VAM Spartan in all her glory.




Then I decided why not push for a more realistic looking Spartan aka CVR(T) FV103 with updated Command turret.

First Off I Cut out the molded Hatch, so it will be a working 3rd crewman hatch.





Next used the Command Hatch for the new crew hatch.




Now work on the new Command Turret. needs added height first off.




Now WIP test of Hatch on the Command Turret. Also need make Forward Lens, GIMPY mount etc.




Still plenty to do on the turret, then smoke tubes etc and sort out the Cage on the back to stow scrim net.

A very desirable vehicle at my Command Center, i've always wanted one. Your custom work is looking very promising so far, i've got a good feeling about this one! bounce

Got a little work done today on the Weapons base and mount.

Tick tac tubs and razor covers have their uses, along with good old balsa.
