Nice to have y'all aboard ;)

I was hoping to finish up paint on the Marder and get some basecoats on the Arado today ....but the light and the weather is rubbish here with the rain & wind again ::)
So I've made a bit of a start on this one ;D

Ok ,Time I got an update done ::)

So ,I started with the main gun cradle & gun . The gun is not fixed in place yet ,its just there for the pic .Im going to have to build and paint this one in a number of sub-assemblies.
I still have some filler to rub down on some parts and other bits need tidying ,so apologies if it looks untidy ::)






The Gun its self doesnt actually recoil on these ,rather the whole cradle slids along two big main rails or chassis if you like .










It looks a lot further on than it is ,there is still LOTS of work to do !!

Thanks for looking.

Chris.
