Super neat and interesting build, Oliver! I love the coloration and the rather gentle weathering, and the load of accessories looks quite cool - overall, rather inspiring to me as I plod along with a Merkava build...! I like it a lot! Thanks for sharing it!

I do, however, wish to gently encourage you to add on some sort of tie-downs to all those neat rolled-goods. I was looking to see some tie-downs as you did mention adding some straps later on... The rolls would have no chance of simply staying up on the turret during movement - so some ropes or maybe straps to nearby tie-down loops would really add a lot to the picture, I think.

Cheers! Bob

Thanks for the comments. I think I have no other choice than adding more straps

I modified the position of the rolled blankets (or whatever they are) on the right side bin. They are now strapped to the tie-downs.
Thanks for the comment Bob.

Hi Olivier,
Like your build & nice work with the Milliput. I've one in my stash & probably will start it next.

Thank you Lee. I'll post a build article to my site soon. It could help a bit to avoid the 'traps' of the kit.

As I mentioned it in my previous post, I have uploaded to my site a full build article about this kit.

Enjoy the visit,
Olivier
