My longtime project was completed.
Here is a scratch build 1/72 Vickers Mk.VI B.

If the ACE kit had come out earlier, I could make it easier.
But much thanks to ACE for their very nice tracks!



















Now I'm looking for nice decals fit to this vehicle.

I hope you like it.
Thank you.

What a fantastic model. Superb skill, if only 1% of your scratch building skill I would be a happy modeller.
Hope to see more of your work in the future

Hi Mutsuhito,

Wonderful scratch-building, superb paint job, what more can be said. I look forward to the final details being added and would love to see more of your work.

All the best,

Paul

Very, very nice scratch building, and the ACE tracks look great!

How did you go about creating the rivet detail?

Cheers,
Peter

Did you use IBG Bren parts too?

I have the Airfix/JB decals if you like
they are 1/76 & seems small though

Dan Taylor does a set

That is the most amazing small scale scratch build I've ever
seen. If you ever do A9/A13 British cruiser tanks I'll cry
if you don't make a mould of them.
