  • Looks really cool though! Nice job! I won some parts for my MSV last night. Getting a new radar dish, green locking ring, and a couple of satellites. I also will have some parts for the searchlight. Just need a good housing for it now. Cheers!

    • Good luck collecting the odds and ends!

      • Made some progress on my Stuart. I need to put on Insignia and markings after the paint job below.
        You'll see that I replaced the cannon with a 37 mm anti-tank gun. It looks much better on the Stuart than the original dart-shooting cannon.

        Here it is in kangaroo configuration... No turret.

        I moved all of the electronics out of the way. So the fighting apartment is empty, and ready for detailing.

        I can also remove the top of the hull, for access to the interior. I suppose it could be an artillery hauling vehicle or armored personnel carrier in this configuration. I need to dream up an interior that will work when it's in tank configuration as well as artillery hauling or kangaroo configuration. maybe it could be some kind of adventure team vehicle. I don't know yet... That's part of the fun of customizing.

        I like versatility! Being able to access the interior of the tank gives it more play value, too!

          • Man it's been a long time since I've picked up anything to work on. I've been diving into work, and getting caught up there after some time off. I don't know when I'll get back to things - but I did receive my repro decals for the MSV, and I also got a white plastic astronaut cap for my talking astronaut. Also got a helmet (missing the microphone) for my tank commander, and the last tent pole I needed for my white tiger set. I'm focusing now on decluttering the house, so I can make more room in my study, and hopefully start getting Joes up on the shelves, and vehicles off the floor. I keep thinking "next weekend", and then the weekend comes and we have so much to do, there's no energy for the basement reorganizing I need to do. Hopefully I'll catch a break soon and make some real progress. Anyway, once I have more done on my projects, I'll post the pics here. I like this forum better for photos cause it's much easier to find them again here. Cheers!
