    Ive not started it yet Mike but your right. There are a few fiddly bits. Especially the photoetch witch is very thin brass that can bend easily. But it is a challenge and i am up for it. WIll go nice with my sherman.

    So today i finally started my build of my Tiger and i began with fitting the exhaust. I had to do them twice. The parts are so small i had to use a magnifying glass.

    I managed to prep the wheels and do the suspension.

    You always do such neat and methodical layouts of everything. Still looks complicated!

    Thank you suzi. I found out tonight i glued the wheels on back to front , so i had to take them all off again and re do them. I also found out i am not going to have a working suspension. Dragon in their wisdom has decided to go with bars across the floor in a fixed position rather than the usual way of doing it. Ah well. Starting the interior tomorrow.
