Meanwhile and back to reality, I’ve got the Italeri M24 Chaffee back on the bench;
It was sent along with some other kits from Doolittle Media as review samples for Model Military Int’l magazine. I did make a start on it months ago but I made a mess of the rear idlers by trying to put lightening holes in them and during the space of time between Italeri sending replacement parts, the project was shelved.
As I have a load of projects in various stages of construction I need to really clear some so this is the first candidate. It will still be done as an article but as well as a build review it will also show what can be done with older kits, some etch and modelling skills.
