Hello Yves,

You really made a lot of progress. Do it in two tone camouflage like my Panther and we are invincible. I really love this yellow finish. Nice to see how you did the moving bow machine gun. Much more simple than my solution. Will be great to see it in action. Can't wait, and keep them pictures coming... :!:

Groetjes,

Marcel
