this is the first of the later type of suspension design i have put together, being a 2012 kit, it seems so far to be a bit easier, there is also something exciting about unpacking a new build, one in one out, thanks for the replys simon.

i am enjoying this stage of the build, the tiger hull went together very easily, the fit of these new kits is very good, i have some reading material to go on and also browsing the web, thanks for the encouragement, regards simon.

wheels are the main focus at the moment, its a bit like factory work only you keep the finished product, all the wheels have been cleaned on the lathe before etch primer is applied and the torsion bars painted before final fit, happy christmas to all regards simon.

the sturmtiger build is slow but still creeping along, i would like to get on it a bit more but time speeds up as i get older, any one else noticed this, regards simon.

Hi Simon,

Looking good your build on the Sturmtiger, love all the fine texture you apply to the body work.
As for time when one get's older, I find it slows down when working Armortek kits!

Cheers
Ian from Glasgow

The texture is very impressive. How do you do it? I need to put it on my Dad's todo list.

Looking forward to your build pics Simon, nice textures ,as regards time ,I agree it does speed up past a certain age ,plus the fact that every model you make, has to be better/more detailed than the last ,that's my excuse!

Detailed to the max as usual Simon. Don't know where you find the patience. I'm sure this won't fit in your cabinet when finished though and you will need to move it on :D
