This one is ready to paint. I reworked the ESCI hull and used parts form the Tamiya kit plus I rebuilt some parts with card. The fenders are all scratch work using sheet brass.The turret is from Def models and its a great kit. Some PE is from Eduard. I have some link tracks from Bronco to finish it off.
If there`s anything missing please feel free to let me know before I put the primer down.

Hi Chris,
That is going to look really good after a coat of paint. Good choice to use Bronco tracks as the AFV Club ones I put on my M728 fell apart after weathering, I think it was the white spirit I used to bed down the Mig powders. By the way were you able to get a good fit of the roadwheels? I used the Esci kit and they were very sloppy.

Regards
Andy K

Yeah Andy I had the same problem with the AFV tracks now I have 6 sets I can`t use. for the wheels I drilled them out to make them work with the Tamiya suspension arms so it will be heavy glue to make them stay.

Thanks Dave I`m hoping to model a USMC tank leading up to the Gulf war I`m check right now to see if it can be Tan camo if not I`ll go with the MERDC in the tan if that works.
