So, i finally finished this. Here comes Whippet!

The whole idea of this build was a try to make movable tracks; partially i achieved this - tracks are movable but tank still can't roll, there is too much friction (plus obviously track chains were assembled not enough accurately, though you may see this). Machineguns are also movable. It was rather tough build, i faced with couple of serious mistakes in design, one of them i couldn't fix because i noticed it too late - if you look at engine covering, you may see what i mean. However, in general i'm satisfied with what i've got.

Great models Alex. Referring back to your first post on this thread, Bruno (Scissors and Planes) has a Vickers Valiant in 1/300 scale on page 30 post #295 of his thread. Click on the link below and scroll down the page to post #295.

Vickers Valiant

There also may be one in 1/100 scale that you could purchase from him, but I haven't confirmed it.

So here comes photo set. Fiat-15 ter 1,5 lorry and Fiat-Terni tripoli, light armoured car based on 15 ter chassis.

Since it was essentially a test builds, some design mistakes were revealed. The biggest trouble was with rear springs, on both models they're too long, and since they already were glued on the place i couldn't replace them, so i had to glue rear axle over springs, not the under as it should be; also rear axle is a bit too long in both cases and has to be shortened.
