Thanks fir the kind comments. I'm beginning to think this should be under 'buildings and scenery' rather than vehicles, it's not like it will be moving about much...

So here's the next bout of progress. The tank now has a 'door' on each side and about 120 holes in various places ready for fitting 'rivets'

Even more important for the younger member of the team, the seven barrelled gun/door combination works:

Next: rivets and detailing...

Many thanks for the kind comments...

Exams are over, and tank building can continue. we raided the original kit that donated our caterpillar tracks for some extra detailing parts, and added about 250 rivets:

Right now it looks almost baroque, like something that the french court may have made to put down the revolution. If said revolution had been in a steampunk world.

We decided the back looked a bit empty like this, so hung a few more bits off it:

I also added a bit more of the steam locomotive paraphernalia, although it isn't terribly obvious in these pictures, you can just see what is supposed to be a dome/safety valve.

Next, priming and painting, which means we have to decide what colour it should be. I'm thinking about Royal Navy...

Any thoughts?
