Hi All,

In a lot of cases on the Carrier I'm having to stay away from our usual plasticard parts as we are keen to go straight to metal moulds with as many of the parts as we can. This means some parts that would normally be quite quick and easy are having in effect to be sculpted, hammered and bashed :-) Multiples like the Deep wading mountings will go on the first mould and then we will run enough for to add to the second so we run either a half or whole set each time we spin. I'm now waiting for these to set so I can make the rest of the visor cover setup.

Best regards

Dave

Hi All,

Carrier vison port cover finished. I've made these so they use the two existing bolts above the vision port and they are assembled assembled in the open position. This was the only way I could easily incorporate them into the kit parts. It can be assembled as left or right hand version to suit ports. Also made a new Rifle Butt shoe for the rear engine cover.

Received my Boys ATR and PIAT in the post today. Think I will probably be going with the Scout version and Boys but got the PIAT just in case.

Best regards

Dave
