Hi all,

Happy New Year and best wishes to you!
I hope you had a good start into the new year and are now rested and fit, eager to continue running projects or ready to start something new.

Luckily I'm still with this project and so continued from the last update.
After sanding the outer armor I loosely fitted the wheels again for a visual concept check.
Yes, looks pretty much the way I intended.
I still have to figure out how to keep the interior visible in the final scene
most likely the rear ramp will be open.
Two comparison shots with the big brother
Siblings ;)
One section of the interior that I had not tackled so far was the center
Again slide-in-and-out
And a raised platform (on hydraulics) for the gunner
these are standard WH40K legs
So on the platform the gunner is raised waist high
again, the view through the rear ramp
Next I need to adjust the roof accordingly
the roof hatch cut out
Cool look
And the pieces spread out
The next evening I cut the opening for the crew hatches and the raised turret ring for the MG.
Last night I then worked on the suspension.
The first test mount
I finished and mounted 3 wheels...
more to come ;)
The front wheels will also need a different set-up
I hope you like today's update.
