I thought I would finally post some of my work in progress on here, largely because I have finally made some progress.  Inspired by the girlfriend working on her Warhammer Orks I decided to finally get round to making something.  And in the space of a few days from start to finish I ended up with this.






Parky Dundas early southern PMV made up to be from the 1921 batch of SECR builds.  I did want to build the 1919 prototype but I can't quite find enough out about it so it may have to leave that until a later date.  I have adapted the design so that the chassis and body can be seperated if necessary - waste plastic sprues glued in the body hold the floor in place and the floor then clips into the ends with the buffers holding it in place.



The drawgear then holds everything in place when assembled.



Not exactly a finescale bodge but it works.  I'm just waiting on some fox SECR transfers to complete the look and then it is finally complete.  It makes a nice change from maunsell green I think.

Regards,
Chris

I sometimes regret playing Warhammer 40K Dawn of War on the PC in front of her.  I rue the day when she inquired what those green things are . . . she now has an entire army and puts me to shame as she does more modelling than I do!

AAagh! I was caught the same way, in a way! On one of SWMBO's birthdays I [for a joke] I presented her with a fishing rod, she thinking she was getting a stand for a tapestry frame.........

"Oh! I always wanted to try fishing but didn't think you wanted me to spoil your days out....."

Well, at least the packed lunches got better...

[Nice project, by the way]
