M3A1 Scout car finished, well almost!

I decided to put all the figures in place, and build wise that finishes the kit.
I still want to put it on a small base, but I still need to buy materials to do that.
So for now I consider this build finished!

Next will be creating the small dio.

The M3A1 build continues and a quick update on the Lightning.

First the hull and chassie was assembled. The wheels had poly caps so they’re just pushed on.

The machine gun railing was assembled. A bit fiddly with the movable gun holds, other than that they went on smoothly.

Then I started with some of the small parts like front lights. Accidently dropped the clear piece and couldn’t find it. I’ll see if I can solve that later.

I’ve also done a little puttying on the belly of the Lightning.
