About Gary Boxall (gastec)
FROM: AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND

Usual childhood of making Auirfix kits which dropped off the radar once further education was started. Picked up the scalpel again some 25 years later finding that the hobby has changed big time - but just as enjoyable.

Thank you all Brenton - Mk.IV and A7V already completed. Greg - just light application of dark earth pigments with a soft brush. Pigment fixer keeps it all in place. Laramie - yep, Meng tracks aren't that good. I used the Takom drive sprocket as the Meng one isn't a good fit with the Takom tracks.

Nice stuff! Really like the weathering and the fact that there are no great streaks of rust from every bolt head like some insist on doing! Keep it up Gary, like it a lot!
