I had to do several changes. First I removed the sideguns and closed the holes with plastic sheet. The holes are nearly square and so it is not a problem. Then I cut down the drivers cab and closed the gap, too.
I added a searchlight and the snipped observation slits of the drivers cab. Scratch built hatches for the crew on the deck and sides. On the right side there is a bigger hatch to allow more easy service and loading. I added front pull hooks and draw hooks on the rear side.
Steering wheels and suspension I cut down. The motor is now in the rear of the vehicle.
I used some brass parts as ventilation grids and used an exhaust (I think it was from a Matilda Tank?, I am sorry, I don`t remember this).
I made some rivets an the new sides but I am not satisfied with the result. I will do this better next time.
Footboards at the sides and a short ladder in the rear, grips, a MG in the front, tools to complete the hull.
The turret is from a LVT-1. My first idea to use a FT-17 turret was not good, because the FT-17 turret is much to small. There is a slight conversation of the turret withe the handle on it.
The turret holds in place by a magnet. It is fully rotatable and removable.
Hope you like it!
