Hi all,

Ive been working on Tamiyas' M51, converting it to a later version than appears in the kit.

Pictures tell the tale. Few last minute things to do, but its basically ready for paint. Tracks are just placed on for the photos, hence they're a little floaty boaty.

Crew stowage and additional hull side boxes are my own.

Let me start by saying that I love what you're doing here.
Would it be possible to post a picture of the engine deck? I noticed you did something there too.
Thanx in advance and let us see the next steps of WIP, please!

Thanks again and happy modelling!

Nice clean build - excellent!
What PE set did you use for the periscope cages, and are those formations tools?

Cool M-51 Sam!
Where does the searchlight come from? Or does it come with the kit?
cheers, Jan
