Nice build Devo, though I myself would never build one, there is something about those side skirts that makes the thing Ugly

Perhaps I might try a European theatre version one day.

while I'm here: what are those venetian blind-like thingies on the turret? I've always wondered.

Hi Damian,
The blind looking panels are Combat Identification Panels(CIP).They come in a flat version as well that you see mounted on the front of the turret eg:Chellenger 2, Abram's etc.

They help identify friendlies when viewed through thermal sights and the like. I'm no guru on the items but they supposedly show up as a cooler spot on the vehicles fitted out with them.
Cheers,
Devo

but after seeing this yesterday, whilst on the phone in the office this morning I found myself doodling bloody tank pictures, my usual generic airframe images replaced with this!
Gawd knows what I was drawing, I wouldnt know a Panzer from a 1955 Studebaker but it had neat aerials with fox tails on 'em go figure

oh good job by the way and no it was just an aberration I am not going to build one!
