Hi Paul.

Yes, i will put some figures, but outside, because they could to obstruct all interior work.

Driver's door and turret's grills will be open

Best Regards

It looks great, the interior will really give it some character. Aren't you tempted to replace the roof section mesh with a metal one to shed more light inside?

Cheers

Hi Piotr

In Nut & Bolts we can see that roof grills are over a metal thin plate. I think that this grill open was a very awful situation in combat time (snow and rain reaching inside: radio equipments, weapons dress..et cetera)

Although it will close interior light, roof grills will be closed

Best Regards

I was planning to hack out the top off the upcoming 221, now I'll need to think twice.

Cheers

Hi Piotr.

As I can to see in FtF 221 sprues, mg mount is nearly correct. Interior plates have some detail (light, but sufficient for this space)

I think that you will can build it open without problems (if you are not a nut counter) ☺
Best Regards
