@CharlieC: Thanks for the link. I've seen one of those walk-arounds courtesy of Google's image search, but for some reason I didn't get the other three until I drilled down from the main page.

@ju52man: I still have a while to go before the model is finished. This last build still had some mistakes where I had made some parts too short -- given the thickness of the cardstock. There are still some details I want to add to the back... but after that I intend to make the model available.

There's an Australian pattern carrier outside an RSL club a few km from my place. The interior isn't in good shape but the suspension and transmission look ok - if you want some images just ask.

Regards,

Charlie

This is excellent, jmodule!

You have built a fine model of a very widely-used vehicle that was, as Charlie noted, the basis for a number of other vehicles. I appreciate your showing us how you designed it.

If you ever make it available, I'd be in line to purchase this one for sure. And if not, I hope you will continue to share information on this model and that you are inspired to develop more British AFVs.

Near the Finish Line

I'm getting close to finishing this model. Two more test builds and I've convinced myself that I've reached the limit of detail that I would want to build on a 1/72 model. Printing it out on something lighter than 200 gsm paper might help, but I didn't have anything on hand to try.

The last major piece was the hitch on the back. It's fiddly to put together, but I wanted it available as part of the kit.

Looks to me like a good level of detail for most modelers. Those wanting more have an excellent starting point. If you make this one available, I definitely want one!

And any other 1/72nd British AFVs you may design in the future.

Ready for Download

I'm happy to announce the kit is done and available for anyone to download here in the download section. I hope you'll have as much fun building it as I did designing it.

I feel like I've learned a lot from this model and I'll be taking that and applying to future models. Also if anyone finds a problem with the model or something unclear in the instructions, feel free to post it in this thread (or just send me a PM).

I have one under construction and hope to post pics in a couple of days. It's going together well. Excellent engineering, jmodule!

Don, that will be great to see some pictures. I'm very curious how it will turn out for other people. I know what I intended, but did I communicate it clearly to others.

Surprisingly, no one has tackled this in 1:33.

Great 1:72 model though!
