Lovely tool box's and tools nick,your tank looks great.
The first thing I did when I saw your box's,was have a look to see if I had room on my running boards.
Yes I have.

Great Nick

Nick,

I must admit one of my most enjoyable bits of the build was making the tools and detail as its at this time that the model started to come to life and all the hard work was starting to pay off. On my Sherman the tools were the old generation solid white metal, so I cut off the metal handles and made wooden ones and thinned down the spade heads etc and then made some straps and buckles to hold them to the tank hull. It was a nice change from all the hull cutting and heavy work. Mind you I did convert the Sherman to a Firefly so the work was my own doing.

Hi Nick,

Superb video :wink: Looks like a brilliant proving ground, loads of space & fantastic weather :D .

I bet you enjoyed that, the Panzer III is so smooth and the suspension on the running wheels is a joy :D .

Thanks for sharing,
