Turretless armor, right down my alley. The UC looks exceptional and I really like the figures. Nice details to spot everywhere, did I mention the nets on the helmet? 
Welcome to LSM by the way and feel free to post a WIP about the Archer. I have both, the Archer and the UC in my stash, but the Universal Carrier is the Riich incarnation.
I nearly forgot to praise the great presentation.

Cheers Rob

Well, first time you say ? Damn nice intro. Not much of an armor guy, but can apreciate the craftsmanship of this. Very well done......harv :151_41_44_712.09472830013627761

thanks Harv for the comment. I wish I could say I whipped out pretty quickly but this little kit with the pe parts took about 8-9 months to build. I bought a few books on master modeling to read as well as lots of test painting on sprues etc. the last model i built was when I was 13, a 1;48 spitfire. As you can imagine it looked like it was put together very roughly. Now that I just retired, decided to built up some models that my relatives were part of during their time in the second world war.
