Progressed towards final assembly today. Primed it and sprayed on a few clumsy coats of gun metal paint to match other tanks I have then started putting it together.

No real issues there. Noticed a few mistakes underway but do not care in the slightest!

Motors went in fine, greased up the bearings as I went.









I dislike having to undo screws and such to charge batteries and so so I mounted a box under th erear hatch that just squeezes in between rear hull and motors. Into this I mounted a set of banana ports and a fairly high amp switch. I will wire these into the tank when I get around to the electrics I guess.

I have been avoiding the wheels as they lack hubcaps but that has to be done next and I am not sure how I will tackle those.

Lposter I always enjoy your threads. You are a innovative, very clever expert builder. I look forward to your next
construction projects.

Finally wrapped up construction. All thats left is a headlight lens but I have no plastic to make one.

I take my holidays next week so will attend to electrics and so on after I get back.

Really glad this one is done. It was a real tiny tank and they are a pain.













And to put its petite size in perspective...here it is beside a U-19 and a Type 5.








I have also been busy with my next tanks and will put a thread up as soon as I am ready to start.

Thanks for all the nice words over the thread. They really help to push on through to th eend.

You have one of the most unusual and interesting collection of uncommon tanks I've seen. Well done.
