Hello Andy Looks like your off to a great start. What wheels are you using. I'd like to see more pics, and of the gunners box. I assume you scratchbuilt it. Again...looks great. By the way, is that the new gun truck book you have, if so how is it.

I too just last week finished a M923A2, pics in my gallery

Yo Andy! First time ive seen you here mate, I just tried to reply to your post of this on the ML CC but there doing some repairs or something??

This is looking very good! The teeth came out perfect and they look pretty mean. Overall very nice. Is this rehab for your T-55 addiction? :-) It will be nice to see it once those figures are in it.

Hello all!!, just a small update on the painting stages. Airbrush work just about done, so weathering can start!.. The base kit is the Italeri M923 Bigfoot, and wheels are Mr Models resin replacements, although these are i think actually for the Hemmt, i had to remove the center of the front wheels and add the center part of the kit wheel..I now realize that AA do some Bigfoot wheels!!!!...
