Where have I been? I've been working on a build article for Tamiya Military Modelling Magazine International. I've been cleared to post a few pics on Facebook, so here they are. I've done extensive work on this ICM kit, including the Eduard Big Ed set and a ton of scratchbuilding. It's getting close to finish line- cheers!

Thanks, everyone! Naturally I've gone and made more paint passes on the model- getting a good 'patina' on. Had nightmares about making the radar aerials the other night- they will be the very last addition to complete the kit! Oliver, I'll never put nazis in my builds again- even though Fritzi and Hannah are double agents who become American citizens after the war. Too many REAL nazis are infesting America at the moment to lend them ANY support whatever- just won't do it.
Cheers!
