Going to have a couple of figures with my build, cant decide if I'm happy using this guy here, not specifically for this position but fits pretty well.

Opinions would be very helpful for making my mind up.

Bit more detail on the side built too.

Hadn't really thought about that spud, what would you recommend? plenty of heads lying around.

Think I'm going to have about three guys at rest.

I like your logic, might try and hollow out a hat to be held in his hanging hand.

Think I may have finished the kit, bit of mystery p.e left over but I have had quite enough of that stuff for the time being.

Need to do a bit of filling on the chap (happy with the head transplant) and a couple of gaps on the puma, will do this after the interior is painted and I can glue the top and bottom of the hull together.

Need to make some decisions about stowage, camo netting and the diorama-esque base.







Cheers again, Alan.

Chris I think the speed of the build can be attributed to having been waiting to do this for ages and having a new job in a new area, no commitments, evenings are mine.

I'm feeling a bit nervous about getting the paint on TRM been a while, excited though. This will commence on Monday I think.

Think I may change the aerial, looks a bit chunky now its on, have some spare 0.5mm wire that should do the job.

Alan.

Haven't had Susan out for a while so gave her a good cleaning with some white spirit, Susan of course being the name I gave my air brush.

I've given the 234 an initial coat of tamiya 'hull red' which has gone on to all the surfaces cleanly. Doesn't make for a particularly exciting photo up date but never mind. Managed to detach a pick-axe in the process but that'll go back on before the next coat.



The interior will be getting all the attention next so I can seal it up. May have to do some filling after its sealed along the top and bottom hull join but this shouldn't be an issue.

Cheers Al

why does it have 2 steering wheels?

Good question, having dual controls allowed the 234 to be manoeuvred rapidly in either direction out of trouble. All eight wheels provided drive and steering making it pretty advanced at the time.
