Hi Mike

Certainly a lot of work but you are clearly doing a fine job both in terms of your research and in your scratching ability.

This is a lovely combination of upgrades and scratch building Mike nerd I had a thing for the M113 in my first modelling life, and built a bunch of ACAVs and Zeldas back then (nowhere near this standard though!). Can’t wait to see what you do nextsmile d

This is one of the photos from the Michael Mass/Adam O'Brein Zelda Part 1 book I am working from, there is a better one, but that is looking straight into the rear of the vehicle. The reason I chose this one is that it also shows the rear door latch mechanism and this is for the Mk. 1 and I started on the Mk. 2 so it was some quick work with the knife to rectify it. In reality I just had to cut out the plasticard.rear doorwaypic.jpg

So, as I said earlier it has been a bit of a mish-mash day. The rear latch was put to one side through lack of concentration and I decided to cut out a few of the resin parts from the moulding blocks. This led to test fitting the front one and this in turn led to brass folding and soldering of the front left bin which is now in place complete with tie downs. And tomorrow it will be part two of the tool box rack which somewhere between AC/DC and other rock, was soldered the wrong way about. But all has been seperated, I will fill up the gas gun and get to it tomorrow. Cheers, Mike.frontbin1a.jpgfrontbin1.jpgsiderack1.jpg

Alistair, you asked what was next? I have a Canadian LAV 111 in the stash with loads of resin and brass that I would like to finally get on with, but it is a lot of work chopping up kits etc. And then I have had this lurking about for some time which I might finally get around to finishing...Cheers, Mike.churchilwinch.jpg
