Tasca Luchs

Yeah I know I know I've started something else. The SS-23 is proving frustrating and is slow going so I pulled this kit out of the stash just for the hell of it. So far it's been GREAT to put together but then again it is a Tasca kit so enough said :o)
Progress so far;
 This shot below is looking into the model as I put a thick-ish length of styrene under the glacis plate as support at the front.

 When adding the side vision ports be aware that the slot is nearer the bottom. I almost buggered that one up as although there's not much in it there IS a difference.
So far it's been a quick build and VERY enjoyable. I will be returning to the SS-23 AND the T-90 but this is how I roll :o)

SS-23 teaser pic number 3 (I think)

I bet you thought I'd forgotten all about this one did'nt you?

After a LOT of fettling and sanding the basic hull is all together so it's onto the wheels and suspension when I've finished filling some HUGE gaps. I don't know whether it's my fault or the fact it's just one-of-those-things with resin kits but anyway I've got this far :o)

Of course by the time I've built this model Trumpeter would have released theirs....in fact there will probably LOADS built before I'm done with this. I can't wait to get an injection-moulded kit on the bench next lol
