Getting there Harv. 

I've come across a few kits where they make you slice off rivets or numbers from a sprue and glue them onto other bits. I think I tried it once and gave up. But that was in 1/35 so the rivets were much tinier.

The "added" rivets were not as bad as i first thought.  The do stand a bit proud so you can get a thin saw under them.....harv

Looking good Harvey.   If I was to build a target, this would be top of my list.

When I was at Hobby Lobby a month ago I picked these up. Insert tube into "spring" and bend. The tightness and flexibly  bends without crimping. Theses made by K&S. $5......HARV

Nice! How did you bend the tubing without it crimping?

The classic way to do it is to fill the tube with fine grained sand properly before bending, but the coil thing looks interesting.

Looking great Harv, are you planning to show the engine, would be a shame to hide your nice work.

Cheers Rob

Thanks all ! Rob, all the hatches will be open. On aircraft I dont do that. But this begs to be open.....harv

Nice Harv. I've seen plumbers use these in 'real life' scale to bend copper pipe but never seen them for modelling. $5 seems a bit of a steal. :thumbsup2:

Probably my least favourite part of a tank. All the bogies that need seam clean up.

I love how it has a model paint rack inside. Those French tankers were obviously keen modellers. :thumbsup2:
