    Thanks Andy, finally managed to get this one finished, kind of got side tracked building an abandoned VW bus model at the same time as building this one. Next tank kit I’m starting is going to be the British Matilda.

    This definitely is a masterpiece (again). Especially the rusty parts look incredibly real.
    If it is not a manufacturing secret: from what material did you make the cable of the winch?

    Best wishes,

    For the cable i prefer to use some sort of wire, usually picture frame wire works well but i had ran out so actually just used string on this model, it doesn't look anywhere as good as real wire but did the job. For the chains, i use lengths of really small brass chain.
