disgust

The lower hull is built with a couple of the winch parts, I've been busy with normal life things, leaving very little time for modelling.sad

Paul - love watching your complex dios come together. Even at the small scale they must be pretty big.

Graeme - even being retired I find there are not enough hours in the day. Looks a nice neat build and always good to get some major parts behind you.
