I have started to re-assemble the bogie's, put on the new lift box brackets, and made the folding winding handle and securing clasp

Hi Simon, you would not regret making the 88, and if you like modelling, the sky's the limit, and unlike the tanks where most of the extra details are placed on the outside, you are working in 3D with this, and with a little thought and effort, you can get most of the additional details to function, on Sunday I made the winding handles, these pull out and the handle folds down, then while looking at some pictures last night, I noticed a T shape bar at the bottom of the handle tube, and realised that this operated a sprung loaded locking bar, made this tonight, works a treat, so as you can see I am more than pleased with this model

Superb work again Jeff. Was the winding handle not included in the kit as this is a very noticeable bit of detail?
