    Some progress made....
    The second front seat,the "mailbox" on its back, the back of the bench and the cylinder besides the front seat that maybe is a gazmask or something.
    Also glued the outer skin on the right side.

    You're certainly using your vacation time to good adantage. Lots of progress on a beautiful model. Thanks for sharing the progress.

    Cheers --- Larry

    The supporters for the wheels was made today.

    First the drawing and the parts to be used.
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The assembly of the part is done without reinforcement of any kind....so very careful handling here
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Some other parts involved, finished , and the rear "thing"
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    And here the supporters are mounted.
    [​IMG]

    The inside of the vehicle are finished also (almost) but a few ittems have to wait until the upper part is mounted.

    I have started on the upper part of the chassis.
    I replaced the printed "net" on the ventilation holes with some painted gaz.
    The inside is almost finished.The part 23 is the gunholder and will be put in when it's all assembled.
    And working on finishing the "windows" in between....

    I think I have to dissapoint you :)
    I'm not going to stop....I have a pile of models waiting, and it might take a lifetime to get them all built .... and I don't stop ordering new ones either...
    so the pile is rising :)
    The 1:16 scale is really fun to build, so I think I will continue this path for a while.
